It is a nearly 36 million calorie world record holder. The largest gingerbread house in the world has been built in Bryan.

The A&M Traditions Club constructed the house with donations and help from the community. To be eligible to set the record, the entirety of the nearly 22-foot-tall house had to be completely edible. The one room inside is made of wood.

    Ok, so all proceeds go to a great cause. I'm ok with that. In reality, it was a big let down. The "gingerbread" portion of the house was covered in vinyl from ground to roof so you really can't see the walls. After walking to the "pool house" where you purchase your fancy ticket, you are allowed entry to one room which is made of gingerbread colored wood. The entire experience lasted 2 minutes and then we'd seen enough. (really not much to see). If you want to support a good charity, go see the World's Largest Gingerbread House. If you're looking for a fun night with the family, rent Polar Express.

    Um ... any chance you might want to tell us WHERE IT IS LOCATED? I would love to take my family to see it but I don't know where it is.

    Oh yes, the gingerbread house built at the Mall of the Americas was not 36000 square feet, it was 36000 CUBIC feet. A 36000 square foot gingerbread house would be bigger than 18 standard houses.
