1 – Staring Challenge

This challenge can get pretty competitive so do try to remain friends after the challenge is over… This is one of the better challenges to do with friends – just to get the ball rolling, but keep reading on because they get better and better!
2 – Watermelon Challenge
Munching on a cold, crisp slice of watermelon, on a hot summers day and allowing the juice drip down your cheek while you spit out the seeds. This is one of the many excitements during summer. Delicious, right? But have you ever wondered what the case would be when it eventually becomes a challenge?
In this challenge, participants would compete against each other eating the watermelon, only with their mouths and no hands allowed. The goal is to finish a set amount of watermelon, within a stipulated time frame. At the end of the time limit, the first person to finish is declared the winner. Any competitor who, before the declaration of a winner, suffers urges contrary to swallowing is immediately disqualified.
3 – Pickle challenge
The pickle challenge is also another interesting and popular challenge to do with your friends. Eating a small quantity of pickle is nice, but what if you have to empty a whole jar full? In this challenge, the objective is to finish an entire jar of pickles and drink the juice from the jar. Horrible challenge right?
This challenge has two approaches to it. The first way is to win the pickle eating race, while the second is to set up a time limit for it. Racing would probably be fun I suppose. The first person to finish the entire jar full of pickles and its whole juice would be declared the winner of the game, and yes it is as disgusting as it sounds!
4 – Saltine Challenge
Dried and really salty biscuits are sometimes hard to swallow without any form of liquid while eating. People normally don’t prefer to chew more than one saltine at a time because they cannot be swallowed easily. While this challenge might pose an opportunity for some just to have a snack, it, in reality, is a lot more difficult. The actual challenge is that you cannot have a drink while eating saltine crackers.
There is plenty of salt that it dries up all the liquids in your mouth thereby making it tougher to eat. Remember it is six crackers, one minute, and definitely no water.
5 – Oreo Challenge
If you need challenges to do with friends were you people with sensitive taste buds can’t compete, the Oreo challenges is a good and delicious option. This is a weird and funny challenge to do with friends. In this challenge, you twist the Oreo into two pieces and after that lick the side with the white filling. You subsequently stick the Oreo on top of your forehead and have to eat it without any assistance from your hands. You have to achieve this by sliding it down your face to your mouth anyhow possible but without your hands.
