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.
Randy Liedtke created this Bloody Mary that’s so awesomely over-the-top it clearly belongs in our Department of Outrageously Overindulgent Bloody Marys.
The cocktail is garnished with one footlong sub, four pieces of fried chicken, one entire pepperoni pizza, two double cheeseburgers, onion ring, french fries, garlic bread, pickles, olives, onions, one whole lemon, one whole lime, jalapeños, and last but not least, a second Bloody Mary.

We’ve just found the parfait equivalent of the outrageously overindulgent bloody mary. This sweet triple-decker monstrosity is called the EST 48 (named after its towering 18.9 inch height) and it’s on the menu at Café Est! Est!, located in a shopping and dining complex in the heart of downtown Tokyo next to Shinjuku Station.
The café offers a wide assortment of outrageously over-the-top partfaits (some come topped with slices of cake), but the EST 48 is by far the most decadent of them all. It comes topped with not one, but two ice cream cones, both of which are covered with toppings and sprinkles.
"At the base, there’s a dish of vanilla ice cream ringed with strawberries, bananas, and Pocky sticks (plus imitation Corn Flakes, as is seemingly required by Japanese sundae regulations). On top of that there’s an ice cream cone with chocolate sauce and sprinkles. Inserted into that is another ice cream cone, this time with strawberry sauce and more sprinkles. And finally, just to make sure the whole thing doesn’t visually disappoint by being too short, there’s an umbrella."
We can feel a brain freeze coming on simply by considering trying to eat the awesome EST 48.

Do you envy the lifestyle of Scrooge McDuck, who spends his spare time diving into, burrowing through, and swimming laps in his massive sea of money? Here’s your chance to take up the awesome hobbies of the world’s richest anthropomorphic duck. Luxury marketplace JamesEdition is hosting the auction of an genuine Swiss bank safe “swimming pool” containing 8 million Swiss 5 cent Rappen coins.
Located in Basel, Switzerland, this early 20th century safe holds 15 tons of “liquid” money, worth roughly $450,000, waiting patiently for the highest bidder to arrive and take a golden dip. The safe and its contents can be relocated anywhere the winning bidder desires. The swimming might chafe a little, but you’d still have no problem inviting people over for pool parties.
Click here for more information and, if you’ve already got more than a little pocket money, to participate in the auction.
Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) is a bacon wizard. Everything he’s made using bacon has made our mouths water and this latest creation is no exception. Behold the dainty, decadent glory of Bacon Weave S’mores. They’re like traditional s’mores with one meaty exception: Instead of graham crackers, the melted chocolate and marshmallow are sandwiched between two heavenly pieces of woven bacon strips.
"I made each square the exact same size as half of a Hershey’s Chocolate bar, which as you can see from the photos ended up being three pieces of bacon by two pieces of bacon. Since I didn’t need full slices of bacon for the squares either I was able to create two complete squares from just five pieces of bacon by cutting each one in half first.
Since the chocolate and marshmallow melt so easily that if you make these you’ll want to make sure that your bacon weave squares are completely cooked before you add the two final ingredients. After adding the chocolate and marshmallow it was just a quick 30 seconds in the microwave until my Bacon Weave S’mores were ready to eat!”

Nick from DudeFoods, creator of outrageous edibles and Geyser of Awesome hero, (previously featured here) recently combined one of every single sandwich on the menu at a McDonalds in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. To create this awesome edible monstrosity, which he dubbed The McEverything, Nick made sure to include all of the breakfast sandwiches in addition to the regular lunch/dinnertime offerings. The towering feast cost $140.33.
"You see, I have a bucket list, but instead of things like sky diving, swimming with sharks or other death defying feats of adventure that you’d find on most typical bucket lists mine is completely food related. The number one thing on my list for two or three years now has been to make this sandwich, which I’ve dubbed the McEverything."
"After all 43 sandwiches were finished and sitting at my table I got to work putting the McEverything together. I originally anticipated it only being a couple of feet high, but as you can see from the pictures it ended up MUCH taller than that. I took a few photos along the way as well just so the whole thing wouldn’t be a total waste if ended up tumbling over onto the floor before I finished stacking all the sandwiches on top of one another. Oh, and if you’re wondering how I held the entire thing together the answer is bamboo skewers… lots and lots of bamboo skewers….”

We hope you’re hungry, because it’s time pay a visit to the Bureau of Brobdingnagian Burgers where we’ll take a look at what might just be the “World’s Single Most Expensive Fast Food Hamburger.”
Ordered by Beau Chevassus of Chevassus Studios, this edible monstrosity is a modified Jumbo Jack burger from Jack In The Box. Instead of one beef patty there are 20, along with lots of bacon (probably not enough, because is there really such a thing?), slices of every cheese on the menu, fried eggs, onion rings, ham, turkey, chicken patties, and sour dough buns - all topped with one of Jack In The Box’s signature antenna balls. Whew! The price for this 9,044 calorie meal was $38.23.
Here’s hoping that no one grew so delirious while consuming all of this meat, cheese, and fried goodness, that they ended up eating the antenna ball too.
