This is a good idea, does anyone have any suggestions?

I can nominate peanut butter, potato waffles and Linda McCartney Pies.

I humbly nominate my homemade hummus:

1 tin chick peas - about 240/250g I think
70ml olive oil
30ml lemon juice
60g tahini
1 clove garlic
Pinch of salt

Adds up to over 1200 calories & can be scoffed in minutes.

Party tube of Pringles has that beat, and you can easily eat another tube right after. NOTHING beats a party tube of Pringles for pure bulking power.

I dunno, pringles seem to shred the inside of my mouth. Could probably eat a whole tube but it would be painful. Normal eat half a tube, tub of hummus and 500ml of pepsi for a saturday afternoon junk food treat.

You know you're a rubbish bulker when a tube of Pringles is too much and hummus is considered junk food. What next - bulking on kale and spirulina smoothies? HTFU.

A 500g bag of Julian Graves fruit jellies is 1745Kcal.
Not only that, they are also all different colours, so they make up your five portions of fruit and veg a day.

How are you going to measure "highest calorie"?

Highest calorie per unit mass?
Highest calorie per serving?
Highest calorie raw vegetable?
Highest density of calories?

Just saying plain "highest calorie" has me thinking back not on the densest calorie food, but rather on the time I ate A LOT of low density foods... but seriously a lot. One hot spring day in 1997, I ate 6lbs of food in one sitting followed by two large cookies; all right after dinner. I was ill the next day. But it was surely a lot of calories, even if most of it was rice and tofu.

...or perhaps that time I drank olive oil?

I want to know what ya'll mean by "highest calorie" food.
"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."

I think its a very loose meaning, based on how easily you can eat it.
Eatibility vs Calories.

Wouldn't liquid calories then be among the top ones? I mean just the fact that all the eatatons so far has had restrictions on how many calories from fluids should be a pretty good indication.

With that said, I nominate Alpro Chocolate Soymilk :)

^ True true!

I know Phelps gets most of his (empty) calories from sports drinks. (Sugar + Water) X frequent drinking = lots of calories.

As far as "eatable" goes, I wish to nominate sugared deep fried peanut butter balls coated with coconut.
