NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. - Matt Stonie, a competitive eater from San Jose, broke his own record by downing 255 Peeps on Saturday at the second-annual National Harbor World Peeps Eating Championship, NBC News Chicago reports.

Major League Eating said Stonie set a new world record by eating the sugar-coated marshmallow treats in 5 minutes.  Stonie beat his 2016 record by 55 Peeps.
