Texas is now home to a sweet new record for the Longest ice-cream dessert.

Thousands of volunteers gathered at the Spirit of Texas festival in Wolf Pen Creek last Saturday to whip up a dessert that stretched 1,386.62 m (4,549 ft 3.36 in), only 200 m short of a being a mile long!

The giant sundae was comprised of 500 gallons of H-E-B Texan Tackle Crackle ice-cream (a flavour that’s made with vanilla ice-cream and candy crunch chocolate swirl).

It was then topped with 300 gallons of chocolate and strawberry syrup, 2,000 cans of whipped cream, 25 pounds of sprinkles, and 20,000 cherries!
