Tyre has officially set a new Guinness World Record by preparing the a 2.35 meter long fruit cocktail weighting over a ton. The aim is to boost the local economy and kick off their shopping and tourism festival.

I read the news on the plane and wanted to see how the cocktail would look like and whether people would be able to eat it or not. Given that there’s probably 50 kilos of Ashta on top, I don’t think anyone would dare eat from that cocktail and it will all go to waste.

This being said, I don’t see the point from this record and how it will serve to boost the local economy. Do you really think tourists & locals will start flocking to Tyre once they hear you’re making a huge fruit cocktail?
