Put your taste­buds to test

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

DO YOU think you can han­dle the heat?

Cot­tone’s in Gat­ton is of­fer­ing a new food chal­lenge that is push­ing peo­ple’s taste buds to the lim­its.

The 10 in 10 Hot Wing Chal­lenge will pit chal­lengers against a plate of chicken wings with the chance to claim a jack­pot of cash.

But these wings are mixed with a “ridicu­lously hot chilli ex­tract” that the es­tab­lish­ment claims is rated at five mil­lion on the Scov­ille scale, which mea­sures the spici­ness and heat of food.

They need to be eaten within ten min­utes with­out touch­ing your face or eat­ing or drink­ing any­thing else.

Pun­ters will then have to wait an ex­tra five min­utes with the same re­stric­tions be­fore of­fi­cially get­ting ticked off.

It costs $28 to en­ter but com­plet­ing it will see your name placed on the Wall of Le­gends and your money back in your pocket.

From ev­ery failed at­tempt $10 goes into the jack­pot which is won if the record time, which cur­rently sits around three-and-a-half min­utes, is beaten by a new chal­lenger.

“It’s more of an en­durance of your mind,” venue man­ager Ka­hael Mca­van said.

“It’s a good chance to see who out of your mates is men­tally the strong­est.”
