CRISP fan Hunter McEwan was gobsmacked when he pulled out a world record Hula Hoop.
The three-year-old’s fabulous find in a pack of BBQ beef flavour measures six inches — more than ten times the length of the regular ring-sized treats.

Dad James, 36, was taking older son Henry, 11, to a football tournament on Sunday when Hunter showed him the bag-buster bought from a petrol station.
The window fitter said: “At first, I didn’t really clock what he’d found because I was at the wheel.
“I pulled into the car park and I was in shock — so was Hunter.
“He kept asking if he could have a little nibble of it and I said, ‘Absolutely not’.
“I read up about the previous records and I realised Hunter had beaten them.”
It beat the previous best of 5½ins, set by two-year-old Charlie Richards in July.
Before that the top find was 5ins, found by Alec Linley in Kent last April.
James, of Hanwell, West London, is still awe-struck by the half-foot, meat- flavoured cylindrical whopper.
He said: “You have to be proud.
“I’ve put it in a Tupperware box to avoid anyone accidentally breaking it.
“Eventually, I might let the little one eat it because I know he’s been wanting to.
“Either that or I’ll divide it up for the whole family because it’s so big!”
