Who doesn't love food? It’s obviously necessary to our existence but in today’s society food has far surpassed its original intention of sustenance. From turning food into an art form to instagraming your delicious berry oatmeal in its mason jar, food has taken on new meanings in today’s age.
Restaurants, take-out venues, food trucks, canteens, vending machines are everywhere you turn, and the variety of foods that we are now exposed to has grown exponentially in the last few decades. So when someone makes a food we all enjoy and love in an extreme size, it’s only natural to be fascinated and yes extremely hungry. Take a look at some of the biggest, most delicious, mouthwatering foods made in the world as verified by the Guinness Book of World Records.
10 Biggest Ice-cream Scoop
Yes…this exists. Dairy lovers beware, the bar has just been raised. Kemps Diary set the record for the world’s biggest ice cream scoop in Wisconsin (USA) at the Cedarburg Strawberry Festival last year.
9 World Largest Peanut Butter Cup
Vermont (USA) candy shop owner Nick Monte took on the delicious task of making the world’s largest peanut butter cup in 2013 – and he did just that. Combining more than 229 pounds of chocolate and peanut butter, Nick managed to create the incredibly large confection.
8 Largest Waffle
Mmmm. Breakfast, the most important meal of that day. What better to have for breakfast than waffles? A REALLY big waffle! The largest waffle in the world weighs in at staggering 50kg (110 lb 3.68 oz) and was created by Stichting Gouda Oogst in the Netherlands in 2013.
7 Largest Chocolate Coin
6 Largest Hotdog Commercially Available
When it comes to food, it’s safe to say that the hotdog is the American dream above all other takeaway foods. Picture an average hotdog and multiply it by 40. That’s what Gorilla Tango Novelty Meats CEO and ‘Big Hot Dog’ inventor Dan Abbate came up with back in March 2011, creating the Largest Hotdog commercially available in the world, as recognized by the Guinness World Records.
5 World’s Largest Round Pizza
Fittingly the title for the world’s largest round pizza was reclaimed by the Italians in 2012 (previously set in South Africa in 1990 where it was held for 22 years). The margherita 100% gluten-free pizza, measured in at 40m (131ft) in diameter and used a mammoth 9,000kg (19,841lbs) of flour.
If that sounds like a whole lot of flour, then have a look at the quantities of the other ingredients. 4536kgs (10,000lbs) of tomato sauce, 3992kgs (8,800lbs) of mozzarella cheese, 675kgs (1,488lbs) of margarine, 250kgs (551lbs) of rock salt, 100kgs (220lbs) of lettuce and 25kgs (55lbs) of vinegar.
4 Largest Samosa
The largest vegetable samosa ever made comes in at a delectable 110.8kg (244lbs 4oz) and was created by Bradford College in partnership with award winning restaurant Prashad, in the United Kingdom back in 2012.
3 Longest Sandwich
In 2011, 3 teams consisting of 136 people prepared and cooked the world’s largest sandwich with the help of 639 participants who helped fill it.
The delicious creation, created in Lebanon, weighed in at a whopping 557kg (1227lbs) and measured 735m (2,411ft) long. Taking almost a whole day to make, the sandwich required four custom made movable ovens to be created in order to bake one long continuous piece of bread. Consisting of chicken breast, lettuce, tomato, pickles, mayonnaise, red vinegar, salt, mustard, white pepper, lemon juice, kammoun spices and coriander, this gourmet sandwich sure went a ‘long’ way.
2 Largest Bowl of Porridge
1 Tallest Drinking Glass Fountain
Surely this would have to go hand in hand with the world’s biggest party…and the Belgium’s sure know how to get a party started. Back in 2008, Luuk Broos and his team created a champagne fountain containing 43,680 glasses, creating 63 storeys…that’s a lot of champagne glasses!
Thinking about the delicate nature of such a mammoth task, the environment in which the tower is composed would be a massive consideration. Where do you start such a task? In a shopping center of course! The tower was constructed in the Shopping Center Wijnegem, Belgium.
