An Iranian confectioner has made five tons of ice cream in hopes of setting a new world record for the largest tub of the dessert.

The production drew hundreds of eager spectators to a ceremony to taste the chocolate ice cream, which measured 5 feet by 7 feet and which producers say cost more than $30,000 to make.

Board Member Mohammad Baheri of Choopan Dairy said the company aimed to register a new Guinness World Record and also boost Iranian ice cream consumption.

A Guinness World Records representative visited the tub. The current record belongs to U.S. producer Baskin-Robbins, which made an 8,865-pound tub in 2005.
