 2013 World Record – 5721 Sandwiches in 30 Minutes by Pine View School

488 Pine View School students who had fun with sticky WOWBUTTER and jelly, made 5,721 sandwiches in 30 minutes.  They unofficially broke the previous record of 2,706 in an hour, and achieved a 2013 world record.



Major sponsors of the 2013 World Record event

Rotary Club of Sarasota Sunrise, Wal-Mart’s, Sam’s Club, WOWBUTTER Foods and several private donors. The event was hosted by the Pine View Interact Club.


Amount of items used to make the 5,721 Sandwiches

sandwiches68 tables

488 students

130 jars of 4.41LB WOWBUTTER

500Ib of jelly

More than 10,000 slices of bread

Students at Pine View School were aware of some people having allergies to peanut butter, therefore, they made soy based sandwiches, and all these sandwiches will be donated to four local food banks in the fight against hunger.


Important specific rules by Guinness for the Sandwiches:

Bread slices must be covered with WOWBUTTER on each side and jelly in the middle.

Bread slices must be placed on top of each other so that sandwich is neat.

The Witnesses will be checking and counting each sandwich after it is made.  Any sandwich not up to Guinness standards will be discounted.

Continue to make sandwiches until supplies run out or the whistle sounds to stop.

Important Timers and Independent Witnesses for the 2013 World Record event:

No Guinness representatives attended the event .The following were the important timers and independent witnesses who have taken time from their busy schedule to help inspect and count the sandwiches, as well as made sure their efforts met all the organization’s standards. The Interact Act Club used 4 cameras to film the entire process as evidence.

Beverly Girard, Director of Nutrition and Food Services, Sarasota County Schools

Christine Robinson, County Commissioner

Herb Jones, Board of Directors, Sarasota Military Academy

Jane Goodwin, Sarasota County School Board

Logan Malone, Retired Rear Admiral

Steve DeMarsh, Sarasota County Attorney

Terri Ann Koehler, Official Timekeeper

Tom Knight, County Sheriff

Wendy Deming, Exec Director of the Gulfcoast Foundation

Yolanda Mancha, Director for Catholic Youth Development


Reasons for the 2013 World Record event by Pine View School:

Tell the public what they can do for its local community and inspire them to do the same.

Chose a service oriented World Record to give back to local community

To raise donations to cover cost of the event plus any costs over and above that would go to their global project

Have fun to work together as a team and create a historic event before school ends.


What I learned from this event?

Take the challenge to learn, to do, and inspire others - especially those who lack of motivation.  I am proud of all the students and the project leader – Jeremy Kemp, 12th grade student of Pine View School.  Congratulations!

Hi Roy, WOWBUTTER is a soy based product tastes and looks like peanut butter.
