We show in this note that in the forcing extension by $\mathrm {Add}(\omega ,\beth _{\omega })$, the following Ramsey property holds: for any $r\in \omega $ and any $f: \mathbb {R}\to r$, there exists an infinite $X\subset \mathbb {R}$ such that $X+X$ is monochromatic under $f$. We also show the Ramsey statement above is true in $\mathrm {ZFC}$ when $r=2$. This answers two questions of Komjáth et al. (2019).
