Carvel's Worlds Largest Ice Cream Cake
To celebrate their 70th birthday, Carvel created the Worlds Largest Ice Cream Cake! The cake weighed 12,096 pounds, ice cream headache anyone?
NEW YORK, NY (MAY 25) – Carvel Corporation, the nation’s first retail ice cream franchise, built the world’s largest ice cream cake today, breaking the world’s previous record, according to Keely Hopkins, official representation of The Guinness Book of World Records™. Weighing in at 12,096 pounds, the cake took 75 minutes and 54 people to build and assemble. It was 19 ft long, nine ft wide, and two feet high.
The "Mega Mel Burger", Mel's Country Cafe, Tomball, TX
For ages I've been trying to figure out where the burger featured in this earlier article
originated from. Well, thanks to one of our Forum Posters, Brandon,
I think I may have found the source of this massive burger tower. It's called "The Mega Mel Burger". Here are the stats:
Mel's flagship burger is it's Mega Mel's Burger. This thing is approaching
bovine armageddon status! This thing has 6 - count em' - SIX patties
totaling 1 1/2 pounds of beef - a friggin' pound of bacon - ¼ pound of
cheese - all the vegetables - and a half off coupon for a defibulator. If
you can eat this bad boy in under 2 hours and not "return any of the food
for a refund" during that time - you get your name written on the Mel's Wall
of Fame and you will be forever the envy of binge eaters everywhere! One guy
at this monstocity in 9 minutes!!! I bet that dude had a real bad case of
something that night. Yowser!"
The $99 Burger, DB Bistro Moderne, New York City
If you're going to have a $1000 Sundae
, why not start the meal with a $99 Burger? Using a mix of some of the finest ingredients available, you won't find this burger in a happy meal...
Quality check: Ground sirloin, boned short ribs braised in red wine, foie gras and preserved black truffle on a poppy-seed bun with homemade Parmesan, served with fresh horseradish, tomato confit, tomato, red onions and frisée lettuce. The DB Burger Royale adds black truffles (available mid-December through late March).
Check: DB Burger is $29. DB Burger Royale costs $59; a double-truffle version is $99.
Reality check: If you're gonna overpay, you might as well go all the way
$1000 Sundae, Serendipity, NY
Talk about expensive tastes. This US$1000 Sundae would want to taste pretty good!
I know. It sounds crazy: $1,000 for an ice cream sundae? But, the sundae is The Grand Opulence Sundae from famed Serendipity of New York City and it's made up of the best of the best. According to the restaurant, they sell approximately one a month, so apparently, quite a few people have some money to indulge in such opulence.
Chici Mac, 26 Pattys
Another Mega Mac Mega Champion! This Japanese Mc Creation has 26 all beef pattys. (hold the pickles!) And why they called the second largest one a "Buffalo Berry Mac", I have no idea...
(GoogleTranslated) The [te] with reason, some reason it is to be decided that we challenge to this “YOTTA MAC”. When furthermore it tries inspecting, then, when still there is such a unit on YOTTA, is. When so, if it becomes, only you do, probably will be. With being the case that it is said, being nonstop from here, please enjoy.
Costner's Grill 19.1lb Burger, Easley, SC
Of the big burgers I've seen, this one looks really good. Not sure of the weight though, it says 16lb's on the box, but the write-up says 19.1lbs? Maybe the meat is 16....
Costner's Grill and Entertainment of Easley introduces the new record-breaking hamburger on the Ralph Bristol Show. As of the date these photos were taken, at 19.1 pounds, this is the largest burger on any menu in the U.S.
"brains" and the Full Pounder
Not too many pics, but you get the general idea. Wonder how many calories were in it?
A mate and I took swotvac procrastination to glorious levels tonight. We took the Pounder Challenge. For those that don't know, a Pounder is pretty much 4 Quarter Pounders mashed into one mega burger. So, thats 5 slices of cheese, 4 of meat.
Minimiam (Mini-people in a big food world)
Imagine a chocolate eclair that was 12 ft high? Or maybe climbing a Mt Rum Ball? Digging out a watermelon seed with a crowbar? These are just some of the photos in this set. These guys placed tiny models into food, then got the Macro lens out and took photos. Awesome

Pete and Elda's "The Challenge", Neptune, N.J.
The rules are simple. If you can eat by yourself one extra extra large pie, you get a free T-shirt! Easy!
The Ram Husky Burger Challenge, U of Washington, Seattle
The Ram Husky Burger Challenge consists of a 1lb beef patty burger with all the fixin's. These guys decided to give it a crack after a chat in class. Sounds like a lot of fun, except they didn't quite cook it enough! (and they still did it anyway!)
One day, probably during one of the classes we weren't paying attention in, Chris proposed that we should all go to the Ram in U-Village and try to eat a Husky Burger, which consists of a 1 lbs. beef patty and all the fixins'. Well, unlike most of our ideas, we actually did this one. Little did we know what lied in store...
