A bit of chocolate with your cuppa?

Watch Naader 'Freak8r' Reda do a pound of chocolate while having a nice hot drink.

Remember when Rake & Herald competitive eating editor Naader 'Freak8r' Reda took on that bloody massive bar of chocolate?

Well, clearly he hasn't lost the taste for the stuff and we've got the footage to prove it.

Admittedly, this time it's a 1-lb (0.5 kg) bar as opposed to a 5-lb jobbie, but that's still a whopping 2,000 calories in one tea break (or coffee break as the case may be).

I also have no idea what a Candy Cane Bar is, but I've got a feeling it's a bit bigger than a Twix.

Or a Picnic, come to think of it.

Not that whatever it is proved much of a match for Freak8r.

But then, this is the man who currently holds 78 scarfing records on RecordSetter and is still the undisputed Number One Food Challenger in the World.

Need I say more?


So take it way, Freak8r!

Nice music, by the way.

The above vid is embedded here on the food-fighting-tastic Rake & Herald from Freak8r's YouTube channel, which you are strongly advised to have a good old mooch round here. Seriously, he's flippin' ace.

WARNING! Competitive eating can be dangerous. As well as potentially lethal choking hazards there is also the possibility of poisoning yourself, something that could lead to hospitalisation, permanent health damage and even death. Consequently, the Rake & Herald does not recommend you emulate the above video(s) yourself. Seriously. We are NOT joking. You have been warned.
