Ludington to make an ice cream dessert that's half a mile long

It’s that time of year again. Long lines are starting to form outside of all those favorite ice cream shops.

But one line might be longer than the others this weekend – half a mile long, that is.

Thousands of people are expected in Ludington Saturday. The town will try to set a Guinness World Record for longest ice cream dessert, using ice cream from Ludington’s House of Flavors.

Barry Neal is from House of Flavors and is coordinating the event. To make this happen, he says House of Flavors will use 900 gallons of ice cream – that’s between 15,000 and 18,000 scoops, 800 pounds of chocolate syrup, 600 cans of whipped cream and over 2,000 cherries.

“Being in the ice cream business is a very sweet thing to do, so it’s fun,” Neal said.
