ESPER TAKES STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE CROWN!
Great news! The Mattituck Lions Club World Strawberry Shortcake Eating Championship returns to Major League Eating’s slate of sanctioned eating contests. Saturday June 15th, people. Save the date and sign up today.
At the 2018 Championship, Carmen Cincotti ate 22lb of strawberry shortcake in eight minutes to set a new world record in the discipline. That record is on the line this year and one imagines that it will fall and that it will fall badly, such is the year-on-year growth and development of Major League Eaters across the board. What in 2018 seemed unimaginable today feel almost normal. That’s progress.
Do you dare dream of setting a new world record in the strawberry shortcake discipline? Does an afternoon dining on this summery delight in the warm Long Island air make your heart skip a beat? Do you simply want to watch the best in the world do what they do so well? This is The Mattituck Lions Club World Strawberry Shortcake Eating Championship. At the table or in the crowd—don’t you ever miss it!
$3,500 TOTAL PRIZE PURSE! 1st - $1,750 2nd - $900 3rd - $500 4th - $250 5th - $100
This contest will take place at 5pm local time on Saturday June 15, 2019, at the Mattituck Lions Club Strawberry Festival, located at 1175 Route 48, Mattituck, NY 11952
