Palmer Candy cooks up a big Bing to celebrate 135-years in business


Parade goers around Siouxland have hollered "Fling Me A Bing" to get their Sioux City treat.

The candy makers have now cooked up a 135-pound bing to celebrate Palmer's 135th anniversary.

The world's largest Bing will be on display for another week and half at the Palmer's Candy shop on West 7th and Wesley Parkway.

It is completely edible with a pink center and chocolate outer layer. It took about a day and half to make.

"Palmer's Candy is a fun place. And if you can kick up a little fun by having a big candy bar or drawing or something, just makes it a little more exciting for our celebration," said Jon Sadler, Palmer's Retail Manager.

Also back for a limited time is the Pineapple Bing.
