Since the dawn of time, man has challenged himself to ridiculous feats of eating. Sometimes, he gets a t-shirt on the wall. Other times, he gets his name in a record book for wasting ridiculous amounts of food in the name of glory. And heart disease, probably.
Restaurants, take-out venues, canteens, chai dhabas, hotels are everywhere you turn, and the variety of foods that we are now exposed to has grown exponentially in the last few decades. 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.
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.
A sincere apology if this makes you hungry.
