The Original Fried Pie Shop is partnering with Baker’s Ribs to bring Dallas a tasty competition.
On Sept. 29, Baker’s Ribs will host the first ever National Peach Fried Pie Eating Championship, as sanctioned by All Pro Eating Promotions, the world’s most recognized Independent Competitive Eating Organization.
The event will be hosted at Baker’s Ribs’ Deep Ellum location.
Joe Duncan, Owner, said “Our customers always like to tell us how many pies they have eaten so we thought what a great way to put their mouths to the test and have a Fried Pie Eating Championship. We are all excited about this upcoming tasty battle!”
An Original Fried Pie Shop fried pie is served golden brown in a half-moon shape, so you can hold in a single hand and eat while piping hot. They are made with intensely flavored fillings both sweet and savory folded into fried pie buttermilk crust and deep-fried in 100-percent peanut oil.
All Pro Eating already has confirmation from several of the World’s top Independent Competitive Eaters including Eric “Silo” Dahl, Stephanie “Xanadu” Torres and Jamie “Bear” McDonald in addition to local Competitive Eaters for their involvement with The Original Fried Pie Shop National Peach Fried Pie Eating Championship.
If you think you’ve got what it takes (or rather, gut what it takes), registration will remain open until all available spaces have been filled. Anyone wishing to register or participate can find additional information on the All Pro Eating Promotions website or by contacting Todd Greenwald via email HungryGenius(at)CompetitiveEaters(dot)com
