    Here's What Happened When We Tried To Eat A 5-Pound Sushi Roll

    It's basically a newborn baby made out of sushi.

    This is Jasmine. She LOVES giant food.

    She even hosts a show about it called Giant Food Time!

    This is Jasmine's friend, Kelsey. She LOVES sushi.

    She eats it multiple times a week and her local spot even knows her by name.

    And THIS is a giant sushi roll.

    You can find this monster at Deli Sushi & Desserts in San Diego, California.

    When Jasmine discovered this, she decided to take Kelsey on a ~super secret~ trip from LA to San Diego so she could surprise her with this giant version of her favorite food!

    For context, the "Monster Roll" can weigh between 5 and 6 pounds, and each piece is approximately the size of a burger.

    That's a lot of sushi... *gulps*

    And the entire roll is equivalent to eight normal sushi rolls.

    BuzzFeed

    Yup, you heard right. That's a whole table's worth of sushi in one roll!

    Let's just say that Kelsey was more than a little surprised to open her eyes to a ~literal~ food baby.

    I mean, the roll was the size of her calf. HER CALF!

    The restaurant challenges patrons to finish their rolls in under 15 minutes to earn a spot on the wall of fame.

    So Kelsey and Jasmine had to give it a shot! After signing a waiver, of course.

    There were some highs.

    And also some lows.

    Note: Giant chopsticks do not make this challenge any easier.

    Okay, maybe a lot of lows.

    BuzzFeed

    That's gotta burn.

    Alas, in the end, they couldn't complete the challenge and their photos ended up on the wall of shame.

    BuzzFeed

    But hey, at least they got leftovers, right?

    Now please excuse me while I watch this on loop and try not to drool on my phone.
