Watch Two Strangers Ask For Bites Of Food [CAN I BITE IT?]

In a new FoodbeastTV series, we have resident drunkard Sean and video intern Hayley bumming free food from strangers. Called Can I Bite It?, the two try to see who can get the most free bites from random people.

We swung by a local college campus too see if anyone would be willing to share their lunch.

Here are the rules the two must abide by:

  1. They cannot say the word “Food.”
  2. They cannot use their hands.

Check out how the two manage to get themselves fed with these pretty heavy handicaps. Place your bets, people. My money’s on the girl who doesn’t reek of alcohol and cigarettes.

An Open Letter To The Guy Who Ate In-N-Out For 30 Days

*If you haven’t read the first article this one is about, read it here first.*

Nast, bro. Straight nast.

As a California native and a self-proclaimed (and unapologetically and unanimously agreed upon) fatboy, I can say with all certainty that despite how much I am obsessed with In-N-Out, I could never eat it 30 days in a row. Not because I would get sick of it or because I’m concerned about health reasons. No, nothing trivial and whiny like that. I wouldn’t do it because I simply respect the shit out of In-N-Out way too much.

Dustin Wang, a 20-year-old student from Virginia recently moved to Southern California in order to attend UCI. According to him, the first thing he got when he landed was an In-N-Out burger. He’s had an outrageously unhealthy obsession with it ever since. Thanks to this obsession, Dustin decided to eat In-N-Out for 30 days straight, and thankfully, he documented his results.

However Dustin leaves a lot to be desired in terms of answers, so I decided to ask Dustin Wang a few of the tough questions that I’m sure are on everybody’s mind.

1. Dude…why?

Why do this to yourself? I understand that you want to see if you’re sick of it by the end, but why did you come to this decision in the first place? Do you really have to eat it for 30 days in a row to know you’re going to get sick of it?

I once ordered 5 tacos from Taco Bell, then I ate three and threw the other two away. I GOT SICK OF THEM MID-MEAL, DUSTIN. MID-FUCKING-MEAL. I’m getting angry with you as I’m typing this, I wish you were my child so I could legally (ish) beat you.

2. How did this affect your poopage?

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 9.44.16 AM

The question everybody wonders, but nobody REALLY wants to know. Not the details at least, but just if there was a difference. Like did you start eating so many burgers that you just started deucing out full ingredients? Lettuce, tomato, patty, onions, buns?

Probably not. You probably just had diarrhea for 30 straight days. Just tell me, did you? No don’t tell me, get outta here with yo nasty ass.

Seriously though, did you?

3. Did you start becoming friendly with the employees?

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 9.49.57 AM

I mean, you have to start learning the names of the people working there after going there continuously for 30 days, right? Did you maybe even fall in love with one of them? I’ve been known to fall in love with fast food employees every now and again so it could happen.

P.S. Myishea, you’re still the hottest In-N-Out employee I’ve ever seen, please respond to my love letters. There’s only 472, don’t be like that. Also, no restraining order can get in the way of love, don’t be ridiculous.

4. Did you ever get high before going? Or did you just eat In-N-Out sober for 30 days like a psycopath?

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 9.52.55 AM

Maybe the first couple of times you weren’t baked, but how do you eat that much In-N-Out that often without using performance enhancing drugs? The only way I’d be able to do that is by getting high off my ass. I’m talkin’ beaker bottom JBL with six tree stems and a slit inline quadruple percolator with an 18 mm disc diffused ash catcher and ice pinchers. BOOM.

Wait, what was I talking about? Something about burgers and weed. Eh, whatever.

5. Did you ever eat multiple meals in one day?

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 9.55.04 AM

This challenge is a lot tougher with In-N-Out than any other fast food place solely because of the very limited menu, so eating multiple meals in one day is tough. That being said, my question is this: did you ever, for example, eat two meals in one day so that you wouldn’t have to eat the next day? Or maybe eat a burger at 12:50 PM then eat another one at 1:00 AM, so that it was technically two meals being eaten at the same time?

