Atkins lovers rejoice. There’s a new Wurst in town, and it’s more than a little spicy — it’s abso-effin-lutely giant. As in, 7,500 pounds giant. Now that’s a whole lot of meat.

Before you go breaking out the sexual innuendos, you should know this concoction was made for the 31st Kobasicijada festival in Turija, Serbia, an annual gathering that celebrates over-sized sausages. In other words? It’s go big or go home for Turija residents. Each year they try and outdo themselves by extending the length of sausage they create.


We, however, had plenty of questions about this thing. Like, is it the longest sausage in the world? As it turns out, no.

That record is currently held by a group of Romanians, who created a 205,873 foot sausage last December. As for the largest sausage, that was created back in 2009 by some folks from Turkey.

So what did go into this snake-like food item from Serbia?

Well, 7,562 pounds of meat, to start. Seasoned from a whopping 28 pigs.

When we say seasoned, we mean seasoned. The sausage contained 132 pounds of salt, 57 pounds of paprika and 22 pounds of black pepper and garlic.

As for the length? This guy came in at 6,663 feet. That’s the equivalent of more than 220 of the world’s largest snakes, the green anaconda (which can grow up to 30 feet).

No word on whether festival goers who bought a chunk of the fun paired it with a bun.

But at 2,000 metres, we’re sure they had all the fun they could handle.
