Photos: Sponge cake and filling fly at Twinkie eating contest at Truck Yard
The best way to eat a Twinkie? One bite at a time.
GREENVILLE AVENUE Thank goodness Twinkies didn't go away forever. Then, we couldn't have had Twinkies and Tallboys at the ever-popular Truck Yard on Saturday. A line of contestants were challenged to cram as many Twinkies into their mouths as they could in three minutes, with the winner receiving the coveted (and potentially homemade) Pabst Blue Ribbon trophy.
For the most part, the contest was a blur of sponge cake and filling. But not for Gin Jackson, who took a leisurely approach by eating just 1.5 Twinkies. And looking fabulous doing it.
Winner Chris Schafer scarfed 19 Twinkies, with second place Guy Efune eating 18.
