How many pounds of Buona Foods’ (link) breaded fried mushrooms can YOU eat in 8 minutes? Do YOU have what it takes to win the top $1000 first place prize? If you’re an Amateur Eater living within 15 miles of Kennett Square, you could devour enough to capture the Local Champion trophy and $200!
Now is your time to enter the National Fried Mushroom Eating Championship to see if YOU are champion material!
The National Fried Mushroom Eating Championship, emceed by Kennett Square’s own Monty “Moe Train” Wiradilaga, is Saturday, September 8 (3PM) in the Special Events Tent at the Mushroom Festival. The 11.5 pound World Record was set four years ago…
Is this the year the record will be broken by YOU?
2017’s contest was a battle to the finish, with competitive legend Dave “Tiger Wings” Brunelli edging out competitive eater and YouTube star Dan “Killer” Kennedy by less than a half pound. Will Western PA’s “Killer” Kennedy get his redemption and bring home the title? Not if WIP Wing Bowl 25 champion, and one of the sport’s all-time best, Bob “Notorious B.O.B.” Shoudt has anything to say about it.
Will the fantastic rookie eating sensation, Nadia White, become the second woman to win the championship? Can 2-time Top 6 Wing Bowl finisher “Snack Jack” Diamond have what it takes to shine? Will Wing Bowl rookie Steve “Barracuda” Hillegass chomp his way to victory? Does local Elsmere armed forces vet Frankie “The Freak” Paul have what it takes to be an operator, and crush Wing Bowl villain Pittsburgh Paulie’s hopes and dreams of bringing the title back to the home of the yellow and black? Will “Tank” McDowell 3-peat the local title, or will we see the rise of a new Kennett Square legend capturing the prized Championship?
Take your place at the table alongside some of the world’s most decorated eaters, and don’t miss your chance to become a legend at the National Fried Mushroom Eating Championship!
