The 2019 Malted Barley World Pretzel Eating Championship

Location: Providence, RI
Date: 06-08-2019
Winner: Geoffrey Esper, with 26 Malted Barley Pretzels in 8 Min!


Major League Eating is proud to announce an addition to our 2019 slate of sanctioned eating championships. Ladies and gentlemen, make way in your heart and in your stomach for the first ever Malted Barley World Pretzel Eating Championship. Major League Eaters from around the world are warmly encouraged to sign up for the chance to compete in this history-making event.

A world record will be set in the pretzel discipline at this championship over eight minutes of grueling competition. But what will the record be? And who will set it? Will you set it? Will someone else? And if the answer is, “Yeah, probably someone else,” why are you settling for less than first before you’ve taken your first bite of a delicious Malted Barley pretzel? Perhaps you need a good look in the mirror. Perhaps you’re a realist in an ever-more hyperbolic world. It’s hard to say.

What we do know is this—the 2019 Malted Barley World Pretzel Eating Championship is soon upon us. At the table or in the crowd, don’t you ever miss it!
