ˇTenemos noticias buenas! El Croquetazo At Calle Ocho Presented By Catalina will return for Major League Eating's 2018 slate of sanctioned eating championships! Major League Eaters from near and far are warmly encouraged to sign up to compete in this annual battle of man versus man versus woman versus woman versus croqueta over eight minutes of intense competition.

At the inaugural 2017 Championship event, Carmen Cincotti ate 158 Catalina croquetas to set the first-ever world record in the croqueta discipline. Cincotti was disciplined, quick and unrelenting in his quest for croqueta glory. His victory set in motion a dominant 2017 season for the man who would rise to become the world's #2-ranked eater. Cincotti's record will be on the line at the 2018 El Croquetazo Championship. If you dare to attempt to break it, sign up for your chance to compete!

For those still unfamiliar with the croqueta, it is time you got schooled and started eating them. They are delicious. Catalina croquetas are the world's best example of this savory Cuban delicacy, often enjoyed as a snack, often two or three at a time, perhaps with Cuba's trademark and addictive rich and sweet coffee.

Of course, prior to March 2017, no man or woman had ever imagined consuming 158 croquetas in eight minutes. Now we can. A benchmark has been set and the challenge has been issued! This is the 2018 El Croquetazo At Calle Ocho Presented By Catalina! Be at the table or in the crowd on March 11, 2018, at Miami's famed Called Ocho Festival to make—or to witness—history! Don't miss it!
