YouTube Video: Roby Sets Record for World's Longest Candy Kane

The All Chocolate Kitchen's Alain Roby has done it again, setting the Guinness World Record for "World's Longest Sugar Cane."

Chef Alain Roby of Geneva's All Chocolate Kitchen set the Guinness World Record for "World's Longest Sugar Cane" Saturday in downtown Geneva, IL.

Roby's sugar cane creation stretched 51 feet when all was said and done, shattering the previous world record of 38 feet, according to an article in the Kane County Chronicle.

Roby's 51-foot feat is his third Guinness record, the previous being his 12-foot-10 "World's Tallest Cooked Sugar Building" and 20-foot-8 "World's Tallest Chocolate Sculpture," according to the All Chocolate Kitchen website.

The Daily Herald said Roby was shooting for a 45-foot candy cane on Saturday night, but eclipsed that by the height of a good-sized man.

News of the achievement has been spread around the world in website articles from Zagat to the World Record Academy. There's also a YouTube video, attached here.
