CHANDLER, AZ — Bashas has broken a very sweet world record.

The Arizona-based grocery chain set the Guinness World Record for the "largest doughnut mosaic."

Bashas' officials say they started preparing Monday for the world record attempt by cutting, frying and packaging the thousands of donuts they used.

The record attempt took place at Basha High School in Chandler. They used 14,000 doughnuts to make a 900-square-foot mosaic of the Bashas' 90th anniversary logo.

The old record was set in 2012, and it featured more than 7,000 donuts and made a 512-square-foot mosaic.

It's all a part of the chain's 90-day celebration of its 90th anniversary in business. Bashas' will also be giving away store gift cards, performing acts of kindness, and giving a charity selected by their shoppers a total of $50,000.
