People in the city of Lima received a big treat on Thursday as bakers and candy confectioners created the largest "turron" in Peru's history.
The traditional candy, which is popular in the month of October, is made from a sesame biscuit and honey base and is considered to be a popular treat in the Catholic faith.
The record-breaking turron was 50 metres (164 feet) long and weighed nearly 1500 kilograms (3,307 pounds).
"Turron is something delicious. You cannot compare it to any other treat in the world," said Lima resident Matias Valverde as he eagerly awaited a taste.
In order to create the giant candy bar, bakers used more than 240 boxes of butter, 600 kilograms (1,320 pounds) of flour and 200 kilograms of sugar (440 pounds).
Lima Municipality Social Development director Edith Matias said the sweet treat was created to inspire the public's sweet tooth and to bring people close to Peruvian tradition.
"We want to position this (referring to the candy bar) inside our identity and culture because the turron is something Peruvian, it is something from Lima. It is something that is never lacking in Peruvian homes, especially in October," Matias said.
Parents and children in Lima lined up for hours to taste a piece of the enormous sweet.
