Unique eating competition on offer near Easton

June 8, 2018 by  

A special event is on the slate for the Easton area , and those who have a strong stomach will have an opportunity to put theirs to the test.

A haggis-eating contest has been planned as part of the Celtic Classic Highland Games and Festival, and the rules for the competition have been kept very simple. The person who can eat one pound of this dish the fastest will be crowned the winner.

The rules state that no seasonings, sauces, or other condiments are allowed to be used, although beverages are permitted to help wash it down. The haggis must be consumed the way it is presented, and an audience of spectators will be on hand to cheer on the eaters.

Along with bragging rights of downing the traditional Scottish oatmeal and offal delicacy, the winner will receive tickets that can be redeemed for $25 worth of food and beverages they can redeem during the festival, and also a souvenir mug. Drinkware and other promotional products for an event such as this can be designed and produced by an area printer.

The Celtic Classic Highland Games and Festival haggis-eating contest will be held on September 28 in Bethlehem, and the final date to register is September 10. The registration fee is $10 per contestant, and anyone who would like more details can find them by visiting the event’s web listing.
