This Japanese Woman Ate the Entire Starbucks Pastry Menu in One Sitting

Whether you'll admit it or not, there's a good chance you've made more than a few impulsive muffin purchases during your morning Starbucks run on an empty stomach. We've all been there, sure, but in a recent video on YouTube, a Japanese competitive eater appears to take the concept to a new extreme -- by eating everything on the damn pastry menu.  

Watch as Yuka Kinoshita, the same eating machine who devoured 150 McDonald's Chicken McNuggets in a matter of minutes, scarfs down one of each of the dessert items on display at her local Starbucks in one sitting. The pile of 22 baked goods includes scones, muffins, donuts, pound cakes, cookies, and cakes, which she washes down with a jelly coffee Frappuccino and a lime Refresher. In the end, she consumes almost 8,000 calories, and judging by her remarkable composure, she probably could have eaten even more. Something tells us she will.
