Ten Of The Largest Food Items From Around The World

We all enjoy seeing food the size of SUVs. And yes, there was a sigh of relief when I noticed that the US wasn’t the only one to set food records of massive proportions. This list takes local food challenges to the next level with these behemoth, hellacious works of art. We dare you to clean your plate.

Largest S’more

Who: Deer Run Camping Resort

What: 121.11 Kilograms

You said gimme some more, and they delivered. At a mere 267 pounds, this campfire delight could probably feed all of the Girl Scouts across America. In Gardners, Pennsylvania 104 volunteers helped create this behemoth. Bask in all its glory.

 

Largest Hamburger Commercially Available

Most Expensive Food

But really? Hold the cheese? OK, but we are still very impressed. This enormous burger could make an appearance at your next Super Bowl party, just make sure to give the restaurant 48 hours notice.

Largest Gluten-Free Pizza

Who: Dovilio Nardi

What: 1261.65 Square Metre(s)

Where: Italy

Do you think you could eat this whole thing guilt free? Would you get a t-shirt? Prepared by Dovilio Nardi, Andrea Mannocchi, Marco Nardi, Matteo Nardi and Matteo Giannotte, this pizza has a bigger plan. This pizza was named Ottavia after the first Roman emperor Octavian Augustus. The purpose of this pie was to spread the message to the world about the importance of health conscious food choices … and this pizza party just got serious.

 

Largest Chocolate Truffle

Largest Chocolate Truffle

Who: Mirco Della Vecchia

What: 1,768 pounds

Where: Italy

The largest chocolate truffle weighed in at 1,768 pounds of pure gluttony. Dark chocolate, Amarena cherries, cream and a dream made this creation come to life. Now this is how you get chocolate wasted.

 

Largest Fruit Cobbler

Who: Hampton Inn of Ruston

What: 2,251 pounds

Where: United States

What does one do with 819 pounds of peaches, 454 pounds of sugar and 312 pounds of butter?  Make a colossal peach cobbler for the Annual Louisiana Peach Festival in Ruston, Louisiana.

Opa! The largest falafel weighed in at 164.80 pounds and was prepared by ten chefs using the traditional recipe of chickpeas, parsley, and coriander with mixed spices. It took 25 minutes to deep fry this bad boy and was later served to 600 hotel guests. I only hope they had enough tzatziki for everyone.

 

Largest Crab Cake 

Largest Crab Cake

Who: Handy International Incorporated

What: 300 pounds

Where: United States

The largest crab cake weighed in at 300 pounds of fresh Maryland blue crab meat. I’d imagine that anyone allergic to shellfish were evacuated from the city leading up to the event. And that EpiPens were in everyone’s goodie bags.

Guinness World Record $450 Pizza Sold in Canada

The Guinness World Record for most expensive pizza sold has been shattered. If you’ve ever cried inside when paying for a $25 meat lover’s pizza, then a $450 pizza would damage your pride, ego and bank account.

Chef Gordon Ramsey is going to have to step aside with his puny $178 pizza which held the previous record, or step up his game and make a $500 pizza if he wants his record back.

The record-breaking pizza comes from our neighbors up north. Yup, Canada. Steveston Pizza Company, owned by Nader Hatami is the seller of the $450 “C6“ pizza, but the buyer was not revealed.

The bank-breaking pie consists of lobster thermidor, Alaskan black cod and a side of Russian osetra caviar.

If you’re on a budget, the restaurant also has a cheaper version of the pizza for $120 that is topped with roasted garlic, Icelandic scampi, smoked steelhead and lobster ratatouille. If your budget happens to be in an even lower range than that, they do offer your run-of-the-mill pizza starting at $14.

Hatami said the pizza was made to make a statement. That is an expensive statement that I’m sure all pizza lovers wish they could partake in.
