Following on from yesterday’s post on reddit’s refrigerator challenge, we thought we’d open it up to the community. The response we got was INCREDIBLE. Tweet us your attempt @ExtremeEatsUK using #fridgechallenge.
The challenger will
1) open their fridge and take out the item they find at the very back left of the top shelf.
2) take out the item found on the right hand side of the bottom shelf of the door.
3) proceed to combine these two items appropriately, using a blender if required.
4) consume the hideous concoction.
5) post results, preferably with photographs documenting the challenge.
NOTE: PLEASE EXERCISE CAUTION WHEN DOING THIS CHALLENGE. IT’S JUST FOR FUN. YOU DON’T WIN ANYTHING FOR COMPETING. DO NOT EAT ANY RAW MEAT, POISONOUS GOODS, OR ANY OTHER FOOD THAT IS UNSAFE. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
Youtuber FreakEating uploaded a video of him eating old butter ghee and sickly strawberry syrup: Everyone in the comments got involved too. Matthew Cohen posted a video on his Youtube channel of a particularly nasty combination

Thanks to the Rake&Herald for featuring us in their round up of weekly food challenges, and for adding us to their useful links – much appreciated!
Here’s our attempt at the challenge
I eased open the fridge door with a sense of dread. Had a I thrown away the two month out of date yoghurt? Was the mouldy pasta still around? Had my organic beer been left long enough to sprout fangs? But no, it was far worse. Yes, ladies and gentleman. Morello Cherry jam and Hollandaise sauce. Wincing, I mixed a few spoonfuls together. Looks lovely, doesn’t it. Well, I had to do it. I took a mouthful. … … Wow. It’s kind of cheesecake-y. With a hint of…oh god…is that rotten egg?
It was truly one of the most disgusting things I have every tasted. Initially it was fine but a few seconds later, tastes of vomit and vinegar and putrid dairy kicked in.
Safe to say I only had the one try. But it was enough. A few hours later, the taste was still on my lips. Maybe it will never go away. Thanks, reddit.
