Town takes title of "World's Biggest PB & J"

By Morgan Chesky - bio | email

GRAND SALINE, TX (KLTV) - All it takes is peanut butter, jelly, and 2 slices of bread. But when you're trying to create the biggest peanut butter and jelly sandwich in the world it's going to take a bit more.

Folks in Grand Saline watched history today as a dedicated crew constructed the town's attempt at the world's biggest peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Nutty's Gourmet Peanut Butter proved everything is bigger in Texas by building a 1,342 pound PB & J.

Workers started building it around 2 this afternoon by spreading the peanut butter and jelly with rakes, hoes, and garden trowels. Guiness World Record officials were on hand to commemorate the occasion which took the title easily from the current record holder.

The previous world record from Oklahoma only weighed in at 950 pounds.
