Like Kingston in ’14, Mich. city boasts sundae record
Guinness says a roughly halfmile-long ice cream concoction made this past June was the longest ever.
Guinness World Records says a roughly half-mile-long ice cream sundae that was gobbled up in Michigan this past June was the longest ever.
The sundae was created about two years after hundreds of people gathered in Downtown Kingston in pursuit of the same record.
The Ludington Daily News reported the Michigan sundae measured a little over 2,970 feet in length and fed thousands of people lining eight blocks.
House of Flavors organized the ice cream event in Ludington, which is 100 miles northwest of Grand Rapids.
Ludington’s record might be short-lived, however. MLive.com reports Moo-ville Creamery and others in Nashville, Mich., tried to break the record Sept. 17, making a dessert that spanned 3,656 feet. That effort has not yet been certified a record.
According to Guinness, the previous longest ice cream dessert was created in 2015 in Manurewa, New Zealand, measuring 1,957 feet and 1 inch.
In July 2014, Boice Brothers Dairy in Kingston celebrated its 100th anniversary by having locals create a 1,606-footlong sundae in T.R. Gallo Park along the city’s Rondout Creek waterfront. At the time, that sundae was said to bested the standing record by more than 300 feet.
Volunteers gather in Luddington, Mich., this past June in an effort to create the world’s longest ice cream sundae.
