Man Saving 'World's Biggest' Hula Hoop In Case Museum Wants It

A man who found the 'world's biggest' Hula Hoop is keeping it tucked away in a box in case a museum catch wind of his lengthy snack.

Rowan Umland, 19, opened up his favourite salt and vinegar flavoured Hula Hoops and was gobsmacked with what he was greeted with.

The student reckons it's the world's biggest - dwarfing the average sized snack and beating previous contenders.

Consequently, the crisp lover isn't eating the rare find - instead he's keeping it in a box and says he could be tempted to sell the 3.7in crisp it if the price is right.

For now he's keeping it safe just in case Guinness World Records get wind of it.

Rowan from Peckham, south London, said: "I opened the packet and it was the first thing I saw - I couldn't believe it.

"I did consider eating it for a split second because I was hungry, but I thought it might give people a laugh so I put it to one side.

"I love Hula Hoops and I've eaten hundreds of bags in my lifetime, but I've never seen anything like this before.

"It's got to be one of the biggest - if not the biggest - in the world!

"I'm definitely not going to eat it, and it's being kept safely in a box - who knows who might want it one day? A collector, a museum? I've already had to tell my family 'hands off'!"

Rowan got the crisps from his local Sainsbury's and found the whopper on 11 May.

Previous records for the biggest ever were claimed in 2014 by a 31-year-old man who found a 3in long Hula Hoop and put it on eBay.

Then, in 2019 an eight-year-old lad beat it, with a 3in crisp he found in a bag he was munching as an after school snack.

Tom McGrath discovered the super-sized hoop before rushing to football practice to tell his pals.

At the time, the youngster said: "When I saw it, I was quite shocked and then I showed my mum and my dad and they were really surprised.

"I was tempted to eat it but it's lucky that I didn't because then it would have been gone for good."

His dad Fergal believed it could be a world record and described it as 'a whopper'.

Hula Hoops are produced by KP Snacks, a business founded in 1853 by Charles Kenyon but started making crisps in the 1940s. The popular snack launched in 1973.
