CHICAGO – There are a few companies that like to take food to the extreme, and that’s the case with a company in Australia.

Their item of choice to super size? A meatball – and its size isn’t the only thing that makes it very unusual.

The discussion on this “mammoth” food was part of the “9@9” on WGN Morning News on Thursday as the hosts fill you in on the details on this meatball.

Along with that, we also discussed the original name of the Chicago Cubs, “Cash Stuffing,” mandarin peel tea, a cruise with a reality TV star, and more during the segment.

You can watch the full “9@9” from the March 30 show in the video above.
