A judge from Guinness World Records has certified that a 400ft baguette baked at the Milan Expo 2015 World’s Fair is the longest ever made. Some 60 French and Italian bakers worked for nearly seven hours on Sunday to bake the baguette, moving a specially designed portable oven along its length.The process was sponsored by Nutella:
The Italian maker of Nutella, Ferrero, backed the enterprise to beat the 111-meter (364-foot) record held by a French supermarket chain. Once certified as a record-breaker, the baguette was cut and smeared with Nutella to share with the hundreds of Expo goers who celebrated the record.

It was at least the fourth world record declared during the six-month Expo, which closes Oct. 31, including the longest pizza at 1.5954 kilometers, or nearly a mile long.
