A record 891 people fired up 500 tabletop fire pits to break the record for the most s’mores created consecutively. The feat, organized by the Solo Stove company in Grapevine, Texas, broke a Gunness World Record set in 2018 by the Girl Scouts of Middle Tennessee. For those who were never Girl Scouts, s’mores are marshmallow and chocolate sandwiches toasted between graham crackers.
Solo Stove said it brought 500 Mesa tabletop fire pits to attempt the record for most people making s'mores simultaneously in Grapevine.
Solo Stove's event, dubbed S'moresapalooza, featured 891 making s'mores. A Guinness World Records adjudicator was on hand to verify the record.
The record was attempted in advance of National S'mores Day, celebrated annually on Aug. 10.
