Mentone egg and friends.

World's Largest Egg

Field review by the editors.

Mentone, Indiana

There's not much to see if you get off the Interstates and head into the flat, rural interior of north-central Indiana. But Mentone's big egg is a required detour for any serious collector of big food photo opportunities.

The Mentone Egg is made of concrete, weighs 3,000 pounds, and is about 10 feet high. It was originally constructed in 1946 to advertise the local egg festival. It's inscribed with " The Egg Basket of the Midwest" and a basket of eggs within an outline-shape of Indiana.

It sits along a shrubbed strip in a bank parking lot.

A shop across the street sells souvenir t-shirts; ask a friendly Mentone resident to point you towards it.
