Fair Food Friday: Eating Competition

September 27, 2013

Yesterday we mentioned our Fair Food Frenzy, which happened this afternoon! 16 participants competed to see who could chow down a 1 1/2 pound Krispy Kreme cheeseburger the fastest (the equivalent of a sugar-loaded 4×4 from In n’ Out).

We had a wide variety of contestants but all of them had one thing in common: They could eat. And eat a lot. We have to give them kudos for not running away when they saw the size of these burgers.
It was fun to see everyone attacking these ginormous Chicken Charlie burgers. Our winners finished their dishes within minutes (maybe 3 minutes max) and it was crazy to see! Strategies included compressing the doughnuts flat, drinking a lot of water and even dousing the burgers with water for easier chewing and digestion. (Are you grossed out yet?)
We had first, second and third place winners, with 1st and 2nd place receiving a VIP Weekend at the Sheraton Fairplex hotel. A special big thank-you to the Sheraton Fairplex and McKinley’s Grille for generously donating these prizes!
I guess its just another day at the Fair… 🙂
