Bleeding Heart Bakery Vegan Cupcake Eating Contest

It’s been a while since I’ve gone to an eating contest that wasn’t sponsored by Major League Eating. Actually I’ve only been to a couple of contests ever that weren’t “professional” eaters. But, when one of my favorite bakeries, Bleeding Heart Bakery Chicago, hosts a vegan cupcake eating contest just down the block from me, you know I’m there.

The vegan eating contest was fun (and free cupcakes were awesome) but I forgot how slow paced contests can be when the people eating don’t do it for a living. Still, it was fun to watch though as people pushed through, as people gave up, as people just ate to eat. And as one little girl popped whole mini cupcakes in her mouth to win her division (she could take on Joey Chestnut, I swear).

There were five vegan eating contests throughout the afternoon: a kids division, a most creative eater division, and 2 adult matches with a head to head eat off between the two winners. The last match was no contest when the winner of the second round gave up after one…but despite the guaranteed victory, round one’s winner pushed through and finished every one of his cupcakes.

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
