It’s summertime and every state or town has their own festivals and restaurants that have eating contests.
Most people have heard about Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest, but there are other sanctioned contests you may not have heard about.
According to Major League Eating, Denver has The World Burrito Championship. If you like pepperoni, check out the West Virginia Three Rivers Festival Pepperoni Roll Eating Contest. In New Orleans, The Acme Oyster Eating World Championship is a big deal.
But how about entering a contest eating Mayonnaise, jalapeno peppers, chili or buffalo wings? There are also more appealing items like donuts, MoonPies and ice cream.

Remember, competitive eating is dangerous and should not be attempted by anyone unless you are professionally trained.
