Doritos Sets A Nacho Record That Has To Be Seen To Be Believed
There are some records that I’m absolutely sure people train their whole lives to accomplish. Then there are world records like this that I’m absolutely sure people decided to do while drinking in a bar. Who even knew there was a record for the longest cheese pull from dip to chip? Apparently, some people at Doritos did. And now the record belongs to them.
Technically, the record is for highest cheese pull. This is defined as when a person dips their chip into a vessel of cheese and then pulls it out to be consumed. Cheese pulls are a viral thing on TikTok, having been viewed more than 1.5 billion times. Well, to coincide with National Guacamole Day on September 16 (not sure how cheese fits into that, but we’ll go with it), Doritos set about to do the cheese pull of cheese pulls.
According to the Toronto Sun, on September 15th in England, a helicopter crew hoisted a giant 1.2-metre-wide nacho chip into the air and carefully dipped it into a special heated cheese blend inside a 4.2-metre replica of a nacho platter and then stretched the cheese for 15 metres without breaking the string.
As cool as this record for highest cheese pull is, it only makes me wonder, is some redneck reading this now? Is he saying to his friends, “Hey y’all, we got this.” How long will it be before someone attempts to break this record?
As long as there are bars, there will be dreams like this.
30 Snacks and Other Food Items Banned in America
Food is an important part of defining culture, and the United States is no different. A country of seemingly endless gastronomic choices, the United States features local favorites like collard greens and cornbread as well as boxed macaroni and cheese. Despite this, some foods are practically impossible to find in the United States because they’re on the banned food list. But believe it or not, the United States doesn’t allow certain foods consumed around the world.
FDA sometimes prevents foods from crossing the border, but sometimes state laws or public opinion must intervene. Stacker has compiled a list of foods and beverages that have either been banned across the entire country, by certain states, or in schools. In some cases, these bans have made it nearly impossible to find these foods in the U.S.—at least not in the form in which they’re available throughout the rest of the world. From tasty cheeses to the famed Scottish dish haggis, these 30 foods aren’t welcome in America.
