Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the tallest cookie tower; it measured 1.83 m (6 ft 1/8 in) tall and was constructed by the Girl Scouts of Nassau County (USA) at the Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City, New York, USA.
The event took place in the Bright School gymnasium in front of hundreds of school staff, students, parents and volunteers. The record-breaking mosaic measured 1,358.51 sq. feet, more than triple the previous Guinness wold record held by Oreo® (mosaic = giant rectangular design made up cookies that must all touch).
Once disassembled, the Moon Pies were bagged and donated to The Chattanooga Food Bank and other local non-profits.
"We are so excited to have achieved what will be for most of us a once-in-a-lifetime feat," said Kim Brown, Bright School's Director of Advancement.
"We wanted to do something memorable in honor of Bright School's 100thbirthday, and what better way to celebrate Bright School and Chattanooga than with 16,000 Moon Pies?
