Temple University Breaks Peanut Butter and Jelly Guinness World Record

It was "Peanut Butter Jelly Time" at Temple University Monday as students broke a record.

More than 1,100 volunteers broke the Guinness World Record for most peanut butter and jelly sandwiches made in one hour. The previous record is 39,303 sandwiches, but Temple students managed to make 49,100 in an hour.

All of the sandwiches will be donated to more than 15 food banks and shelters throughout Philadelphia.

The volunteers used 4,475 pounds of peanut butter, 3,800 pounds of jelly, 1,875 loaves of bread, 45,000 plastic bags, 1,000 boxes, 3,000 knives, 3,00 spoons, 3,000 pairs of gloves and 350 table cloths to complete the task.
