The gigantic dessert weighing one thousand pounds, measured 9 feet and 2 inches in diameter. SOUNDBITE: DAVID SLOAN, CO-FOUNDER OF THE KEY LIME FESTIVAL, SAYING: "The thing that makes Key lime pie perfect for the Fourth of July is {that} there's nothing more American. Key limes, Key lime pie, it came from America right here in Key West, Florida, and that's why we celebrate each Fourth of July with our Key lime pie." The pie was made with more than 6,000 key limes, 220 pounds of graham crackers and 60 gallons of condensed milk. The sweet treat was big enough to carve out 1,500 servings.
