World's Longest Ice Cream Dessert

Some much needed positive news out of Guinness World Records: Citizens and passersby in Wolf Pen Creek, Texas recently rolled up their sleeves and worked together to create what is now officially the world’s longest ice cream dessert, measuring in at 4,549 ft, 3.36 in, which the Guinness people helpfully point out is just 200 meters shy of a whole mile.

I guess technically the world’s longest ice cream dessert is a sundae, since it’s ice cream topped with various syrups and other toppings, but the word just seems inadequate for something at this scale, somehow. It was made using 500 gallons of HEB-brand Texan Tackle Crackle ice cream (a vanilla and candy crunch chocolate swirl blend), then “topped with 300 gallons of chocolate and strawberry syrup, 2,000 cans of whipped cream, 25 pounds of sprinkles, and 20,000 cherries.”
