An Iranian company is going for the Guinness and has unveiled a 5-ton tub of chocolate ice cream in hope of getting into the Book of World Records.

The diary company, Choopan, put the tub on display on Monday at a ski resort in Tochal, just north of Tehran, Agence France-Presse reports. The tub is more than 6 feet wide and 5 feet tall and so far, 10,000 have turned out at the site to see it, AFP says.

“We finished making the ice cream on Sunday, and it took us eight hours to fill the tub,” Khashayar Baheri, CEO of Choopan told AFP. “We recorded exactly how we made the ice cream, and we will give all the documents to Guinness as evidence to support our attempt.”

Baskin-Robbins currently holds the record for its tub of vanilla weighing just over 4 tons — 8,865 pounds — in 2005, AFP reports.
