Love big burgers? Take a bite out of this: In July of 2011, Juicy's LLC set the world record for the largest hamburger ever - a whopping 777 pounds. Yep, lucky 7's all the way around. This Juicy's Outlaw Burger was served up at the Alameda County Fair in California. It featured, get this: 600 pounds of beef and a 110-pound bun. Yes, 110 pounds - a small person - for just the bun! And the fixings included 12 pounds of pickles, 30 pounds of lettuce and 20 pounds of onions (phew).
Biggest Cup of Coffee
The next time you get one of those fancy Venti coffee drinks at Starbucks and wonder, 'Am I drinking too much caffeine?' - don't. Your Venti pales in comparison to the cup of coffee served up in Las Vegas, Nevada, in October of 2010. An 8x8 coffee mug was constructed to hold what is now considered the world's biggest-ever cup of coffee: 2,010 gallons. That's more than you'll probably drink in a lifetime, even IF you have a serious caffeine addiction. For numbers nuts: 2,010 gallons of java amounts to nearly 32,000 regular cups of coffee.
Biggest Ice Cream Float
Love mojitos? So do people in Italy. So much so that on July 14, 2011, a group of fans created the largest-ever mojito. This monster, 1300-liter mojito took more than an hour to make (and that's with several people dumping rum, mint and sugar cane juice into a massive glass). Bet it took longer than that to consume...and to get over the hangover(s). Someone should create the world's largest aspirin for that.
Think you can polish off an order of nachos by yourself? Not this time. In April 2012, participants at the Kansas Relays in Lawrence, KS, broke the Guinness Record for the largest serving of nachos. The dish was served in an 80-foot-long trough with 4,689 pounds of chips, cheese, beef, and pico de gallo sauce - with Tums served on the side.
Biggest Sweet Tea
Pizza fan, you say? There's a record for that. In 1990, the Norwood Pick 'n Pay Hypermarket in Johannesburg, South Africa, cooked up a ginormous pizza that weighed in at nearly 27,000 pounds! This giant pizza record continues to stand today - a testament to the hugeness of the pie. Seriously nobody's beaten this record in decades now.
FYI: Papa John's holds the Guinness World Record for the world's largest pizza order. In June of 2006, Papa John's delivered 13,500 pizzas to employees and sailors at the General Dynamics NASSCO shipyard in San Diego, California.
We've all devoured monster-sized sandwiches before, but this one takes the cake. On St. Patrick's Day 2005, Wild Woody's Chill and Grill in Roseville, Michigan, created the world's largest sandwich. This monster weighed in at nearly 5500 pounds! This incredible sandwich included 4000 pounds of bread, 1000 pounds of corned beef and more than 400 pounds of lettuce, mustard and swiss cheese.
Breakfast, anyone? It's no secret that whopping-sized omelettes are all the rage, but the omelette served up by Turkish egg producers in October of 2010 beats all. The largest omelette ever made weighed in at more than six tons, requiring 110,000 eggs to make - along with 10 chefs, 50 cooks and more than 400 liters of oil.
Biggest Banana Split
When biggest food records stand for decades, you know they're impressive. Such is the case with the world's biggest banana split. Made by residents of Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania, on April 30, 1988, this incredible, delectible treat was more than 4.5 miles long (!) and included 2500 gallons of ice cream, 33,000 bananas, 450 gallons of toppnigs and yes, 600 pounds of nuts.
Biggest Piece of Chocolate
How much chocolate could you eat? How about 30,000 pounds worth? The biggest piece of individual chocolate ever created was - not surprisingly - made by Hershey's in July of 2007, at Chocolate World. The Hershey's Kiss weighed more than 30,500 pounds!
When discussing chocolate, we'd be remiss not to mention actual chocolate bars. The largest chocolate bar ever made was created by the Grand Candy company in Armenia in September of 2010. This was no ordinary bar of chocolate - it weighed more than 9700 pounds.
Biggest Ice Cream Cake
In May of 2011, Dairy Queen Canada created what is officially recognized as the world's largest ice cream cake. This delicious treat weighed more than 22,000 pounds! This thing was so big that it had to be weighed on a commercial airline scale. The chocolate ice cream cake (with buttercream icing, yum!) was designed by food engineering students at the University of Toronto. Hopefully they got the first bites of this monster before it began to melt...
Cheesecake. Who doesn't love cheesecake, right? The world's largest cheesecake was created by Kraft Foods Mexico in January of 2009. This massive dessert weighed in at more than 4700 pounds, and included nearly 1800 pounds of Philadelphia cream cheese, 800 kg. of yogurt and 550 pounds of sugar. Topped with 220 pounds of strawberries, this cheesecake was more than eight feet tall!
Cupcake fanatics, sit down. Behold, the world's largest cupcake! Created by New Hampshire's GourmetGiftBaskets.com, this monster triple-vanilla cupcake (with pink frosting) weighed in at more than 1200 pounds. Ingredients included 800 eggs and 200 pounds of sugar. And in case you're wondering: IF you ate the entire cupcake, you'd consume about 2 million calories.
"C" is for cookie, that's good enough for me..... Cookie Monster would have some trouble devouring the world's largest cookie. This chocolate chip cookie, created by the Immaculate Baking Company of North Carolina in May of 2003, weighed in at a whopping 40,000 pounds! The cookie, which was over 100 feet wide, and included 6000 pounds of chocolate chips.

This incredible confection weighed in at a massive 5200 pounds and included more than 700 pounds of butter, 2800 pounds of chocolate and 300 gallons of sweetened, condensed milk.
Biggest Yule Log
The largest yule log cake ever created weighed in at more than 5,500 pounds. This monster cake was created in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, in December of 2000. The record still stands today. Impressive!
To be fair, we should mention that the LONGEST yule log cake world record was set in December of 2010 in France. It measured more than 681 feet in length.
What can you enjoy with the world's largest cup of coffee? How about the world's largest bagel? The biggest bagel ever created was made by Brueggers Bagels in August of 2004.
