A well-designed food challenge can be very beneficial to a restaurant’s marketing campaign, and as time goes on that challenge may actually evolve into a famous and well-known symbol of that particular restaurant. This is rare, but there are multiple examples of nationally and even globally recognized food challenges that are the first things people think of when they hear the terms “food challenge” and “Man v Food” (the television show). I have been doing food challenges since 2010 and over the years I have talked to thousands of people about different challenges I have done and ones that I haven’t done. There are a few challenges that people always bring up no matter where I am at, and these challenges each have had thousands of attempts because everyone knows about them. They each started as a simple challenge years ago and have steadily grown into the legendary eating challenges that they are today. Here are the world’s most successful food challenges:
