It would take a long time to finish off this impressive Pringle near Pocatello!
The Idaho Potato Museum is the home of this Big Thing To See in the USA, one of the Procter & Gamble company’s greatest (and strangest) achievements in the area of snack foods.
The World’s Largest Potato Crisp is a Pringles brand crisp that was engineered in Jackson, Tennessee, way back in June 1991. This amazing monument to America’s love of the greasy, artificially-manufactured snacks — they used to contain more ACTUAL POTATOES than salt & preservatives — is 25 inches long and over 14 inches wide, weighs 5.4 ounces (1/3 pound), and has more surface area than the usual family-size pizza!
New York City is the place where you can see a lot of the world’s largest things. There was the world’s largest LEGO model — an X-Wing Starfighter spaceship from Star Wars — that LEGO and LucasFilms displayed in Times Square in May 2013. The biggest solar-powered boat on Earth, the “Turanor PlanetSolar” docked in New York in June 2013. And in 2015 or 2016, a giant 625-foot tall Ferris wheel called the New York Wheel will open on Staten Island! (“They like it. They wheely like it,” wrote New York Daily News reporter Casey Tolan.)
