Saudi YouTubers break world record for largest virtual iftar

DUBAI: A group of Arab YouTubers in Saudi Arabia have made history for hosting the world’s largest virtual iftar on May 19. 

The content creators —including Iraqi Noor Stars, Saudi-American Omar Hussein, The Saudi Reporters and Saudi Mohamed Moshaya, Anasala Family and Asrar Aref – broke the Guinness World Record for “Most Views for an Iftar YouTube Livestream Globally.”

“A historic day. The moment we broke a Guinness World Record for the largest virtual iftar on YouTube,” wrote one half of The Saudi Reporters Abdulaziz Bakr, alongside a screen recording of the digital iftar. “What we have achieved is because of your help. Because of your views, YouTube was able to donate $250,000 to the UNHCR,” he added.

His brother, and other half of The Saudi Reporters, Abdullah Bakr added “We made history and broke a record in the Guinness World Records. Praise be to God.”

What We Are Eating Today: Dokkan Joze w Loze

Dokkan Joze w Loze is a Saudi brand of caramelized nuts that offers a range of fresh and delicious selections presented and served in a simple yet classy way by Wedd Fayez, a passionate young business owner who was encouraged by her family to start the project in 2018.
Dokkan Joze w Loze offers two main caramelized nuts: Pecan and almonds. Fayez said she uses high-quality raw American pecans and almonds.
The loud crunch that the pecans make in your mouth is really satisfying, as is their caramelization with cinnamon or cardamom. The caramelized nuts with cardamom add a Saudi twist to the famous American sweet snack.
Dokkan Joze w Loze also offers Sokkari dates filled with pecan praline — a smooth mixture of ground sweetened nuts. The pecans caramelized with cinnamon are served in beautifully ornamented
colored bowls, jars and boxes, and are suitable for Ramadan gifts and Eid treats.
For the health-conscious, Dokkan Joze w Loze offers two sugar- and salt-free flavors of sweetened and rosemary almonds.
It also offers customized pecan cake, and a Hijazi traditional mix for the famous Islamic hot drink called Talbinah, made mainly of organic healthy ingredients such as honey, milk, barley flour and ground almond.
