Bratwurst Lovers Have Their Mouths Full

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Bratwurst lovers in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, will have their mouths full this weekend (Jul. 31 - Aug. 2).

The town is holding it’s 55th Annual Brat Days in honor of the famous German sausage.

The highlight of the sausage fest is the brat eating contest, where competitors have 10 minutes to see who can shove the most wieners down their throats without puking.

Event spokesperson Terri Wallner says chow-down contenders will have to suck it up and eat their brats “naked without buns,” but says most festival-goers enjoy wrapping their sausages up in sauerkraut, onions, and pickles during the day.

But only those with really big mouths dare to get down on one massively meaty masterpiece.

Wallner says some people stack a whole bratwurst on top of a hamburger in a bun and eat it as one gigantic sandwich.
