Worlds biggest chewing gum ball!

This ball was made of 95,200 pieces of gum! now that's a record breaker!

Its creator was Barry Chappell. He made it because he gave up smoking and his son had just been born. He also made it because he was on a 6 hour flight and had no where to put his gum so he just kept adding to it. By the time the flight had finished he vowed to make the biggest ball of gum in the world!

Barry started rolling his gum into a ball back in 2006.
It’s been 6 years since he started! In 2012 it was 62 inches in circumference and weighs 175 pounds!
