In one of the more delicious moments on the Australian campaign trail, a world record eight metre snack pack was created and then devoured at a Labor Party fundraiser.

The monstrosity was constructed on Monday night in Perth and contained 🍟 100kg of chips,🍗 70kg of meat, 20 kg of cheese and 15 kg of holy trinity sauce (BBQ, garlic, chilli).

The evil genius behind the creation is Ali Hamze, owner of Perth Kebab Station, who claims it's the biggest snack pack ever made in the world. He estimates it cost just under $2000 to make.

Hamze's previously made a 2.5 metre long, 75kg snack pack that set the internet on fire.

Hamze told BuzzFeed News there's an art to the food creation - there can't be more than a pinky width of food without sauce.

Old and young were left salivating from the 205kg delicacy. Many senior party members admitted to BuzzFeed News they'd never tried the meat in a box delicacy.

She said it normally hangs in her bathroom, but she wheels it out at Labor party fundraisers. She even showed it to the Labor leader who told her he found it "terrifying" and "disturbing".

The night was a fundraiser for Tammy Solonec, Labor's candidate in Swan ... but the main focus of the night was the halal snack pack, which adorned the main table in all its record-breaking glory.
