A man has become the new world record holder for eating the most Oreos in five minutes.
Max Stanford, from London, scooped the title after scoffing an incredible 141 of the cream-filled biscuits.
The 33-year-old beat the previous unofficial record which was held by Jonathan Clarke, who managed 78 Oreos in the same time.
As well as his prestigious title, Max scooped a £150 prize too.
Organiser Craig Harker wanted to bring competitive eating to the UK after being inspired by the US show Man v. Food.
He hosts challenges at venues around the country, including his own pub, The George Pub and Grill, in County Durham.

Craig, 33, laid out the unofficial challenge last week to see how many Oreo biscuits can be eaten in five minutes.
He said: "They are quite difficult biscuits to eat, so we let the eaters have a glass of water and some milk to dunk them into.
"They all have their own techniques. Max was doing two at a time. It was a one bite, swallow sort of thing.
"Another was doing four at a time. It was really quite something. When it gets going there really is a lot of emotion in the room.
"Everyone is cheering them on and there's a lot of passion flying about."

Max scooped the title after munching an impressive 141 biscuits, followed by Kyle Gibson in second place with 137.
In third place position was Dawesy, known as "The Beast", with a whopping 81 Oreos.
Craig's events now scores each winner with points – similar to the Grand Prix system.
He added: "Competitive eating is getting quite a lot of traction in the UK now.
"Obviously because of Covid-19 it's put a bit of a dampener on things but the appetite is still there."
It comes after Max scoffed 8,000 calories including 18 pies and 7 portions of mash in 43 minutes.
The competitive eater took on the epic 11lb challenge at the pie and mash shop he would go to as a child.
He went to Brixton to tackle the mammoth challenge.
Max admitted that enjoying the food is actually a downfall when it comes to competitive eating.
The Londoner added: "You want to crack on with it if it's a speed challenge."
