Do you ever stop to think and appreciate how fortunate we are to exist at a moment in time when there are competitive eating challenges for all tastes? There are giant ramen challenges, secret nacho challenges and even 5kg cakes delivered straight to your hotel room.
Now, in our own backyard, a Sunshine Coast bakery has challenged visitors to complete a monstrous 1kg donut.
The $20 behemoth is served up by the folks at Kenilworth Bakery and comes stuffed with your choice of jam, Nutella or custard. But while it’s already a bargain, you’ll get your lobster back and a plaque on the bakery’s wall if you polish off the lot.
But before you go getting overly confident, it’s worth noting that it’s not as easy as it sounds: It reportedly takes around two hours to get through the sugary beast (though a few legends have polished it off in less than five minutes), and a handful og punters who’ve had a crack at it since it launched last year have finished.
If you reckon you’re up for the challenge, come prepared. Because of the, er, specialised nature of the dessert, you’ll need to send bakery staff a message via their Facebook page the day before you intend on taking it on to ensure they’re ready for you.
Good luck. You’re gonna need it.
