Florida Chef Delights Shoppers by Whipping Up World's Largest Key Lime Pie at Atlanta Mall
The finished pie weighed a whopping 1,000 lbs.
What do you get when you combine 5,766 Key limes, 200 pounds of graham crackers and 55 gallons of sweetened condensed milk? A 1,000-pound Key lime pie, of course!
Florida Keys restaurateur Bobby Stoky and his team made their way into the record books by whipping up the world's largest Key lime pie for shoppers at Atlanta's Lenox Square mall over the weekend.
The gigantic pie measured eight feet in diameter—the size certified by the World Record Association as the globe's largest—and yielded servings for about 2,000 people, according to CBS Miami.

"Key lime pie is the signature dessert of the Florida Keys," Stoky explained. "The best Key lime pie is 50% sweet and 50% tart. It's absolutely amazing."
The monster dessert was made to help bring awareness to the Key's continued recovery from Hurricane Irma. Currently, 80% of hotels and restaurants have reopened since the storm devastated the Keys in September.
