Attendees eat up Fest fun
Also in line was Skyelar Scott. Recovering from the two minutes of fast peach eating, the 7-year-old looked at her hands and commented, “I’m slimy.”
Ruston High students Linda Cross and Cody McCullin also waited in line, experiencing the feeling of fullness.
“I didn’t eat anything before this,” Cross said. “But I’m full. This was my first time to enter, and it was harder than I thought it would be.”
McCullin said his strategy for eating peaches at an accelerated rate was to start with the center and then move toward the ends.
