A Bunch Of Chefs In China Made A Huge Pumpkin Pie For…No Real Reason.
If you thought the pumpkin spice craze would die down any time soon, think again. First, there were pumpkin spice lattes, cupcakes, pancakes, candles, and cookies. Now, a new (and even more absurd) tribute to the autumnal flavor has appeared.
In China, a group of cooks recently decided to create a massive version of the American Thanksgiving staple, pumpkin pie.
There were around 40 cooks working on the batter.
Along with pumpkin, ingredients also included raisins, dates, and lots of sugar.
The pan had a circumference over 130 feet.
The cooks formed an assembly line to add the ingredients.
Extra large utensils were required.
Altogether, the pie weighed in at an impressive 1,893 pounds.
As gargantuan as it is, there has been an even bigger pumpkin pie.
World Record holders in Ohio baked up a 3,699 pound pie back in 2010.
But I wonder who would win in a taste test?

I”m sure if we took the amount of pumpkin spice lattes consumed over the past month, there would be a sizable cup ready to help wash this big boy down. Someone should get Starbucks on the phone!
