Doughheads Eating Challenge

Newcastle Show X Doughheads Eating Challenge

 1.25kg of doughnut goodness, 20 minutes and the chance to WIN a year's supply of Doughheads!

Together with the Newcastle Regional Show we want to find Newcastle's Doughnut Eating Champion! So if you think you've got what it takes, read on below to find out how to take the crown. 


How does it work?

To be in the running for a shot to become Newcastle's Doughnut Eating Champion any competitor can purchase a 'Challenge Ticket' through our shop (TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE). This ticket entitles the competitor to the opportunity to come to Doughheads and attempt to eat the 1.25kg 'doughnut cake'.
The competitor must consume as much of the Doughnut Cake as possible within the allocated 20 minutes. A staff member of Doughheads will time the competitor and if successful in finishing the challenge, we will record the time alongside your entry. If the competitor is unable to completely finish the Doughnut Cake, the leftovers will be weighed and recorded on the entry form.
Heats will run at the following dates and times in store at Doughheads:
Sunday 23rd February at 2pm
Saturday 29th February at 2pm
Sunday 1st March at 11am and 2pm
