SC students go for – and apparently break – ice cream sundae record

April 20, 2013 

— It was ice cream heaven Friday when a South Carolina school apparently broke the world record for building the longest ice cream sundae.

Students at the South Carolina Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics, along with faculty and staff members, created an 815-foot, 2-inch monster of a sundae on the school’s campus in Hartsville.

The previous record of 670 feet, 1 inch was set last year by a youth group in Cavalier, N.D.

Measurements were taken and formal documentation submitted to the Guinness Book of World Records – a sanctioning process that could take up to 90 days, organizers said.

The delicious dish, which consisted of vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, M&Ms, whipped cream and maraschino cherries, was made possible by local donations.
