On Saturday, Voodoo Doughnuts of Portland, Oregon set a new record for the biggest box of doughnuts, creating a 7x7x5 pink box filled with 666 pounds of the delicious pastries in order to win recognition in the Guinness Book of World Records.
There were 3,880 doughnuts placed in the box to make it reach its devilish weight, which was revealed on Portland's Hawthorne Bridge during an event called Brunch on the Bridge. Mayor Sam Adams, a notary and a scale master were all on hand to verify that the bakery had reached the world record.
"I think we must have set another record when we handed out 666 pounds of doughnuts in just 45 minutes," Tres Shannon, who owns Voodoo Doughnuts along with Kenneth "Cat Daddy" Pogson, told NBC Bites. "It was a good way to give back to the city of Portland, which has been pretty good to us over the years."
The giant box contained 380 smaller boxes filled with glazed donuts arranged into a pyramid. The owners than piled on an assortment of their signature creations, such as apple fritters and their Fruit Loop-crusted Loop doughnut.
Although the previous record holder's doughnut box only weighed 287 pounds, Shannon said the shop decided to go big with its creation to fit in with its store creation to fit in with its voodoo theme.
"The current record is a little less than 333 pounds, so we just decided to double it to 666 pounds," Shannon said.
Voodoo is waiting for official certification from Guinness World Records to confirm its accomplishment.
