Apple Pie Eating Contest
It was an intense 5 minutes for 6 competitors who were devouring an apple pie each to be crowned the winner. Check out the appetizing video near the bottom of this page.
The contestants were pretty full, but none as much as the first place winner Mike Lee - who completed nearly 97% of his Apple Pie. Thank you again to The Flaky Tart at 711 Mount Pleasant for providing fresh and delicious apple pies.
