Fiesta Pack Challenge

Did you know that Del Taco sells a Fiesta Pack? What's a Fiesta Pack you ask? A Fiesta Pack is meant to be a very meaty family size meal. Just $8.99 buys you 6-1/2 pound Bean & Cheese Burritos and 6 Regular Tacos. Can you see where this is going yet? Read on...

Monday night after the ward FHE at the beach I followed Katie Hatch, the trifecta, and friends, to the local Del Taco where Katie would be the lone participant in the Fiesta Pack Challenge. The challenge was that if Katie could scarf down an entire Fiesta Pack in just one hour, Tiffany would give her $100.

But was it worth the price? I don't think so. Katie started out strong and with a smile on her face. But about halfway into it, she started feeling the weight of the beans and began trying several creative techniques to get that food to sit still. There was sitting, standing, laying, pacing and all the while I was snapping pictures. I'm such a bad friend!

After 45 minutes of a more than valiant effort, she decided to forfeit the $100 and stop binging. And although she didn't finish the challenge, I was quite impressed that she managed to throw down 5 whole burritos and 4-1/2 tacos. Way to go Katie. I am also happy to report that there was a re-appearance of those 5 burritos and 4-1/2 tacos later that night. Katie is feeling much better now.

I love this girl and I don't even know her. She should have gotten the 100 bucks anyways.

I agree with the first comment. She definitely deserves that $100, holy cow! I love me some burritos, but ooooh I couldn't do that.
