The Guinness World Record for the Longest french fry was a nearly 24-inch french fry from an Arby's in South Carolina.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest stir-fry, which weighed 1,818.91 kg (4,010 lb) and was achieved by the University of Massachusetts Dining Services in Amherst, Massachusetts, USA.
"Ordered a large fry from arby's and that's exactly what I got is one large fry." A curly fry she's measured to be 38 inches long, which is a world curly fry record.
"This experience has been 'fry-tastic' and I'm excited about the opportunity to share my story," said Medford through an Arby's PR rep.
"Before this, the World Record Academy claimed two buffalo men held the world record with a 34 inch fry. At the time, that shattered the previous Guiness mark of 24 inches," WLOS ABC 13 reported.
An Arby's spokeswoman said the restaurant chain does have a standard "cut size" for its curly fries, but not for the length. "Typically, the packaging, transportation and cooking process naturally breaks up the fries into smaller pieces, but not always," the spokeswoman said.
