Are you always hungry? Do you love burritos? Do you think you could eat a 1kg burrito in one sitting? Then this is the challenge for you. The Mad Mex Big Burrito Challenge is back, and anyone who is game can try to tackle this large Mexican specialty. Individuals who are able to eat the burrito walk home with an authentic wrestling mask custom made from Mad Mex in Mexico.
On the 4th of May we were invited along to try the 1kg big burrito for ourselves. Our one and only Lee from Adelaide Food Central completed the challenge and ate his burrito in 8 mins, which was an amazing effort and put him on the leader board. His top tips for tackling this large Mexican burrito is:
1. Prepare yourself mentally, and listen to songs such as ‘Eye of the Tiger’
2. Before the challenge do not drink lots of water, so you do not fill up
3. Nominate a mate to take on the challenge via www.madmex.com.au/bigburrito
4. Try not to unwrap the whole burrito from the foil as it may fall out
The Mad Mex Burrito Challenge will take place in all stores worldwide from 24th of April until 28th of May. I recommend giving it a try, if you dare.
