Largest marshmallow
Berkhamsted School
93.10 kilogram(s)
United Kingdom (Berkhamsted)

The largest marshmallow is 93.10 kg (205.25 lb) and was achieved by Berkhamsted School (UK) in Berkhamsted, UK, on 22 October 2019.

The idea for this record attempt came from a student at the school, Josh Nunn, who suggested they make the world’s largest marshmallow in the shape of Pudsey the Bear’s head to raise money for Children in Need.

Berkhamsted School collaborated with Belinda Clark Confectioner who specialises in marshmallows to make this happen. They also received donations from a number of other companies, including Talbot Designs Limited, Waitrose, HB Ingredients, Town End and Marco.

A website was created to raise donations in support of the attempt and to auction off Pudsey in aid of Children in Need. The final bid was £550 and the winner was the Masterchef winner from 2019, Irini Zortzoglou. Pudsey was sent up to Irini who then distributed the marshmallow to raise money for the Jigsaw Children’s Hospice Charity.
