The Stag Vs Food Challenge

We’ve recently launched Stag Vs Food as one our great new stag party activities in 2017. So it was only right that I go and to take it on. I headed to the fantastic West Cork town of Clonakilty to take on the Stag Vs Food Challenge.

I left the office full of confidence proud knowing I have a decent appetite and love a good fry up. That confidence left me very quickly when I saw the waitress coming down with what I was about to eat. She even had to give me a bigger table in the pub as it wouldn’t all fit on the normal pub tables lads.

So this massive fry up consisted of:

  • 5 Rashers
  • 5 Sausages
  • 4 Fried Tomatoes
  • 4 Fried Eggs
  • 5 Hash Browns
  • 5 Bits of Clonakilty Black Pudding (The Best Black Pudding in my opinion)
  • Bowl of Mushrooms
  • Bowl of Beans
  • A Bowl of Chips
  • 9 Slices of bread and toast (4 slices of white toast, 2 slices of white bread, 3 slices of Soda bread)
  • Glass of Orange Juice
  • Pot of Tea

Firstly, I took a moment to try and think of some tactics and then just ploughed into it. I had a timer of course with any good food challenge. There was no time limit to finish but I wanted to post a good time. I cleared the plate of food, the bowls of beans and mushrooms in 27 minutes lads. I’m not a huge fan of mushrooms so to get them down the hatch was a real struggle.

Starting to feel full at this stage I was still happy to continue. But what lay ahead was chips, bread and more bread. I tried combining the two into a chip buttie. It felt like the bread instantly expanded on hitting my stomach. The Food Baby was starting to show lads.

I had hit the wall then. I struggled on for a few more slices but ultimately failed in my attempt to complete this challenge. The after picture says it all.

I called it just shy of 41 minutes of solid eating because The Stag Vs Food Challenge had beaten me. I got my tactics wrong I was told by the chef and sure I didn’t have a crowd to cheer me on either. This stag party activity however I thought would be great craic with the lads, having a few beers and watching the groom struggle on.

A huge thanks again to Mick Finns pub in Clonakilty for having me. I’ll be back for round 2 and hopefully this time come away with the win!
