There seems to be a record-breaking feat just about everything these days. Who knew there was a world record making the tallest stack M&Ms? Well, there is, and the record has been broken. British civil engineer Will Cutbill, 23, attempted the balance-defying challenge while trying to stave the boredom being cooped up a COVID lockdown. He used all his architectural and design skills, with a dose physics know-how, to stack a pile of the multi-colored button-shaped chocolates five M&Ms high. Many people might think that is a beatable record but Mr Cutbill challenged anybody to try and better his balancing accomplishment.
Mr Cutbill spoke why he set to break the M&M stacking record. He said: "I've had a lifelong ambition to break a Guinness World Records title. I've always wanted one. I've bought the book every year and have always dreamed of one day reading my name it." He said he got the idea while he was partaking his favourite chocolaty confection the lockdown. He was curious to know how many the chocolates he could put top of each other. He said: "It takes time, but if you stick it, you will find a way to do it." He added: "This has inspired me. I want to let my creative juices flow and see what else I may be good and then attack it with the same determination I did here."
