World record set in Cheddar Gorge for highest cheese pull
The highest cheese pull – recorded at Cheddar Gorge
Cheese-pulling is the latest TikTok trend but this takes it to new heights – literally.
A world record for the highest-ever cheese pull has just been set after a 4ft-wide nacho was dipped into a bowl of melted cheese and stretched 49ft by a helicopter.
The un-brie-lievable stunt took place at Cheddar Gorge in Somerset and involved more than a month of planning with food boffins, cheese scientists, and social media star Sam Thompson.
A special blend of 120kg of cheddar and mozzarella was poured into a pot which was nestled into a replica mound of nacho chips measuring 16ft x 14ft.
This was heated to the perfect temperature using induction hobs before the chopper lowered the giant nacho into the cheese and stretched it vertically by 49ft.
Cheese pulls have become a viral trend on TikTok, with stretchy clips receiving more than 1.5 billion views to date.
The stunt was organised by Doritos Dippers to mark National Guacamole Day on Saturday (16/09/23).
Doritos also commissioned research of 2,000 adults which found that 27 percent have tried a cheese pull themselves.
The poll also revealed one in three (33 percent) Brits feel that soggy nachos are one of the most disappointing food-fails to experience at a party, and one of the nation’s top culinary ‘icks’.
Rob Pothier, senior marketing manager for the tortilla chip creators, said: “This is nacho everyday stunt, this is a Doritos world record to celebrate National Guacamole Day.
“The day may not be celebrated by everyone, but this is our cup final, our Christmas and our New Year rolled into one.
“The cheese pull was an epic display of Doritos taking nachos to the next level. This is as gouda as it gets.”
Other food icks that put Brits off eating include cutlery with dried food stuck to it (32 percent) and burned pizza (12 percent).
While 15 percent feel grossed out when they’re served warm drinks, like beer or wine, that should be cold.
Additionally, the study revealed 18 percent would rather see a perfect nacho chip invented than for a home nation to win a football cup final.
