If you're an avid follower of this blog, you may already know how many times we've mentioned the inspiration for this blog is Adam Richman's show, Man Vs. Food. We, especially fell in love with the mouth-watering sinful burgers and other mind-blowing comfort food he features there. (Which is our bucket list is to visit those places he's featured). Anyway, the show Man Vs. Food is basically about these outrageous food and then towards the end they will hold an eating contest to see if Man or Food will win.
This is how it felt like when I attended Burger King Philippines' Battle of the Stacks King Eating Challenge!
But first, presenting the real starts of the event...
The BK Stacks:

The BK Stacks are Burger King's finest new members in their menu. Flame-grilled patties with melted American cheese in between each patty, topped with crispy bacon, blanketed with BK Stacks sauce and sandwiched together in soft, toasted sesame-seed bun! The burger didn't look imposing at first sight, but a closer look revealed that the all beef patties would be a formidable foe to any opponent!
Now, there are 4 members of this new manly group:
- Dude - Single Stack
- Boss - Double Stack
- Chief - Triple Stack
- King - Quad Stack
So the question is, which one of these will you be??
Back to the challenge!
The event was hosted by Sam YG and Ms. Issa Litton, both of whom made the event livelier than it already was! Look at them goofing around and having fun at the stage and Sam YG devouring some BK stacks! (He’s the Burger King Celebrity Ambassador by the way). And if you look closely in one of the photos above, he even got a strip of bacon stuck in his mustache! Hilarious!
This time, let's meet the challengers!

The contestants were all ready for a boxing match of devouring as much BK Stacks as they can within 15 minutes. And as if the event needed to be livelier, Burger King had Sam YG and Issa Litton host the event. It was definitely an afternoon of munching, shouting, cheering, and lots and lots of burger patties!
Sweats has been shed, cups of large drinks has been gulped down, BK Stacks disappearing left and right. At the end of it all, there was one man standing. And that was Edward "The Burger Slayer" Garcia of Bajac Bajac, Olongapo City! His trip to Manila (and being the only one in costume) proved to be all worth it! Congratulations King Edward!
