Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups may not be the most popular candy bars (that honor goes to Snickers), but they’re definitely the most obsessed over. They also scale up really well, which is handy in the continuing battle among candy bar makers to produce the biggest, unhealthiest snack Americans can eat without vomiting. As long as the chocolate walls are reinforced to handle the extra peanut butter load, you can keeping increasing Reese’s cup size without compromising the flavor. Until some mad scientist invents gigantic mutant peanuts, Snickers will never be able to compete.
This giant Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup goes beyond King Size or Super Size, dubbing itself (in Guinness Book fashion) as “The World’s Largest.” To put this massive calorie-packed confection into perspective, it’s dimensions are: 10 inches long, 5.5 inches wide, and 2.5 inches thick. Each disk is 8 oz, adding up to a full pound.
The biggest reaction actually comes from reading the nutritional information on the package. A serving size is defined as one-sixth of one of these huge peanut butter cups. However, if you tally up all the data for both cups, it comes to 2,289 calories, 133 grams of fat (54 saturated), and 241 grams of sugar.
Needless to say, these are more of a special occasion food. You wouldn’t want to tackle one of these oversized candy bars yourself (er, right?). One rather cool idea would to slice one up like a pie and serve it at a Halloween party. Alternatively, you could buy one as a Christmas gift for a Reese’s lover. For once, they may actually be willing to share. If not, you can take comfort in the thought that their selfishness will likely bring on the mother of all stomach aches.
