In the wee hours of last Wednesday, a candy icon was hoisted and stuck to the façade of Hershey’s Chocolate World (set to open June 3 at New York-New York). Of course, it was a Reese’s peanut butter cup, the prize of all Halloween bags and office-drawer stashes. But this sucker is 18 feet across, begging the question: What if it was edible? Using a standard Reese’s cup and the formula for the volume of a cylinder (and a superior math brain for hire), we extrapolated rough nutrition stats for Cupzilla. The standard treat, which is about 2 inches across, 105 calories and 6.5 grams of fat, is roughly 105,029 times smaller. That means the 18-footer would pack 682,688 grams of fat into 11,028,045 calories. Considering the average man is only supposed to have about 2,000 calories a day, that’s more than 5,514 days’ worth in one cup. On the bright side, it would probably take that long to eat it.
