The Bass Pro Shops World MoonPie Eating Championship

Location: Memphis, TN
Date: 10-24-2015
Winner: Matt Stonie, with a World Record 69 MoonPies in 8 mins!


Matt Stonie did what Matt Stonie does. The #1-ranked eater in the world ate 69 MoonPies in 8 minutes to set a new MoonPie-eating record at the inaugural Bass Pro Shops World MoonPie Eating Championship. In doing so, Stonie set his 10th World Record. The applause and respect of the Memphis faithful marked the occasion with appropriate reverence and love.

Forgive the broken record here, but Stonie straight up killed it. He entered the event, of course, as the firm favorite. He ate like the favorite. He won like the favorite. The totals below show just how dominant the performance was. Yasir Salem lent on experience for second. Gideon Oji continued his phenomenal 2015 with a gutsy third. Badlands grooved his way to fourth. Matt Cohen, lately of MLE membership, hit the money for the first time with a strong showing for fifth.

But it is Stonie who will be remembered from this event. Another win. Another trophy. Another check with zeroes at the end of it. And another World Record. Roll on, Stonie. Roll on.

About MoonPie Chattanooga Bakery was founded in 1902 as a subsidiary of the Mountain City Flour Mill. A fifth generation, family-owned business, the company made nearly 100 snack cake and cookie items under the Lookout™  trademark, named after the popular residential and tourist community near Chattanooga, Lookout Mountain. In 1917, after a brainstorming conversation between a bakery salesman and some Appalachian coal miners, the MoonPie was born, and by the late 1930’s was the bakery’s #1 seller, a spot it still occupies today, with nearly 1 million MoonPies produced and shipped daily from Chattanooga. MoonPies are available in three sizes (Original, Double-Decker® and Mini) and seven flavors (Chocolate, Vanilla, Banana, Salted Caramel, Lemon, Orange & Strawberry). Brand distribution is national, with particular strength in the Southeast and Southwest. The brand can be found in Grocery, Mass, Club, Drug, Convenience, Vending, Foodservice and a number of specialty retail outlets including Bass Pro Shops and Cracker Barrel.
