Did you know the Guinness World Records™ title for the fastest time to sort 30 Smarties using chopsticks is only 30.34 seconds? This record was achieved by Silvio Sabba 2016.

Here’s the deal...

Anyone, anywhere can be a record-breaker. To show you how *cough* easy it can be, we’ve sent you some items to take your best shot at beating Silvio’s time!

The challenge is simple, sort 30 smarties into their respective color group using chopsticks. This challenge will show you how science can play an important role in achieving the amazing (or the OFFICIALLY AMAZING™).


Our team has been practicing for this day.  We are challenging you and your team to take your best shot at beating our time! We’ve taken a video which you can see at our below so you know what you are up against.

Check out the video below to learn how science can help refine your Smarties sorting skills and unlock your record-breaking abilities.
