* Australia's Big Things often include Giant Foods.... The Big Banana, for example.
* Alaskan farmers can legitimately boast of their giant fruits and vegetables, as their high-latitude fields can receive twenty or more hours of sunlight on summer days, giving crops' photosynthesis a boost.
** Conversely, some tropical fruits actually grow to two or three times the size of those sold to Europe or the United States, but such full-grown crops are eaten locally: only under-ripe specimens, picked early so they can finish ripening in transit, are exported in quantity.
* There are world records for baking the largest pizza, cookie, etc. However, to qualify for the ''Literature/GuinnessWorldRecords'', the food in question must be eaten after being made, so these giant foods are often features at carnivals, county fairs, and other large events with big crowds.
** One such example is the world's largest submarine sandwich: it was as wide as an ordinary sub sandwich, but nearly ''half a mile long''.
* Several restaurants offer an unusually large steak, hamburger, pizza, or other dish which is free if a single diner can consume the entire dish within a specified time limit.
* Pretty much any fruit or vegetable grown commercially these days is likely to qualify as this, by the standards of centuries past, as the "green revolution" in agriculture has greatly increased the size of many crop plants.

* ''TheSmurfs'' comic book story "Salad Smurfs" had Farmer grow really big vegetables from his garden when Chef Smurf forced him to use more of Papa Smurf's fungicide and fertilizer than was necessary. Unfortunately, it had the side effect of turning the Smurfs who ate the vegetables into AnthropomorphicFood.

* Used extensively on ''[[DoubleDare1986 Double Dare]]''. Some of the obstacles on the [[BonusRound Obstacle Course]] included a giant slice of pizza, peanut butter and jelly sandwich, sushi roll, hamburger, stack of waffles, and birthday cake, just to name a few. Later in the show's run, a common physical challenge would be to create a giant replica of some food, such as a burrito or bowl of cereal, with one of the contestants naturally replacing one of the ingredients.

Added DiffLines:

* Food like this appeared on ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' a lot, with bronto burgers pterodactyl wings and the like rather big, seeing as they were made from big dinosaurs. Most notably, the rib place in the closing credits where the huge ribs - carried by a petite waitress - cause the car to tip over.

Added DiffLines:

* Shaggy and Scooby found a place in one episode of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooWhereAreYou'' that sold Mile Long Hot Dogs. (an exaggeration; the hot dog they bought was "only" about 100 feet long.)
