Holy cannoli! Man eats 13.5 pastries in 5 minutes

SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) - Holy cannoli!

A man ate nearly 14 cannolis in five minutes during an eating contest at an Italian festival in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Twenty-five-year-old David Wood beat out seven other contestants at La Festa in Scranton.

Wood tells The Times-Tribune (http://bit.ly/1rhGNIf ) that he'd never even tried the cream-filled pastries before Monday's event.

The Kingston resident won with an official total of 13-1/2 cannolis, since a piece fell out of his mouth as time expired.

Wood took home $150 in prize money. He joked he'd spend his winnings on hot dogs in order to train for the famous July Fourth eating contest at Coney Island, New York.
