World's Biggest SnoCone ~ Will Bahama Buck's do it?

Bahama Buck's World's Biggest SnoCone

December 7 - 9, 2010

For more details visit:

Blake Buchanan, president of Bahama Buck's, is leading the charge as his company, which is a collection of nearly 30 shaved ice shops, attempts to break the Guinness record for the world's biggest snow cone. This is part of a three-day effort called the Sno Angel Project, to raise funds for at-risk kids in Lubbock, Texas at the Children's Home of Lubbock. Individuals, groups and businesses are encouraged to buy blocks of ice that ultimately provide local kids with safe housing and other support programs. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to this charity.
It is the company's 20th year of doing business, having spent the entire time based in Lubbock. The snow cone will contain a whopping 10,221,120 calories, includes 16,080 pounds of snow, 14,160 pounds of birthday cake flavored syrup.
Other fun facts include:
  • The current Guinness record is a 4,640 pound snow cone. This one will hopefully
  • It would take 60,480 people to each eat one 8 oz. serving
  • Since each 8 oz. cup is approximately 169 calories, this giant treat would be 10,221,120 calories
  • If one person ate one 8 oz. serving per day every day, it would take that person 164 years to complete the job
  • The ginormous beverage would fill 60,480 8 oz. containers and would contain approximately 9,000 pounds of pure cane sugar
  • The "cup" will be 10 feet tall and 8 feet in diameter (26 foot radius)
  • Said "cup" is actually a high-density polyethylene bulk storage tank
  • Yes, a humongous lid will also be included (no plans for a straw, though)
