With summer approaching and National Ice Cream Month just around the corner (July!), we’ve decided to try something fun to celebrate ice cream in July. We’re going to attempt to set a Guinness World Record for SOMETHING ice cream related.
The only problem is, we can’t seem to agree on which record to attempt. That’s where you come in. We’ve narrowed the list of potential records down to the NUMBER frosty feats below. Leave a comment with the one you think we should attempt in July!
1. MOST ICE CREAM SCOOPS THROWN AND CAUGHT IN ONE MINUTE BY A TEAM OF TWO – The record for most ice cream scoops thrown and caught in one minute by a team of two is 25, achieved by Gabriele Soravia (thrower) and Lorenzo Soravia (catcher) (both Germany), on the set of a Guinness World Records TV show in Cologne, Germany, on September 1, 2007.
2. MOST ICE CREAM SCOOPS BALANCED ON A SINGLE CONE – The most ice cream scoops balanced on a cone is 100 and was achieved by Ashrita Furman (USA), at the kitchen of the Sri Chinmoy Center in Jamaica, New York, USA, on October 17, 2013. (That’s him above with his record-setting cone.)
3. MOST ICE CREAM CONES PREPARED IN ONE MINUTE – The most ice cream cones prepared in one minute is 19 and is held by Mitch Cohen (USA), who broke the record on the Food Network TV show Paula’s Party on June 28, 2007.
