How many Peeps could you stomach in one sitting?
For Matt Stonie, that magic number is 255 — all within 5 minutes.
The San Jose resident downed the sugary Easter-time treats during the National Harbor World Peeps Eating Championship in Maryland on Saturday, according to Major League Eating, an organization that oversees professional eating contests. The event was live-streamed by The Washington Post.
With the win, Stonie picked up a cool $1,750 in prize money, according to the organization. An additional $1,750 was distributed in varying amounts to those who came in second through sixth place.
Stonie also won last year’s inaugural Peeps eating contest — though in that competition, he consumed 55 fewer of the marshmallow snacks than this year.
This isn’t Stonie’s first rodeo: He also took part in Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog-Eating Contest in 2015 and 2016.
