I scream, you scream, we all scream for awesomely overindulgent ice cream. This towering cone of soft serve temptation is offered by the Daily Chico restaurant in basement of the Nakano Broadway shopping mall in Tokyo. Eight different flavors sit atop an extra-large sugar cone, which only costs 390 yen ($3.60 US).
Starting from the top, there’s Tochi Otome strawberry, chocolate, mocha, vanilla, melon, grape, matcha green tea, and finally ramune (a popular type of Japanese fizzy cider).
However Daily Chico says that the flavor line-up will change periodically, so this doesn’t have to be a once-in-a-lifetime treat.
Let’s check in on the decadent, completely inedible, yet perfectly wearable shoes from The Shoe Bakery (previously featured here). The Orlando, Florida-based company is run by Chris Campbell, who loves both shoes and sweets so much that he decided to combine them in the form of outrageously tantalizing ice cream, cake and donut-themed footwear.
If you’ve got a specific dessert and shoe combination in mind, Campbell happily accepts custom orders. Each mouthwatering pair of Shoe Bakery shoes takes about 3-6 weeks to design, create and ship. Prices range from $200 to $400 US, which should provide you with all the more incentive to refrain from trying to eat them.
Visit The Shoe Bakery’s website to check out more of their enticingly iced footwear.

The Department of Outrageously Overindulgent Bloody Marys just gained a new member, thanks to Sobelman’s Pub and Grill in Milwaukee, WI. This awesomely excessive Bloody Mary is called the Chicken Fried Bloody Beast. It features 13 different garnishes (cheese, sausage, pickle, olive, onion, mushroom, asparagus, scallion, shrimp, lemon, Brussels sprout, tomato, and celery), 2 baconadoes (skewers of bacon-wrapped jalapeño cheese balls), and 1 whole fried chicken.
The Chicken Fried Bloody Beast costs $50 and serves 2 to 4 people. $5 from each sale will be donated to Milwaukee’s Hunger Task Force.
A couple months ago we shared what we thought was an awesomely overindulgent parfait. Today we learned that that 48-centimeter (18.9-inch) dessert is but an appetizer for this glorious 120-centimeter (47.25-inch) tower of immoderation. It’s called the “Nagasaki Dream Tower” and it’s on the menu at Cafe Olympic in Nagasaki, Japan.
The cafe refers to itself as “Parfait Heaven” and these photos make it clear why. This lofty dessert is nearly four feet of ice cream, ice cream cones, chocolate cake, soft serve ice cream, sherbet, cheesecake, fruit (see, now it’s healthy!), chiffon cake, coffee-flavored jello, whipped cream and corn flakes. It’s a good thing they serve these giant desserts with incredibly long spoons.
It never fails. Every time the hard-working Department of Outrageously Overindulgent Bloody Marys thinks things have grown quiet enough to step out and get a bloody marys for themselves, along comes an even bigger one. Technically this monstrosity is a Bloody Caesar, a Canadian variation on the classic Bloody Mary.
It was created by the folks at Score on Davie, a bar located in Vancouver, BC. They call it the ‘Checkmate Caesar' and its gargantuan garnish features a whole roast chicken, a bacon cheeseburger, a pulled pork mac & cheese hot dog (just pause and consider this hot dog for a moment, because, wow), chicken wings, a slider, one triumphant pickle spear, roasted veggies (to make it healthy) and a whipped cream-covered brownie (for dessert).

Is it a Wonut? Is it a Doffle? These gloriously deep-fried waffle-donut hybrids are made by the batter wizards at Chicago’s Waffles Cafe and we don’t care what they finally decide to call them, so long as we get to try each and every flavor. They may be Chicago’s answer to New York’s cronut and they’re a mouthwatering reason to forgo sleeping late in favor of getting up early and indulging our insatiable sweet tooth.
According to Waffles Cafe owner Alex Hernandez, each batch of wonuts can take up to two hours to make. They’re made using various flavors of a thicker version of the cafe’s signature waffle batter, which is first cooked to perfection in a waffle iron. The three-inch doffles are then deep-fried in vegetable shortening and finally dipped in a sugar, marshmallow, maple or chocolate glaze. But wait, they’re also served covered in an assortment of additional goodies such as sprinkles, chocolate shavings or candied orange peels.
They even made vivid green Shamrock Frosting Waffle Donuts for St. Patrick’s Day.

Pizza is pretty much always a good thing, but what sort of super awesome, cheese-packed, dream come true is this? Canadian pizza chain Boston Pizza recently launched a new marketing campaign, entitled “Pizza Game Changers“, for which they are asking their customers to vote on what new items they’d most like to see on their summer menu.
Their promise is “If you like it, we will make it,” and the ideas currently on the virtual ballot include pizza mints, a gas-powered pizza cutter, pizza cheese clippers, the pizza pocket, pizza car fresheners, the pizza protector, the pizza beardkin, and the glorious pizza cake pictured here.
The six-layer pizza cake is currently in the lead, so we’re hopeful that this gloriously overindulgent pizza fantasy becomes a reality.
Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) continues to amaze us with his awesomely overindulgent creations. His latest effort is this impressive tower of food called the Alphabet Sandwich. It’s a sandwich featuring 26 different toppings, each one starting with a different letter from the alphabet.
"Now, I know that sounds simple enough, but do you realize how difficult it is to find a food that starts with the letter X? To solve that issue I eventually settled on xylocarp, which is defined as “a hard, woody fruit that grows on trees,” or in other words, a coconut.
Here’s a complete list of every ingredient in the gloriously gluttonous Alphabet Sandwich:
Italian sausage patty
Krispy Kreme doughnut
Macaroni and cheese
Quest blanco dip
This awesomely overindulgent edible behemoth is called the Ulti-Meatum. It’s a cheeseburger (complete with buns) inside another cheeseburger, sandwiched between two more cheeseburgers. It’s 10,000 calories worth of food on a single plate and it was created by Corinne Clarkson, owner of Mister Eaters Fish and Chips in Preston, Lancashire, England. Clarkson was inspired to create such an imposing tower of meat, cheese and bread after watching an episode of Regular Show on Cartoon Network.
Mrs. Clarkson freely admits that she hasn’t actually tried the Ulti-Meatum herself:
‘I couldn’t eat it – I haven’t even been tempted yet. It’s massive. There must be someone in the country who wants to try – and they’re more than welcome.’
She really means it too, the Ulti-Meatum is free to any customer able to finish it in one sitting. But if you’d rather break it up into ever-so-slightly more sensible portions, for £20 ($33 USD) Mrs. Clarkson’s husband John will happily prepare each section for you as a separate serving.
Behold the overindulgent awesomeness that is a 125.5 lb hot dog. It was just unveiled at the Miami-Dade County Fair by Brett Enright, founder of Juicy’s Outlaw Grill. Enright currently holds the Guinness record for the World’s Largest Commercially Available Hamburger, which weighs 777 lbs, costs $5,000 and has to be ordered two days in advance. He’s hoping that this monstrous hotdog will also prove to be a record breaker.
"Weighing in at 125.5 pounds — the naked dog tipped the scale at 51 pounds; the rest of the heft came from a gargantuan bun and gallons of condiments — the dog was cooked for three hours on a 100-foot mobile grill that travels from fair to fair on the bed of a 27-ton tractor-trailer."
After this particular hot dog was photographed and weighed, it was sliced up and served to fairgoers for $1 per serving with all proceeds going to charity. However Enright says that, like his giant burger, the colossal hot dog can be special-ordered for parties (or ravenously hungry giants) for a mere $1000.
