Details:Kolaches (aka "kol?če") -- "a type of pastry consisting of fillings ranging from fruits to cheeses and/or meats inside a bread roll." They sound good; they are good. So good that Kyle decided to see how many he could eat. The Kolache Factory has them and Kyle "the Kolache Killer" Kilgore kills them.
Kyle ordered up eight (8) to start:
one (1) bacon & cheese
four (4) pepperoni & mushroom
two (2) BBQ beef
one (1) Kolache of the Month, "Not So Sloppy Joe"
A judge called "start", Kyle put the pedal to the metal and began pummeling pastries. The first was gone in sixty (60) seconds. The sequel: another one gone in another sixty (60) seconds. In fact, Kyle held the one-kolache-per-minute pace through the first seven -- Angelina would have been impressed.
At about the eight (8) minute mark, and after two (2) more kolaches were acquired, Kyle began back at it. Number nine was just off of the pace. Then, number ten: the mightiest kolache yet, the little kolache that could. It fought back, determined to rob Kyle of his victory, but the scuffle was short lived; it turned out to be the little kolache that could not. Kyle kicked back this final kolache just before the eleven minute mark for a low, low time of ten (10) minutes and fifty-two (52) seconds. Ahh, nothing to do now but sit back and savor the flavor of the little buns now in his oven.
Most hush puppies consumed (Previous record)
When:Thursday, 18 Aug 2005
Details:Kyle munched down twenty-four (24) of the deep-fried bread nuggets called "hush puppies" from the Long John Silver's seafood eatery. In a strong start, Kyle had about one-half of the challenge completed in an astounding five (5) minutes. Soon, though, he hit the ever-present food challenge wall. Looking down at the remaining unimposing puppies, Kyle sat befuddled, one hand resting over the side of his face. He pondered how the small little side-dish treats could be threatening to turn this, his maiden challenge, into a failed attempt. With about six (6) hush puppies to go he exclaimed that he "did not know that a hush puppy could be so heavy"; a perplexed look washed over his face and his eyebrows wove into a frown. Then, the proverbial second wind came to Kyle and he attacked the defenseless pups with renewed vigor, drowning a few of them in ice water before sending them to their demise. Success! After thirty-three minutes, Kyle victoriously threw back the last bite of the two dozen hush puppies in fine fashion. That's twenty-four (24) free hush puppies the easy way. Only mild concern about regurgitating the quiet treats arose, though people entertained thoughts of power-chucking the meal at random targets on the ride back from the restaurant.
