The Buckeye Lady is most likely creating the largest buckeye you’ve ever seen in your life.

That’s because, this Easter, the popular Columbus treat vendor is creating a seasonal Buckeye that tops the scales at one-half of a pound.

To put this into perspective, with the average weight of  most regular buckeye hovering around one ounce, this means the treat is just under ten times the size of a standard buckeye.

The seasonal offering, which is on sale now, contains chocolate ganache and is topped with festive Easter sprinkles in addition to a chocolate drizzle.

“Our half pound buckeye was a happy accident. We had some leftover dough and an employee decided to roll it into a one large buckeye, and it turned out so cute,” said owner Alicia Hindman. “It marries the two Easter classics, a peanut butter egg and a chocolate bunny, while still holding true to the quintessential symbol of Ohio—a classic buckeye candy.”
