The worlds biggest gummy sweet weighs as much as a child and contains 38,000 calories
A confectioner is selling what it says is the worlds biggest gummy sweet – a giant hot dog that weighs as much as a child and contains 38,000 calories.
With the average adult woman consuming 2,000 calories a day, the sweet works out as 19 days worth of calories.
The sweet, which is flavoured in all sorts of ways, weighs 33lbs (2.4 stone or 15kg).
The bun is made from orange gummy while the sausage is cherry flavoured, topped with a mango flavoured mustard.
The sweet has a shelf life of 12 months – giving people enough time to work through it.
However, youre best off getting a group together to attempt to finish it – especially as it costs $149.99 (£120).
The sweets are handmade exclusively in North Carolina by Derek Lawson – who is known as The Gummy Bear Guy.
Currently, its available to buy from Vat19, but its currently sold out.
Jamie Salvatori, owner of Vat19.com said: Its an amazing spectacle.
Who wouldnt want this at a party or barbecue?
Its great for sharing and obviously a conversion piece of massive proportions.
Weighing 33 lbs, I wouldnt recommend anyone try to eat the entire confection in one sitting, but it does come in resealable packaging for subsequent snacking sessions.
The site also sells other huge gummies – including an enormous pizza slice and an almost life-size version of a gummy snake.
The gummy python weighs 26 pounds, is nearly eight feet long and can be wrapped around your neck just like the real thing before you start to tuck in.
The sites gigantic gummy pizza slice contains over 8,500g of sugar and has an orange-flavoured crust, strawberry-banana cheese, mango-flavoured peppers, and pepperoni slices that taste of cherry.
And a Coca Cola bottle ninety times the size of its real-life counterpart consists of over 1,000 calories and is available for just £10.
