This Country Bakery Is Challenging Hungry People To Finish Their 1kg Doughnut

You won't have to eat for a week aftwards.

The ‘world famous’ Kenilworth Country Bakery can be found about a 45-minute drive from Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. The bakery has everything you’d expect from a bakery in regional Australia, you’ve got coffee, pies, sandwiches, wraps, as well as allergen-friendly goods. But right now, people are flocking to the Kenilworth Country Bakery for doughnuts—specifically a doughnut that weighs in at a whopping 1kg.

The Kenilworth Country Bakery 1kg challenge is happening right now. All you have to do is pre-order your doughnut—there’s a choice of chocolate, or strawberry ring, ‘Beesting’, jam and cream, custard and cream, as well as a Nutella and cream option—pick it up, and then film yourself demolishing the whole 1kg doughnut all by yourself.

If you pass the test, Kenilworth Country Bakery will refund what you paid into your account.

The doughnuts range in price from $20 to $25.

Order your doughnut at the Kenilworth Country Bakery website.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