Or am I the only scoundrel that thinks like that? Bullshit Dustin, you do too, shut up. Lol, fuckin’ guy.

6. When is the next time you see yourself eating In-N-Out?

After eating it for 30 days straight, how long will you wait until you eat it again? I know I’ve mocked you ever since I started writing this 638 words ago, but I’m still curious to know what the recovery time for something like that would be.

Anyone who has had In-N-Out even once before likely loves the shit out of it, so the recovery time you would require before your next burger could show people how gloriously addicting In-N-Out truly is. Let me know and I might take back some of the meaner things I said. But probably not.

This Restaurant’s 30-Pound Burrito Challenge Has An Unbelievable Prize

Greasy-Burrito-Cover

The reward in an epic eating challenge is usually in the meal itself. That and the prestige. However, if you’re hoping to find a restaurant that has a more tangible reward, this might be it. Brooklyn taqueria Don Chingon raised the stakes slightly higher than a simple name on the wall. If you can finish a massive burrito, you’ll own a part of the restaurant.

How’s that for a challenge?

The burrito in question, though, is pretty formidable. At 30 pounds, the Gran Chingon is more than three feet long. It’s filled with chicken, steak, chorizo, carnitas, cheese, rice, beans and salsa. Imagine having 30 pounds worth of all that in your belly. We usually clock out after 20 pounds of burrito fillings.

If you’re attempting to tackle the Gran Chingon, Don Chingon makes you sign a waiver releasing them from any responsibility of death or illness from the enormous dish. Sheesh.

Food & Wine presents the rules as such:

  • You pay $150 to enter.
  • Eat the massive 30-pound burrito.
  • Drink 1 Ghost Pepper Margarita.
  • Finish everything in an hour or less. The clock starts when the burrito is touched.
  • No bathroom breaks of any kind, under penalty of forfeit.

The man or woman who completes these terms will be entitled to 10 percent ownership of Don Chingon. Ownership, however, will not be transferable upon death. Which, from the looks of that challenge, may be a few years closer to whomever enters.

Sounds like a pretty impossible feat with a pretty awesome payoff. Who’s in?

Bartender Challenged To Create A Three-Penis Cocktail, Nails It [WATCH]

Three-Penis-Swizzle

The League kicked off its final season this week. While we’re all bummed at the office that it’s nearly over, let’s take a minute to appreciate how introduced us to Three-Penis Wine.

In a cocktail challenge Chicago bartender Michael Rubel of Henry’s Swing Club is asked to make a drink out of the infamous rice wine. A daunting task with a pretty potent beverage. Three Penis Wine is fermented from the genitals of three different animals: deer, seal and dog. It’s a Chinese liquor that’s said to increase male virility and potency.

Definitely not something you’d drink casually.

Watch as Rubel composes a tasty drink out of the infamous liquor. He calls it “Three-Penis Swizzle.”

Watch the Hilarious Reactions of 1,000 People Eating Ghost Chilies at the Same Time

1000-peppers

Looking for a bit of schadenfreude on a rainy Friday? Look no further than this hilarious — likely sponsored by milk (we see you) — video, which features 1,000 people gathering to eat ghost chilies, one of the hottest peppers in the world. It rates about 1,000,000 heat units on the Scoville scale, which measures the amount of heat-inducing capsaicin.

And since your brain thinks your tongue is on fire when you eat spicy food, well, you can imagine how hot things got at the event, the brainchild of an organization called Chili Klaus, which sells dried versions of some of the hottest peppers in the world, including the ghost chili and the scotch bonnet.

After the thousand people consumed the peppers, the challenge was simple: just keep the pepper down. While milk was provided, those poor, red, teary-eyed faces make our tongues ache in sympathy.  Check out the video below.

Would you take the ghost chili challenge?

