Asdas Barnstaple store may have just cooked the worlds biggest Easter biscuit. The Barnstaple store teamed up with Falmouth-based bakers WC Rowe to tackle the monster biscuit, which has a whopping 31 inch (79cm) diameter. The treat is more than five times the size of a regular Easter biscuit, meaning it may well have baked its way into the record books. It comes days after Asdas Bodmin store claimed to have produced the worlds biggest Easter biscuit themselves. But the Bodmin bake 26 inches in diameter was eclipsed by their North Devon rivals. Andy Felix, store manager at Asda Barnstaple, said: We got wind of the Easter biscuit world record being set by Bodmin and thought a bit of healthy competition couldnt hurt. The Easter biscuit is very popular in this part of the country and we take our traditions very seriously, so obviously wanted the world biggest Easter biscuit title for ourselves. We couldnt be happier that weve made the bigger biscuit thats just the way the cookie crumbles Asda Bodmin! Originating from the West Country, Easter biscuits are often used as a gift given to guests on Easter Sunday. Made from flour, butter, egg yolk, baking powder and sugar, the lightly-spiced currant biscuits are often decorated by children in the run up to Easter. Both record-breaking biscuits were made by Rowes Cornish Bakers, who supply over 100 Asda stores across the West Country, East Coast and Cornwall with their Easter biscuits.
