We’ve got the most loyal sports fans, several of the country’s top universities, and the best seafood in the country. And now, we’ve also got the world’s largest cannolo. As the Boston Foodie reports, the enormous (and slightly phallic) dessert was constructed right here over the weekend at the New England Dessert Showcase, weighing in at a husky 300-plus pounds and measuring 12 feet long. Wonder if they’ll sell it at Mike’s? [The Boston Foodie]
