CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Craves restaurant in Casper is known for it’s wild menu and daring challenges. The most impressive though being their eight pound “Karen” burrito challenge. The behemoth of a burrito has been faced down by eight challengers and none have even come close to finishing the beast which also has two pounds of fries on the side just for extra difficulty.

The challenge was thought up by Craves owner Johnathan Tiesezen who named the massive burrito after a popular internet joke. When asked why he chose this name
Johnathan said, “The idea was if we make it a Karen it’s an unbeatable challenge because you can’t win a challenge with a Karen.” Owner Johnathan even said that a competitive eater came to Craves and refused to attempt the Karen because he was so worried that he’d lose.

The burrito contains sixteen chicken strips, sixteen pieces of thick cut bacon, a pound of lettuce, pico de gallo, and cheese, all wrapped in four fourteen inch tortilla shells. The Final product is so huge that it takes two men to fold it into it’s final form. When looking down the barrel of the Karen burrito it seems to stretch for miles while being surrounded by a meadow of French fries. Anyone who attempts this challenge can hope to win one hundred dollars if they complete all their food in an hour, but hope is probably all they’ll do because as Johnathan said “you can’t win a challenge with a Karen.”
