Crawfish Eating World Champion
Although the competition will be held this year at Crawfish Mambo. The 2017 Crawfish Eating Contest in New Orleans will not be a MLE sanctioned event. Major League Eating, which oversees professional eating contests around the world and includes the governing body, the International Federation of Competitive Eating based in New York will not sanction this years event. This is the first time since 2009 that MLE will not be sanctioning the crawfish eating competition in New Orleans.
Crawfish Mambo, which will be on May 13th 2017, will host its own eating contest instead. Major League Eating charges organizations to provide oversight and assist with judging and publicity. Several people close to the situation said there were budgetary reasons for MLE not assisting with the competition.
User submitted question: Should you suck the heads of crawfish?
Yes you should suck the head. When you suck on the crawfish head after eating the tail, the crawfish experience becomes truly transcendent. The moisture and the flavor is all in the head.
Although MLE will not be sanctioning the Crawfish Eating Contest this year, it should still be lots of fun. No word yet on whether there will be crawfish races at the event this year.
