World's Largest Popcorn Ball - 8 feet in diameter and 24 feet around!

SAC CITY, IOWA, ISN’T KNOWN for much. But what it is known for - the world’s largest ball of popcorn - it is quite proud of. The ball draws in visitors from all over (and many who are directed to the city and its popcorn ball, which is stored in a shed, by billboards that run alongside the nearby highways), which helps nearby businesses with tourism dollars.

The ball of popcorn is believed to weigh around 9,370 pounds. It measured eight feet in diameter and has a circumference of just over 24 feet.
