STORY: Location: Mexico City

This ‘torta’ sandwich in Mexico has broken two world records

At 242.7 feet, it’s the longest one ever made

It was also assembled at record speed: 2:09 mins

A torta is bigger than a regular sandwich

and can be made from a variety of products

Each section of the record-breaking torta had a different flavor

each representing the different cooks' signature styles

“Tortas mean everything! They mean love, they mean getting together. At least in my house we cook tortas when the family is together and we all put our favorite ingredients in them.”
