Competition Gets Fierce at San Gennaro's Annual Cannoli Eating Contest

The annual San Gennaro cannoli eating contest returned early Friday afternoon after a year off. The objective? Ten competitors were given eight minutes to scarf as many full-sized Ferrara cannolis as possible. 

Congrats go to current Guinness World Record holder Wayne Wonder, who beat out the competition by a long shot. Check out scenes from the ricotta-fueled competition here.
