Ready for a Food Challenge? Here’s What the Treasure Valley Has
Hope you brought your appetite!
Do you ever watch the show Man vs Food? The show started with a man named Adam Richman. He would travel the world taking on all of these crazy food challenges. He's since retired from the show and the new host and contender is Casey Webb, but the premise is still the same... don't let the food win.
I'll admit, there have been plenty of times while watching the show when I've said out loud, "Oh I can do that!" Maybe not when it comes to the hot wings or exotic food challenges, but I could definitely throw down with some of these hefty portion challenges. There are just certain foods that we can consume ungodly amounts of, am I right? Pizza, burgers, fries are just a few of mine.
If you're into food challenges, there are several you could take on right here in our area. Many have great prizes like T-shirts, discounts, gift cards, photos on the Wall of Fame and more. Perhaps you can have your own local version of Man vs Food. Just insert your name into "_____ vs Food", make it a hashtag and get to eatin!
