Win a Street Truck Party From “This is Why You’re Fat”

“This is Why You’re Fat” the book comes out next week, and to celebrate they’re having a food truck scavenger hunt in NYC next Thursday. It involves taking your photo with 6 different incredibly gross items from 6 different NYC food trucks.  Here’s all the info direct from TIWYF co-founder Jessica Amason:

This is Why You’re Fat is taking over NYC’s most popular food trucks for a day, giving the nation’s fascination with fatty foods the 2.0 treatment, all over again! I’ve created a Twitter contest involving six of Manhattan’s most popular Twittering food trucks to join the *Gross Food Movement and celebrate the blog to book that made it all happen.

When: Oct. 29 (the week of publication), from 11am to end of day.

Where: Throughout Manhattan (mostly downtown locations).

All the contest rules, plus a sneak peak at the list of the 6 food trucks that will be participating is after the jump.

The Twittering Food Trucks
The Treats Truck
Cupcake Stop Truck
The Bistro Truck
Wafels & Dinges
NYC Cravings Truck
Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream

The Contest
Every 20 minutes This is Why You’re Fat (@tiwyf) will be twittering the locations of each truck as they move through the city. Each truck will be creating their own This is Why You’re Fat-inspired menu item for the day. Fans must hit each truck over the course of the day and tweet a pic of themselves eating the This is Why You’re Fat special item. The first person to tweet pics of themselves eating all six items will win a private food cart party of their choice with 25 of their friends plus This is Why You’re Fat swag including a free copy of the book! In addition, the food cart with the most popular This is Why You’re Fat item will be featured on and added to their menu for good!

I don’t know what I’m more excited about… the scavenger hunt, or the prospect of trying 6 new ultra gross creations from the six food trucks listed above.  As he said, most of the carts will be Downtown- but I’m hoping at least one will be in Midtown.  (On Thursdays the Treats Truck is usually parked on 38th and 5th, so I’m hoping we’ll at least be able to get to try their gross concoction.)
