ROUND ROCK, Texas (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – They say everything’s bigger in Texas, and that includes the donuts.

That’s true at Round Rock Donuts in Round Rock, Texas, where their sweet treats are bigger than a human head.

Their “Texas-Sized Donut” is about 15 inches in diameter and weighs two pounds.

Snacking on the super-sized pastry is the equivalent of eating 13 regular-sized donuts.

Manager Paul Guderyahn says some customers see the huge donut as a challenge and try to eat the whole thing in one sitting.

And though it seems impossible, it can be done.

He explains, “They’re very light and fluffy. It’s like eating air that tastes good. It’s like you’re not eating anything. I used to eat a dozen donuts all the time.”

Still, some get psyched out by the giant size.

People often hold the donut up to their stomach to visualize how much room it’ll be taking up once it’s devoured.
