It’s a marathon not a sprint! World’s largest Snickers bar packs a hefty punch with 2,000 calories – equivalent to a woman’s daily intake

Wondering what to get the chocolate lover in your life this Christmas? Help could be at hand in the guise of a foot long Snickers bar that's eight times the size of its regular counterpart

Ever noticed how everything has to be bigger and better than everything else these days? Only last week we brought you news of the world’s largest gingerbread house in Texas, complete with a swarm of 2,000 sugar-drunk bees.

How can you possibly better that, you cry; what could possibly be bigger and better than a giant gingerbread house?

Enter the world’s biggest Snickers bar (remember when they used to be called Marathon bars? We preferred Marathon bars)… OK, it’s not quite as big as a house, but it sure is impressive. Imagine pulling one of these beauts out of your Christmas stocking!

The enormous chocolatey treat comes in at almost eight times the size of a standard bar and packs a staggering 2,000 calories – equivalent to a woman’s recommended daily intake. Who needs vegetables anyway?

It measures almost one food long, weighs a hefty 454g and includes 198g of fat, although it is recommended that the bar should be eaten over nine servings or, heaven’s forbid, shared!

On retailer Firebox.com‘s website it says: ‘Grab yourself a mean fork
and an electric carving knife, slice it up and enjoy a large mouthful
of nutty, chewy, chocolate heaven.

‘It’s all you need to become horrifically obese.’

Although it does helpfully warn, ‘the World’s Largest Snickers bar is not a suitable replacement for a regular healthy diet.’

Well, we’re glad they cleared that up.

This much chocolate heaven will set you back £24.99 and would definitely win you points for originality this Christmas.

Bed Redhead from Firebox.com said: ‘We’re pretty big fans of giant confectionery, so we jumped at the chance to stock this behemoth bar.

‘Who needs Christmas pudding when you’ve got this tucked away in the kitchen? It’ll be the gift that keeps on giving…’

Indeed.

And just in case you’re wondering, a standard Snickers bar costs around 60p, weighs 58g and contains 510 calories.
