Sweet Sweet ConfectionsBear Silber at Sweet Sweet Confections sent us a mail letting us know that he’s running a competition to help promote his new candy store. Winners will receive $50 in cash and $25 worth of candy.

So what do you have to do to win this nice little prize..?

“Eat the most Sweet Sweet Smores Bars in 3 minutes”.

Now I’m all for helping out up and coming confectioners, but I’m undecided as to whether this is a completely genius idea or utterly stupid. I think I’m coming down on the side of ‘utterly stupid’, given what happened when a US radio station held a ‘hold your wee for a Wii‘ competion.

Obviously, you need to buy the candy from Sweet Sweet Confections in the first place – and I don’t even want to think about the health implications. In fact, I’m not enitrely convinced the competition would be legal here in Europe.

But given that winners have to video themselves eating the chocolate, it’s sure to generate a few laughs. Not to mention the odd heart attack and sugar induced coma.

So feel free to enter, but Chocablog can’t be held responsible for the consequences. And don’t come running to us if your legs fall off in a sudden attack of diabetes.
