SJ’s Matt Stonie Devours 255 Peeps in Five Minutes

In the spirit of the Easter season, San Jose's Matt Stonie inhaled 255 Peeps Saturday on his way to smashing his previous world record.

The competitive eating legend downed the copious amount of surgary marshmallows in just five minutes at the second annual National Harbor World Peeps Eating Championship, according to Major League Eating. That mark set Saturday was 55 better than the previous world record, which happened to be set by Stonie during last year's Peeps-eating contest in Maryland.

Stonie, nicknamed "Megatoad," is the No. 2-ranked competitive eater in the world behind fellow San Jose, California, native Joey Chestnut, according to Major League Eating.
