Holy Guacamole!

The beloved, creamy, avocado side dish has cult-like fans – more so than any other food. The center focus of memes everywhere, the “extra-ness” of guac is the food of the millennial generation. But how much guac is too much?

The answer to that question doesn’t exist to the people of Concepcion de Buenos Aires. With the help of over 600 student chefs and 400 civilians of the rural town, the city now holds the Guinness World Record for the most guacamole made in one session at a whopping three tons of it the yummy green dip serving thousands of people.

Though some may think the massive guacamole dish is a waste, we’re sure it went to good use and made some pretty happy tummies. If you want to make your Thursday just as happy, check out these events going down today.
