MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A time-honored Fourth of July tradition is eating a lot of food – sometimes as much as you can. In Coney Island, New York, Joey Chestnut gobbled up a record-breaking 70 hot dogs at the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest. Here in Myrtle Beach, Croissants held their Fifth Annual Cupcake Eating Contest.

Joseph Menchetti, the winner of this year’s contest, devoured an impressive 32 cupcakes in five minutes, earning him the title of Myrtle Beach’s 2016 “Cupcake Champion,” according to a news release from Croissants Bistro and Bakery. Menchetti was awarded a trophy, $500 cash, and a two-night stay at the Breakers Resort. Ryan Siciliano placed second with 27 cupcakes consumed, and Sam Taylor took the bronze with 25 cupcakes.

This year’s contest was held at Broadway at the Beach, and supported a favorite local charity.

“This is our fifth year, it’s a lot of fun for the community, everybody loves it,” said MC Michael Megliaola. “Fourth of July – Nathan’s got the hot dog thing going on, we got the cupcake thing going on, and also it supports the Reggie Sanders Foundation for autistic children."
