Fastest Chip Wrapper

Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the Most portions of fish and chips sold in eight hours, set by Harry Ramsdens fish-and-chip shop in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, who sold and served a record 12,105 portions of fish and chips on 5 April 1996.
The Cardiff takeaway celebrated its 50th anniversary by selling chips at just 5p a portion – and there were queues around the block.
The Albany Fish Bar in Roath decided to offer the whopping discount in order to celebrate its golden anniversary, with a portion of chips costing a shilling when it first opened.
Hundreds of customers gathered on Albany Road to make the most of the deal, with all proceeds and donations going towards Cancer Research UK.
