SFoodie was on the scene when See's Candies earned the "World's Largest Lollipop" honors in the Guinness Book of World Records on July 20 in Justin Herman Plaza. Now, the West Coast candy giant is hauling out the impressive 16-foot, 7-inch confection for a few more public views.

It's currently on display at See's Candies flagship South San Francisco factory store until 4 p.m. today. This location carries the freshest product around; check out our rare private tour of the closed-to-the-public factory (210 El Camino Real at S. Spruce, South San Francisco; (650) 583-7307).

It then makes its way back to the city in time for the San Francisco 49ers pre-season game on Aug. 10 at Candlestick Park. You can catch it there on Aug. 12 as well during the second annual 49ers Fan Fest.

It probably goes without saying that free 'pops will be in abundance at each event.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
