HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - A small town in Tennessee now has the bragging rights for the world’s largest spam musubi.
Unofficially, the record now sits with Kimo’s Hawaiian Grill after dozens of people from Clarksville Tenn. took part in the challenge on New Year’s Eve.
Together, they constructed the Hawaii icon weighing in at 1,120 pounds, ClarksvilleNow.Com reports.
The fully edible creation shattered the old record of 600 pounds, which was previously held by Edward Sugimoto, the founder of “Ricefest” Honolulu, since 2012.
Sugimoto says, if Tennessee becomes the official world record holder, then the challenge is on. He’s already thinking about the possibility of building a bigger one at Ricefest 2021.
The Clarksville event was a benefit, which raised more than $3,000 for local charities.
The Massive musubi didn’t go to waste: It was deconstructed and repackaged to be eaten and enjoyed by those who wanted a piece.
