A whole loaf of bread in one bite?

Like the Saltine cracker challenge, a similar challenge exists called the Wonderbread challenge. Another clever marketing scheme perhaps, because really any standard sized white bread will do.

The object: Eat two slices of bread in two minutes. No drinks, no butter...just plain ol' untoasted bread. Sounds easy. That's what most people say. The most common first reaction? "I've eaten entire sandwiches in that amount of time!" Maybe so, but they were probably slathered in mayonnaise or strawberry jam (or both). Like the saltine challenge, a little moisture goes a long way.

Here's a link to a great story about a guy who tried to eat a whole loaf of Wonderbread in ONE BITE. Somewhere Dr. Atkins is rolling over in his low-carb grave.

wait a minute, I just came across this one again and realized something. You are saying two slices in two minutes? That can't be right. Back when we were first talking about it I did three in one minute. Just to be sure I wen't downstairs and did two, only took 45 sec. And just so you know, two screws up my throat as much as 3.

The trick is roll the bread into a ball it makes it less sticky and you can down the piece in a bite or two, using this method you just might get a loaf down in a minuet. one bite may be a bit much though
