You may remember sushi donuts from the hype they drew in 2016 and early 2017. These artsy sushi creations briefly had their viral moment on social media, but began to die down in favor of other food fads. The sushi donut is back, though, but in a colossal new form sure to make jaws drop.
This 16-pound sushi donut behemoth was made by WAVE Asian Bistro & Sushi in Mount Dora, Florida. They teamed up with JP & Julia from YouTube's HellthyJunkFood, who are known for taking popular items and supersizing them beyond belief.
Between all the seafood, seaweed salad, and rice that went into constructing the donut, it clocked in at an astonishing 7,680 calories. Despite being almost the size of an actual tire, it retained the visual pop and appeal that made the smaller versions crush on Instagram in the past.
To see HellthyJunkFood's full construction of the sushi donut from start to finish, peep the video below:
After construction was completed, JP & Julia brought in two semi-competitive eaters, Nathan Figueroa and Nick Dompierre, to see if they could take on the 16-pound sushi donut combined. Figueroa was actually able to finish his 8-pound portion, but Dompierre came up just short. You can view their full challenge attempt in the video below:
For those who want to take on this challenge themselves, or just want a massive sushi birthday cake, Wave is still considering how to offer up the 16-pound sushi donut in the future. Based on demand, they'll either offer it up just as a challenge, or have it available by order only.
