Giant Sarnie at Wild Bean Cafe
Ok, ok, so it's not a real sandwich, but one can dream, can't they? :)
World's Largest Popcorn Ball
Take a whole lotta popcorn (910lbs), a whole lotta sugar (1500lbs), a whole lotta syrup (690lbs) and way too much spare time and what do you get? The worlds largest popcorn ball, weighing in at 3100 pounds!
Those fun loving people in Sac City are at it again. Forty-four volunteers and five staff members of Noble Popcorn Farms built a popcorn ball that weighed 3,100 pounds on Sat., June 12th to promote popcorn and to create a tourism attraction for the community as it heads into its Sesquicentennial celebration in 2005. The ball surpasses the old Guinness Book of World Records of 2,377 pounds set in September of 1995.
Fatal Restaurant, Budapest
They sure know how to do their schnitzel's overseas! Fatal Restaurant, despite the name, makes a killing on selling these huge schnitzels. Apparently they're made from 4 "normal" sized ones. They also make a bunch of other massive meals as well.
Giant Biscuit on show in Zhongshan
This must've needed one heck of an oven!
The super biscuit, over 500 kg in weight, is biggest one ever made in Zhongshan. The biscuit is displayed in opening ceremony of the Auto Show held in Xingzhong Stadium, Zhongshan, attracting thousands of audience.
Grandpa Al and his Giant Cake, Harold's New York Deli, NJ
Found this one while clicking around flickr, it's Grandpa Al and his Giant Cake (sounds like a kids story book!). I have to say that this is a small engineering feat, how do they get it to stand up like that? And it's not like this is a one-off creation either. Apparently Harold's Deli specializes in giant meals!
Harold's is a large restaurant serving enormous portions of food to enormous people (and regular size people, too). It is for this reason, we believe, that Harold's sometimes doesn't get the respect it so well deserves. It would be natural to assume that a restaurant whose schtick is to serve comically large servings of food would not devote much attention to the quality of that food. That assumption, at Harold's, couldn’t be more wrong
Giant Cadbury Creme Egg
What better way to celebrate Easter than to make a Supersized Cadbury Creme Egg!! How do you do it? All you need is a box of 48 Cadbury Creme Eggs, a large well known brand easter egg, and you're almost done! Happy Easter everyone!
Hi, this is how I spent Good Friday 2004... Ever thought those big Cream Egg Easter eggs were a bit of a cheat as they were always hollow and not filled with fondanty goodness like the normal Cream Eggs? Well, I'd had enough of this, so decided to make my own...
World's Largest Burrito at Rengstorff Park
One of our readers Eaton (who sent in the story about the 12-pound Canadian Emperor Crab
) sent this one in. Circa 1997, this is the earliest Supersized Meal we have on record. The challenge? To conquer the Guinness World Record for the World's Largest Burrito.
I woke up Saturday morning and checked my burrito horoscope. "Today is a good day for a burrito," it said. It always says that. Funny thing is, it's always right. Today was a good day for a burrito; in fact, it was a great day for a burrito. To celebrate Cinco de Mayo, La Costeña, the famed taqueria of the South Bay, decided to make the world's largest.
'Most expensive sandwich' on sale
While 500g (21oz.) is still a respectable size for a large sandwich, it's the price tag that tips this one over the scales. This is said to be the worlds most expensive sandwich. Priced at 85 pounds (~ US$150), this sandwich has nothing but the finest (and most expensive) ingredients available
Hungry shoppers are being offered the chance to eat a gourmet sandwich, but the £85 price tag might be too much for some to swallow. The McDonald sandwich - named after its creator Scott McDonald, the chef at London department store Selfridges - is said to be the world's most expensive. Its cost is down to the Wagyu beef that makes up most of the filling, packed in a 24-hour fermented sour dough bread.
The 50lb Mount Olympus Burger, Clinton Station Diner, NJ
I've been trying to find these photos for a while, and found Trencherwomen
had written up a story about it a while ago! Turns out local radio station NJ1015 had a competition to see whether 5 guys could knock this monster off by themselves. Although a valiant effort, they didn't quite make it...
A "Burger with the lot", Cairns, Australia
Found this one on flickr. A towering works burger with 3 bamboo sticks about 30cm long to hold it all together! How much for this one? Only $5.00!! There's a great story that goes along with it too
...The picture above is the Burger with the Lot and very much needed the three bamboo sticks measuring about 30cm to support this towering mass of food. Stuart had to turn his head to a 90 degree angle to even begin to eat this monster and was forced to take numerous bites to get the full impact....
