New world record! Longest bread line achieved

A new Guinness World Record was set earlier this month when the longest line of breads was achieved by Universidad Vizcaya de las Americas in Mexico.

Students and faculty from the university joined forced to make the 4053m long line out of rosca de reyes bread, a traditional bread that is made to commemorate the January 6 Three Kings Day holiday.

Also known as Kings Cake, the delicious cake is an ornate sweet bread that is typically round or oval in shape and has a hint of orange flavour. A plastic baby figurine can be hidden inside the bread, representing the baby Jesus.

For the record, the bread line consisted of 14,360 breads laid end-to-end on tablecoth-covered tables, and it’s thought it took 2475 litres of milk, 26,280 eggs and 5060kg of flour to make the bread for the record.

According to the university’s social media it took more than 96 hours of preparation by the students to achieve the record.

Special thanks was given to two other campuses in Ensenada and Tijuana, who supported them, as well as Comedor Industrial Manuel Torres, Panaderia KAren, and Mexicali’s government authorities.

According to the Guinness World Records official site, the previous longest line of bread measured in at 3009.65m, and was set by the Tizimin and Camara de Comercio de Tizimin in Yucatan, Mexico, in 2020.
