Giant Centennial Birthday Cake, Honolulu, HI
The town of Honolulu, Hawaii recently celebrated its Centenary in Supersized Style! They created a cake able to serve 10,000 people. It was made up of 108 sheet cakes, weighed over 1000 lb's, and is believed to be the biggest cake ever made in Honolulu!
In celebration of the City of Honolulu's centennial, a giant cake was prepared and displayed at Honolulu Hale. It serves 10,000 people, one of whom was my 8-year-old daughter Katie, interviewed in this KITV segment from Sunday, July 2, 2006
World's Largest Pasta, 7876 lb's!
What do you do when you've got literally a spare truckload of Pasta and a whole heap of spare time? Make the World's Largest Pasta of course! These guys made one, and made it big. 7876 lb's to be exact. And if the spectacle of organizing this huge feat wasn't enough, someone decided to get married... in it... yes, in the pasta. Don't ask, I've got no idea why either...

Portion Distortion Interactive Quiz!
We here at SupersizedMeals.com care about your health... that's why today we're going to do a little bit of edumacation. It's the Portion Distortion Interactive Quiz! How much have food portions changed over the last 20 years? Soda's used to come in bottles, now they come in buckets. And what about those single patty cheeseburgers, bah, too small!

Food Battle Club - Kobayashi vs Akasaka
Oh how I love Japanese game shows... This one is particularly awesome. Back in 2001, a very young looking Takeru Kobayashi (famed Nathans Famous Hot Dog Eating Champion) is put up against "Queen"Akasaka to see who can eat the most Sushi and Gyoza. On what looks to be at least a 50 ft buffet table, this "Street Fighter" style clip has the two racing against each other to see who can get to the finish first. Giant Shirota also makes a very trendy appearance, looking somewhat amazed at Kobayashi's performance!

No $3900 meal for Kanye West
reported last week that Kanye West had ordered a curry from British Raj's
at a total cost of $3900 (and that didn't include the travel cost of the chef!). Turns out that Kanye wasn't in New York during that week, and his publicist denied the claim that he'd ordered the meal. The meal was ordered though and sent to New York, so someone ate well that day! Poor Kanye, no curry for you!
• Restaurant said curry is headed from UK to New York
• Restaurant said Raw Soul music company is paying bill
• Publicist says West won't even be in New York

They unveiled a cake standing at least a few stories high, the base recreating the store and its employees, with six tiers built on top of it. From the pics, it looks to be about 40ft high! Happy anniversary!
The Wonder Pizza - Pizza Vending Machine
Could this be the best vending machine ever invented? I think so. Unless you're lucky enough to have a pizza store open at 3am, this might be the next best alternative. 90 second pizza... mmmm...

There are 3 different pizzas available in each machine at one time. Delicious Connie’s Pizza of Chicago is featured in all WonderPizza Kiosks. 5 years and 6 million dollars of R&D went into this design and subsequent manufacture of WONDERPIZZA of Italy and the product is now beginning worldwide distribution.
Ban McDonald's, says Charles
Looks like the Prince doesn't like his dose of Big Mac's. On a recent trip to the UAE, Prince Charles said, "Have you got anywhere with McDonald's? Have you tried getting it banned? That's the key." I wonder what his approach to solving the alcohol problems in the UK would be? I bet pub owners can't wait for that one! What do you think about McBashing, or junk food bashing in general?

PRINCE Charles has said banning McDonald's is the "key" to improving health and fitness, while on a visit to a healthy eating program in the Middle East. While on an official tour in the United Arab Emirates, Charles inspected the Imperial College London Diabetes Centre in Abu Dhabi, which was launching a public awareness campaign on nutrition. During the visit, he asked a nutritionist: "Have you got anywhere with McDonald's? Have you tried getting it banned? That's the key." McDonald's has said it is "disappointed" by the prince's comments, which it has called out of date.
