This is in the official guinness world record's site, it's a sub-section when normal people can try to film an attent to do a record. The first comment is from a Guinness judge and you can read also "About this challenge" :

The most Ferrero Rocher chocolates eaten in one minute is 9, achieved by Peter Czerwinski (Canada), in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, on 4 January 2012. The record was equalled by Patrick Bertoletti (USA), at Sierra Studios, in East Dundee, Illinois, USA, on 14 January 2012.
