Despite the incredible rise in food cost, there are still a few competitive food challenges in Connecticut in 2024. Most of the famous food challenges that you've seen on Man vs Food are still around, but I found a brutal Polish Food Challenge yesterday in East Windsor.

Almost every dish features cabbage, very earthy, simple, doughy, with meat, it's so comforting. Eating five pounds of Polish food in 30 minutes seem like something you can do?
