A Man Died From Doughnut-Eating Challenge

A doughnut-eating contest in Denver turned deadly for one man.

Travis Malouff, 42, joined a Denver doughnut shop’s eating challenge and tried to eat a half-pound glazed doughnut in less than a minute and a half. It’s extremely a difficult challenge. Unfortunately for Malouff, it led to a tragic ending. He died from the doughnut-eating contest.

Witness Julia Edelstein said that the mood was festive at Voodoo Doughnuts that night of Malouff’s unexpected death. Voodoo Doughnuts is known for its creative and colorful $3-doughnuts. It was around closing time already, and people waiting for their turn to buy doughnuts were even singing and dancing to the blaring music in the shop. Edelstein later heard a shop employee announcing the eating challenge, and asking the crowd to give Malouff applause.
