The popular Swedish furniture retailer -- who also sells meatballs for some reason -- are taking things to the next level this Christmas with giant 10-lb meatballs. According to the purveyors of particleboard, the giant meatball can feed up to 25 people.

The giant ball elicited a lot of feelings when it was unveiled on Instagram-- a mixture of excitement and bewilderment. The comment that took the cake was:

We're gonna need a bigger gravy boat.

IKEA confirmed the colossal meatball's reality and announced a giveaway for 30 lucky winners. For those leaning towards a meatless option, there's a chance to snag a Veggieball Christmas Tree.


The meatball giveaway is exclusive to the UK, but there are high hopes for a future release in the U.S. Fingers crossed that a giant Swedish meatball feast is on the horizon for Americans.
