Join us for the second annual National Harbor World Peeps Eating Championship hosted by Major League Eating!
At 2016’s inaugural Championship, Matt Stonie of San Jose, CA, ate 200 Peeps in just five minutes to set a World Peeps Eating Record. For mere mortals, one or two, or possibly a small cluster of Peeps, make for a quiet, sweet reminder of the Easter season’s promise of renewal and new life in marshmallow form. But not for Stonie. He ate like a man possessed by the promise of the Peep. He ate with a ferocity but also with a calm that belied that ferocity. His mind and body were in perfect harmony. Geoffrey Esper would eat 160 for second place; Ms Juliet Lee, a resident of the great state of Maryland, ate 140 for third. Others ate less but all left happy.
Peeps are delicious and that eating them in the early spring air in our nation’s Capital Region is a privilege, not a right. This is The National Harbor World Peeps Eating Championship. At the table or in the crowd—don’t you dare miss it!
