Norway makes world record ice cream cone
Norwegian ice-cream maker, Hennig Olsen, unveiled the world’s largest-ever ice cream cone in front of 9,000 people at the start of Sunday’s Tall Ships Race at Kristianstad.
The ice cream, which measured 3.08 metres from top to botton, was flown over Kristianstad quay hanging from a helicopter and placed in front of an expectant crowd of around 9,000 people.
Glen Pollard from the Guinness Book of Records had made the trip to Kristianstad and confirmed that the Norwegian ice cream cone was larger than that of the previous record-holders, Mirco Della Vecchia and Andrea Andrighetti of Italy who made their ice-cream in 2011.
The ice-cream consisted of 40 litres of homemade lingonberry jam and 1,080 litres of vanilla ice cream and 60 litres of chocolate - the biscuit cone alone weighed a whopping 75 kg.
Hennig Olsen’s sales manager,Trond Wøien, said that the idea for the record attempt came in January.
“Then it took us about four months to actually make the ice cream.”
