A cookie bakery in Nashville, Tennessee recently attempted to break a Guinness World Record by assembling over 3,000 sugar cookies in a line at a baseball stadium.
On Monday, June 13, Christie Cookie Co. assembled a line of sugar cookies at First Horizon Park, the home of Triple-A Nashville Sounds of the International League – in an effort to beat the record for the longest cookie line. Unfortunately, the attempt was disqualified due to the bad weather, as increased wind made the cookies inedible after being lined up.
“We’re breaking a world record for the most cookies in a row. We’re laying out over 4,000 cookies. It’ll be over about 800 feet,” Christie Cookie Co. head of direct to consumer Coco Kyriopoulos said before the attempt on Monday. “We were excited about the opportunity, and once we figured out this hadn't been done, we were like, “Oh, my gosh, let's do this.””
The Nashville Fire Marshal was to serve as the official counter, and the plan was for the Christie Cookie team to help him distribute the cookies to all of the fire stations across the city so that the treats wouldn’t be wasted.
According to Guinness World Records, UpSpring (USA) currently holds the record for the longest line of cookies/biscuits with 3,328 cookies. It was set on October 31, 2019 in Guangzhou, China.
Christie Cookie Co. plans to make a second attempt in the near future, although a date has not been confirmed as of this writing.
