Only in America?

The Krispy Kreme challenge image

I don't like them anyway....

  • That makes me feel a bit sick.
  • Lord! I eat one and I feel sick, they're so sugary and fatty.

    As muppley said - why??!!

  • If it were proper, jam doughnuts, I might be tempted.... (but not twelve, for god's sake!)

  • RW USA have done a big feature in their magazine about this.
  • I know, rm - that's where I've linked to!
  • Not the website. The actual magazine. It was in their race review section last month.
    The next challenge is tomorrow.
  • I think I've seen this on Man v Food, not my kind of thing. Stuffing your face and racing is not my kid of combination, has proven deadly to my stomach.
  • That amount of sugar alone would send me bonkers for days!

    Kastenlauf sounds like a bit of a lauf - see what i did there???..... try the veal! imageimage

  • Didn't there used to be a beer mile race, drink a pint, run a 400m lap, repeat until 1 mile and 4 pints finished? Fancied it but haven't heard of it for a good few years, probably a H&S issue...
  • Krispy Kreme donutsare truely nasty... I really can't undrstand their popularity.

    When you clik on the advert in Wilkie's link, I like that the dummy email address they've used is for john@doe.co.uk..... Isn't John Doe the term used for a random un-identified dead body?!

  • I have a very sweet tooth but Krispy Kreme donuts never did it for me. I get a stitch just by drinking too much water so I would be stuffed with this one. if you could do the 4 miles and then pig out on 12 sweet treats of your choice then that would be heaven.

  • A friend of mine tells a story about the time he left some Krispy Kremes in his desk drawer and forgot about them. Three months later they looked exactly the same.....

  • Eating challenges are not big and they're not clever!

    (But I still hold the record for eating an octuple eggburger from Greasy Joe's burger van in 1989, as far as I'm aware.)

  • DTB - Someone posted a video on YouTube for a Maccy D's happy meal left on their coffee table for a month (or maybe longer). Same story.
  • The beer race still exists - its called the chunder mile but its a university thing as far as I know...there are some vids in you tube I think - looks grusome, but the runners are VERY fast!
  • Birmingham Uni used to do "Micks Caff" race when I was there in the 80's.

    You used to down two pints of beer run about two miles to Micks Caff eat a full English including a mug of tea run back to the Uni and then down two more pints.

    I never won but was second twice, but our department won the race two years running.

    LOL!

    No sense of humour, some people!

  • I've read the full article and it did make  chukle, sadly they only give the plain doughnuts.

    One of the best races in the USA  is Miller half marathon were all finishers get a six pack of Miller genuine draught. The funny thing about this race is that all the homeless hide in the bushes at the finish and try to steal the six packs from the finishing area.

    There is also the Hooters half marathon in Florida were at the end you are greeted with Chicken wings and beer.

  • I like Krispy Kremes. Not sure I could eat 12 though. 6 maybe.
  • Dunkin Donuts are better!
  • Chicken wings and beer ... not what I would be expecting at the end of the Hooters half mara image

    I did the beer race for three years in a row at Surrey Uni. Teams of three, bound together, mixed gender, half a pint at pretty much every pub in Guildford. Untying yourselves meant disqualification, which was interesting when we needed to empty our bladders.

    I have no idea what position my teams were in by the time we got back to campus,and was too pissed to care.

  • I like Kripsy Kremes. But two at a time would be my limit. And definitely not pre-, post- or during running.

    I misread that as an octopus egg burger!
  • The challenge image does sound particularly revolting. I've eaten Krispy Kremes in the US and the UK (although not a regular occurrence, far too sweet for me) and have to say you wouldn't think they were the same product the UK ones are gross.
