Looking for a little snack? How about a big one?

Los Angeles' Candy Factory has created what it says is the world's largest peanut butter cup, using 440 pounds of ingredients, well over the currently recognized 250-pound peanut butter cup. Prepared in a kiddie pool, this concoction is a feast for the eyes and exhibit A in just why the US may have a problem with expanding waistlines.

The shop is waiting for Guinness to verify its attempt at history. Once Guinness says the Candy Factory has set the record, it will cut the sweet treat into small pieces and sell them off, with proceeds going to charity.
