World Record Fruit Salad Made In A Swimming Pool

UMass breaks Guinness World Record for largest fruit salad: 15,291 pounds in a swimming pool

From Mass Live

Swimming pools are not always used for just swimming.  Perhaps you’ve heard of the empty swimming pools that are converted into skating rinks for the winter months.  

Additionally, world records are usually reserved for olympic swimmers in pools, but not this world record. According to this post from Mass Live, the world record for the largest fruit salad ever assembled was actually prepared in a swimming pool.  Looks delicious, don’t you think?

Here is an excerpt from the post:

 AMHERST — For the fourth year in a row, the University of Massachusetts has entered the Guinness World Records, this time for the largest fruit salad.

About 500 volunteers and staff, cut, pitted and diced 15,291 pounds of fruit, shattering the 11,192-pound fruit salad set by McGill University in Montreal last year.

The record-breaking success was part of the annual welcome back barbecue at the Haigis Mall.

UMass has set records for the world’s largest, seafood stew, stir-fry and sushi roll.
