Largest number of people eating giant canned stinky tofu set world record

Taipei, Nov. 20 (CNA) A total of 1,229 people braved the heavy rain and gathered in Taipei earlier this weekend to set a world record for the largest number of people to ever eat a large-size canned stinky tofu.


The can of stinky tofu, 89 centimeters high and 151 cm in diameter and weighing 1,227 kilograms, also set a world record for being the largest of its kind in history.

Seyda Subasi-Gemici, an executive from the Britain-based Guinness World Records, attended the event to certify the two new world records, according to organizers.

"Stinky tofu tastes so delicious. It isn't stinky at all," said Edita Garskaite of Lithuania, who attended the event with her friend.

Tianmu Marketplace Development Association Chairwoman Tang Di said the event was held in Tianmu, long a preferred neighborhood for foreign residents, to improve its reputation among foreign visitors.
