VooDoo Doughnuts Denver: Man Dies During Eating Challenge
VooDoo Doughnuts may be in the midst of a controversy now, following a death over the weekend that resulted from a popular eating challenge at the late-night bakery.
How sad, really. Eating contests seem like they should be all fun, right? Over the weekend, one took a tragic turn.
Early Sunday morning, a 42-year-old man choked to death while partaking in the 'Tex-Ass Challenge,' where participants attempt to consume a large doughnut in under 80 seconds in exchange for a free meal, reports Seattle Pi.
Are these eating contests the new cinnamon challenge? Or is this a one-time sad, freak accident?
One Google search proves that VooDoo's Tex-Ass Challenge is pretty well known. See the challenge attempted by a YouTuber here:
