WILKES-BARRE, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) – More than two dozen chip lovers vied to become the sultan of snacks.

Sabatinis Bottle Shop and Bar hosted the fourth annual Middleswarth Chip Eating Contest yesterday.

Contestants had 5 minutes to scarf down as many plain or BBQ Middleswarth chips as possible.

The winner, Russell Keeler of Kingston, gobbled up a bag and a half to win the official “chip champ trophy”, a 50-dollar northeast snacks gift certificate and just as important local bragging rights.
