Forget hot dogs, salo eating contest!

LUTSK, Ukraine -- How does a nice slab of pork fat sound?

Salo is a Ukrainian delicacy. And now a slim 51-year-old man, Volodymr Stryhaniv, is the salo king.
He managed to down more than 2 pounds of the stuff at Ukraine's biggest-ever salo festival.
After 20 minutes of wolfing down pork fat, the winner said he could eat another pound of the stuff.
Salo is often eaten with a shot of vodka and garlic bread. But some restaurants are now offering chocolate-covered pork fat.

Salo festival? Only in Ukraine...
