If you were paid millions to eat only one food item for the rest of your life, what would you choose?

Every Wednesday we ask our Brain Game contestants one interesting, thought-provoking or just plain quirky question. Their answers will be published anonymously in Young Post. Then readers can vote for their FAVOURITE answer. We will eliminate the contestant with the LEAST votes every week until we have a winner.

The ultimate Brain Game winner will receive a pair of annual Gold Passes to Ocean Park.

The contestants


Contestant 1

Is this even a question? Of course, CHOCOLATE!! It’s amazing and heavenly and the best thing on Earth. There is actually no point in choosing something healthy, as too much of anything is not good for you. And really, who ever said chocolate isn’t nutritious? So why not beautiful, sweet, wonderful chocolate? And after adding the million dollars, this is the most CHOCO-TASTIC offer ever! #chocolatelover

I would eat potatoes. They’re filling and you can eat them in many different ways: mashed, boiled, or fried. They’ll keep me alive, and even though I may not have other nutrients, hey, as long as I’m alive everything’s OK, right? Look at how it kept the astronaut in The Martian alive until his friends came back for him!

Contestant 3

Pizza. Undoubtedly the triangle shaped bread topped with the most delicious toppings and the cheese is like the cherry on top. My love for pizza is indescribable, and I could see myself, the 16-year-old that I am, gobbling up boxes of Pizza Hut – all day, every day!

Contestant 4

Willy Wonka. I have always wanted to live in his chocolate factory and eat chocolate for my entire life. Not only are there countless shapes that chocolate can be made into, there are also zillions of flavours ranging from Japanese Green Tea to Italian Tiramisu! No day spent eating chocolate could be boring to me.

Contestant 5

Obviously chocolate since I am a chocoholic. Just kidding, let’s be practical, I can’t imagine just eating chocolate for the rest of my life. So, I will go with potatoes because they are rich in vitamins and fibre. Also, I will never get tired of eating them. I can eat French fries, mashed potatoes, crisps, or baked potatoes. In addition, a creamy potato soup could even work as a drink for me.

Contestant 6

Born, horn, morn, torn, and yes! It’s CORN!

Besides being rich in dietary fibre which adds bulk to your faeces, which in turn, prevents you from being constipated and prevents colon cancer, it’s always fun when you can recognise kernels of corns sticking out of your faeces (IT’S VISIBLE! I AM SERIOUS!) the day after you had corn for your meal.

PS: I apologise for making you lose your appetite.

Contestant 7

*mind floats off…* I think that the best thing for me would be rice, because it is a very versatile food item and is very simple but a lifetime supply can actually work out nicely. But of course, it is boring, white grains of rice with almost no flavour, so I think it would be unfair to anyone to not taste any other delicious foods in their entire lifetime.

Contestant 8

First of all, I’d rather eat a zillion different kinds of food than getting paid millions of dollars to rely on one food item for the rest of my life. But if it really came down to it, then it would definitely be cheese! Ooo, and by one food item, do you mean that I can eat all kinds of cheese? Mozzarella, Parmesan, Cheddar, Feta, goat cheese, arrrghhh! Can’t decide!

Contestant 9

I would choose to eat a spectacular bar which would turn into any type of food I want; it would still be one food item, right? I could have nutritious chicken curries, healthy red sauce pasta meals, dumplings, noodles, burgers with fries, and so much more. What wouldn’t be possible with that amazing bar?
