How many chicken nuggets could you crush in one sitting? For me, that number stands at 40 nuggets in a single go. (We don’t talk about that night.)
Competitive eater Molly Schuyler, though, just blew everyone else’s personal records out of the water. During a Twitch livestream of the Foodbeast Challenger League, the world’s top-ranked female eater cruised her way through 360 Burger King nuggets in a single sitting. That’s 11.5 pounds of fried chicken, or 15,300 calories, for those counting.
For context, the previous mark using the same chain’s nuggets we could find was set by Darron Eats on YouTube, who ate 300 in roughly 50 minutes. Schuyler ate 60 more than he did, finishing in 1 hour, 14 minutes, and 33 seconds.
Schuyler was honestly unfazed by the amount of nuggets, and probably could have eaten a lot more. The tougher obstacle was the texture of the nuggets, which got hard fast once they went cold. A combination of dunking them in water and drowning them in ketchup helped her grind through all 360 nuggets. Had they all stayed warm, it’s anybody’s guess as to how many more she could have taken down.
This wasn’t the only eating feat set on the Twitch livestream. During it, competitive eater “Killer” Dan Kennedy muscled his way through a whopping 54 Winchell’s Donuts, while Naader “FreakEating” Reda downed 100 Mother’s Cookies with a gallon of milk.
