Festival goers waited in long lines for their chance to sample some of the best food from the city's many street vendor. However, decadent creations like brownie sundaes and fried cemita described by LAList.com likely caused some people to leave with bad breath.
Overeating can lead to indigestion. When stomach gases begin to churn and climb up the esophagus, they can be released through the mouth. These sulfurous emissions often carry with them an unpleasant odor.
The city's mayor, Antonio Villaraigosa, was on hand to judge the best vendor. There were no reports as to whether he left with any of these digestive problems, but he did tell the Pasadena News-Star that his favorite dish was a shrimp taco creation.
