Lemmer, the Netherlands – Holland Foodz gave the order to produce a 30 meter high cinnamon stick to Polem. On June 24th, it was transported to Oosterhout, in the south of the Netherlands. The giant stick candy will be placed next to the candy factory building, alongside a highway.
Holland Foodz is a manufacturer of typical, old-school Dutch candy, cinnamon sticks being one of them. Since 1894, the cinnamon stick has been made in accordance with an original recipe in Oosterhout.
