Episode Summary

EDIT
Supersized Food
AIRED:
The US has become the culture of BIG--just look at the importance of size and how it has been infused into the lifestyle we choose to live, whether it's our homes, our appliances such as large screen TVs or even eccentric stretch limos. But big has also affected what we eat. This episode explores America's growing obsession with plus-sized meals and how we cook them! Discover the largest everyday offerings of gargantuan portions--from the biggest stacked burger in the world (at almost 250 pounds), a plus-sized Sicilian pizza that feeds almost 75 people, a 72-ounce steak no real cowboy can resist, and the seven-pound hot dog that's too big for a bun. Top it all off with a giant cupcake, humongous cinnamon roll or a five pound gummy bear... and chase it down with a monster bottle of beer that holds over 101 ounces of brew.moreless

      • Narrator: It's big, it's bold, it's what's for dinner. As food becomes cheaper and more available, America's favorite dishes have grown bigger and bigger and today specialty butchers, bakers and candy makers are serving the biggest of all. From huge hot dogs to colossal cupcakes, it takes vats of raw materials, newly designed tools of the trade and the strength of many to mix, bake and serve such king size fare. Now, it's Supersized Food, on Modern Marvels.
