Tracking The Starburst Eating Analyst

financial analyst eating starbursts

Yesterday, Dealbreaker’s Bess Levin broke the crucial story of a young, hopeful Wall Street analyst and his quest to eat 500 Starbursts in 12 hours.

We scoffed at him, but after much thought, and some interesting commentary, we realised that his feat was indeed admirable and deserving of a Wall Street food challenge.

Check this out (from our awesome reader, PE_Feeds):

Some maths:

1. 50g sugar=1 Starburst.
2. 500 Starbursts = 25,000g sugar.
3. Recc daily intake=40g.
4. 62,400% over the daily intake.

Diabetes, anyone?

See? Tough, the only problem is that he’s taken his live feed of the event down. Now we have no idea what happened. Can someone let us know please?

Thanks, you’re a Life Saver.