The Competitive Eater’s Guide to Maximizing Candy Consumption on Halloween

halloweencandyleader

It’s Halloween tomorrow. You know what that means. No, not doing candy shooters. Not going out in your skimpiest “sexy candy corn” outfit. Nah, it means it’s time to get chocolate wasted — get this — on actual chocolate. What, did you think trick or treating was just for little kids? Please. This year, Halloween is for the grown-ups, and we’re here to teach you how to do it right.

Foodbeast enlisted the help of world-ranked competitive eater Naader “Freak8r” Reda to map out the best way to eat as much Halloween candy as humanly possible in one sitting. The way we figure, we’re finally old enough to do it without anyone telling us not to. So go on, make five-year-old you proud.

_______________

Step 1: Eat light beforehand

halloweencandy1

If you want to face your sugary feast pro eater-style, start by eating light the day before and morning of; we’re talking protein shakes and leafy greens. This way, not only is your digestive system nice and clean, but you’re also starving by trick-or-treating time. Perfect for some primo candy-binging.

_______________

Step 2: Fruity stuff first

halloweencandy2

As tempted as you’ll be to reach for a Snickers, chocolates tend to be hard to chew and even harder to swallow. For maximum efficiency, stick to fruity and sour candies first — think Mike & Ikes and Warheads and lollipops. Indulge occasionally in a Reese’s Cup for the jolt of protein and fiber to help temper the inevitable sugar crash.

Step 3: Keep warm liquids on hand

Reda recommends using liquids only sparingly (too much fills your stomach and slows you down). But if you must drink, warm beverages like tea and coffee aid digestion.

Step 4: Food coma

If you’re able to follow steps 1 through 3, Reda says, you could “probably eat for over an hour and have a very interesting Halloween night.” Just be prepared to sleep in and feel awful the next morning. You know what they say, “You know you had a good weekend when you’re still recovering two days later.”

Watch This Man Swallow A Human Toe

toe-shot

For those who’ve ever wondered what there is to do in Canada besides hockey and riding meese, just head over to The Downtown Hotel in Yukon where shooting back preserved human toes is apparently a thing. Yes, for $5, you can ask the bartender for a severed human toe soaked in a shot of whiskey, aka the Sourtoe Cocktail.

Since 1973, (thanks to Louie Liken, a 1920’s rum runner who lost his toe) patrons have taken on the challenge of downing said cocktail while letting the toe touch their lips. However, if you accidentally swallow the toe, it’s a $500 fine.

In the video below, a brave soul known as Josh Clark is featured drinking the infamous shot of Yukon Gold whiskey poured over a preserved human toe. Clark swiftly takes down the whisky, then proceeds to swallow the entire toe, even moving it around his mouth to properly consume it. After chasing it all with beer, he triumphantly throws five Canadian bills on the table.

The fine has been raised to $2,500 since then, and the bar is currently on the lookout for a spare toe.

Togo’s Challenges Patrons to Consume 2-Foot-Long Sandwich

24inchPastrami-togos

Maybe that guy who caused a media uproar over the 11-inch sandwich at Subway should mosey on over to Togo’s. You’ve got to admit, Togo’s call to action challenging customers to devour a 2-foot-long sandwich (you get a free hat if you win, yay!) would be enough to satisfy even the most critical of eaters.

The “Pastrami Pounder Challenge” runs from January 14 – February 19, in celebration of January 14th’s National Pastrami Day. Participating guests are given 30 minutes to finish the monstrous sandwich decked out with 1 pound of Togo’s house pastrami, lettuce, tomatoes and mustard.

Coming into the next month, Togo is also inviting those participating to Instagram photos of their pastrami sandwich accompanied by the tags #Togos and #PastramiChallenge. Every week during the challenge, the company will give away prizes to the most “unique” photos, such as mini speakers, water bottles, earbuds, etc. Their Instagram “grand prize winner” will receive free Togo’s sandwiches for an entire year. I guess this justifies being that annoying person (everyone) who takes photos of their food at the table.

Nearly 150 people participated in the Pastrami Pounder challenge last year; let’s just hope no sticklers show up with measuring tape this time around.
