Largest Buckeye.

Giant Buckeye

The retail area of the Anthony-Thomas chocolate factory has a giant Buckeye for sale, made out of chocolate and peanut butter. From the looks of the case it (or a fresh version of it) is a pretty permanent fixture. According to the tour guide, they make the official OSU buckeyes and periodically donate these as fundraisers, or to serve at University functions. Incidentally, the factory gives a pretty interesting tour. It costs a small amount, but they give you a voucher for the same amount to spend on chocolate, so it's more or less free. Plus, you get a buckeye (normal size) to sample.

World's Largest Chocolate Buckeye

Inside the Anthony Thomas Factory store is the World's Largest Buckeye made of chocolate, along with a bunch of other chocolate goodies. The best part is you can buy the buckeye for $3,500.
