You know how they say some people are God-sent for the world’s own good, well, these people are angels. These world records are sure to make your taste bud tingle
1. Largest Doughnut
Sure, it’s not at all weird that U.S.A has a National Doughnut Day, given that it sells so much mostly in Canada *wink wink*. But the history behind it is quite interesting – In 1917, Salvation Army female volunteers known as “lassies” prepared thousands of fresh donuts to the homesick soldiers that served in France during World War I.
There is no doubt as to why someone wouldn’t want to make a large doughnut! so, someone did!!! And the largest donut ever made was an American-style jelly donut weighing 1.7 tons, which was 16 feet in diameter and 16 inches high in the center.
2. Largest Pizza
Five Italian chefs came together to create the World’s Biggest Pizza. The delicious monstrosity measured 131-feet in diameter, tipped the scales at over 51,000 pounds, and contained 1,488 pounds of margarine, 19,800 pounds of flour, 10,000 pounds of tomato sauce, 8,800 pounds of mozzarella cheese, 551 pounds of salt, 220 pounds of lettuce and 55 pounds of vinegar.
Now, this is true love *happy tears* . All hail Italy!
3. Largest Burger
You would think Adam Richman is the only one who travels the world for his love for burgers, but he is not. Chef Steve mallie proved his love for burgers when he produced a 185lb (84kg) burger which took him 8 hrs! The stomach-busting meal sells for a wallet-busting $499 dollars (£302) at Mallie’s Sports Grill and Bar in Southgate, Michigan, USA.
4. Largest Cupcake
You don’t have to be strawberry shortcake to have a world of cupcakes. If you have a sweet tooth you might like this world record- A 1,224-pound (555-kilogram) triple vanilla cupcake with pink frosting has set a record as the largest cupcake in the world.The colossal cupcake took 12 hours to bake and included 800 eggs and 200lb (90 kg) each of sugar and flour.

6. Largest French Fries
