He has now achieved three ice cream-related World Records.

Last week, Dimitri Panciera landed the Guinness World Record for “Most ice-cream scoops balanced on a cone” with 121 scoops of ice cream on a single cone at the Forno di Zoldo’s annual Gelatimo ice cream festival in Italy.

The ice cream challenge required that the cone have a diameter no greater than 9.5 centimeters (3.74 inches), and all scoops must balance and stand for a minimum of 10 seconds, according to the Guinness World Records website.

Panciera said he achieved the title by using local ice cream from Val di Zoldo, which uses almost 100-year-old machinery to produce the artisanal frozen dessert.


The Italian man is considered a legend in the ice cream world, as he has now set three ice-cream-related World Records; two for the most scoops on a single cone and one for the world’s largest ice cream scoop, according to UPI. The record-breaking ice cream scoop measured 6 feet and 4.7 inches long, 1 foot and 10.8 inches wide, and 6.6 inches deep.
