Of all the so-called ‘Seven Deadly Sins’, gluttony seems to be the one transgression that we not only accept in society -- we actively reward it. Trips to all-you-can-eat buffets are approached with the kind of strategy and planning that a Navy Seals team puts into a covert mission. Competitive eaters are idolized with nearly the same level of adoration as professional athletes. And food television shows like Man vs. Food and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives have reached huge audiences for essentially promoting the rise of cholesterol levels.
The explosion of food culture, partially driven by people’s growing need to post photos of their meals on social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook, has only pushed this quest for calories to new heights. And let’s be honest: half the time someone claims to be a ‘foodie’, they really just mean ‘fatty’. So it’s more than understandable that restaurants around the world are offering outlandish food challenges that would make even the most insatiable of appetites feeling nauseated. Here now are 12 of the most ridiculous restaurant challenges around the world:
12 The 'I Can’t Drive' $55 Dollar Nachos Challenge
11 The Triple Jumbo Ramen Challenge
10 The Inferno Pizza Challenge
9 The Dawg Ice Cream Sundae Challenge
8 The Pancake Challenge
7 The Chupacabra Burrito Challenge
6 The Hibernator Breakfast Challenge
5 The Ghost Wings Challenge
4 The Big Fat Fatty Sandwich Challenge (Hollywood)
3 The 10 Pound Monster Burger Challenge
2 The 72 Ounce Steak Challenge
1 The Roast Dinner Banquet Challenge
The Duck Inn in Redditch, England, offers a roast feast fit for a family of four, but what if you’re single with a low self-esteem and a huge appetite? Well, the Duck Inn’s Roast Dinner Banquet might be tailormade for you. The meal consists of an entire golden-roasted turkey, 25 roast potatoes, 25 parsnips, 25 stuffing balls, 25 pigs in blankets, 25 honey-roasted carrots, 25 sprouts, and 25 broccoli and cauliflower heads. And if that wasn’t enough, the whole meal is smothered in an ocean of gravy and cranberry sauce. At £35.00 (about US$50), this meal is quite the steal. And for every banquet they make, the restaurant donates the equivalent food to the local food-bank. If you finish the feast in 45 minutes, you’ll win a place on the Duck Inn’s Wall of Fame, a t-shirt and a certificate. However, it’s safe to say that the odds are not in your favor; so far, only 20 have attempted this challenge and all 20 people have failed miserably.
