Do you possess the type of prodigious doughnut-eating skills that would put the likes of Homer J Simpson to shame? Well, now’s the time to prove it and win a cornucopia of sweet treats into the bargain.
That’s because Junction-based sweet tooth’s Nirvana Doughheads have laid down the gauntlet with an eating challenge kicking off this weekend.
It’s all about the need for doughnut speed for this one, with the popular eatery charging hungry fans to scoff four of their special ‘Shownut’ doughnuts in the fastest time possible.
While this may not seem much of a Herculean task, the doughnut in question is a STACKED concoction, fit to burst with strawberry cheesecake and topped with a literal show bag of treats – raspberry buttercream, biscuit crumble, mini M&Ms and a fairy biscuit.
Also, the time to beat is 1.48 held by local food addict Newy’s Dapper Bloke, so this one is definitely not for the doughnut dilettantes.
The three competitors who finish with the fastest time will receive free tickets to the upcoming Newcastle Regional Show and an automatic entry into the final event to crown Newcastle’s doughnut eating champion at the show on Saturday 6 March.
And aside from the bragging rights of being the best eater of doughnuts in all of the land, the overall winner will also nab themselves A YEAR’S SUPPLY OF DOUGHNUTS!
It looks as though this year’s Newcastle Regional Show is shaping up to be a no. fooling ‘eater’s paradise’ with the likes of Doughheads, Smokin Hot ‘N Saucy, Rascal, Harbour Bar, Criniti’s, Sherwood Coffee Bar, Newy Fried Chicken, Mayfield West Kebabs & Charcoal Chicken, Miller’s Pie & Sandwich Bar, Taco Locato and the Chilli Factory hosting preliminary rounds for what is shaping up to be one of the biggest eating comps in Oz!
The Doughheads Doughnut Eating Challenge is on Saturday 20 February. Head here for more information and to enter.
