The makers of the Corn Nuts brand are now an official GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title holder. On Aug. 30 at the Charro Association Arena in San Antonio, TX, the makers of the Corn Nuts brand set a new record for largest piñata, a massive display filled with Corn Nuts products in honor of the brand’s latest flavor innovation: Corn Nuts Mexican Street Corn.
Inspired by elotes, a classic Mexican corn snack roasted and served right on the cob, the corn-shaped structure — which measured 6.161 meters wide, 18.015 meters long and 30.448 meters tall — was designed by the Masa Collective and ACES HIGH in celebration of this exciting new flavor from the Corn Nuts brand.
“Our team wanted to find a way to pay homage to the delicious elotes that inspired our newest innovation, Mexican Street Corn,” said Robbie Koons, Corn Nuts Senior Brand Manager. “There’s no better way to celebrate than with a giant elote piñata and a brand-new record!”
An adjudicator from GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS presented the Corn Nuts brand team with its official certificate at the event, recognizing the achievement of constructing the world’s largest-ever piñata. Overtaking the record set by M&M’S in 2011, the piñata will be included in GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS family moving forward.
Corn Nuts products are available at convenience and grocery stores nationwide. For more information on the Corn Nuts brand, including how the piñata was created and came to be, nutritional information and where to buy, visit Corn Nuts.
