For foodies, there is nothing more exciting than eating to their heart’s content. Food is perhaps an emotion to them, because it gives them pleasure. And what if eating could also give them recognition? Yes, that’s possible! If a YouTube video from the Guinness World Records is to be believed, it is possible. In the video, a woman has set a new world record for eating most chicken nuggets in one minute. Yes, you read that right. Speed-eater Leah Shutkever from the UK, ate 352 gm (the equivalent of a share box of 19 nuggets) of the McDonald's snack in sixty seconds. The experience of watching her eat chicken nuggets is an absolute pleasure as well as a thrilling experience at the same time. 

How? Check the video and see for yourself:

While she attempted to eat a bowl of 20 nuggets, she could manage only 19. Leah had said before eating that she had to eat all of them to break the previous record of model and competitive eater Nela Zisser. Yes, there has already been a record for it. In November 2020, Nela ate 298 grams of chicken nuggets in Auckland, New Zealand.  

Leah appeared to be disappointed and unsure about her attempt. However, after calculation, she had surpassed Nela's record by 54 grams. And if you thought that this was the only eating world record Leah has won, let us tell you the several Guinness World Records under her belt. The list included the title for eating most chicken nuggets in three minutes (775.1 grams), according to Guinness World Records. 

Some of her other current titles include: 

- Fastest time to eat a muffin (no hands) (21.95 seconds in 2019) 

- Fastest time to eat three mince pies (52.21 seconds in 2019) 

- Fastest time to eat three pickled eggs (7.80 seconds in 2019) 

- Most marshmallows eaten in one minute (no hands) (20 marshmallows in 2020). 

- Most tomatoes eaten in one minute (8 in 2020) 

Leah took to competitive eating at a young age. It all started when she was 23 and her brother challenged her while dining at a restaurant. Since then, she set her eyes on breaking eating goals.  

What do you think of the record by Leah?
