Farrell’s Ice Cream Eating Contest, July 18 (qualifying rounds going now)
Qualifying rounds will be held this week, June 21-25, at locations in Mission Viejo and Santa Clarita. Contestants will be timed while eating a three-scoop sundae. The restaurants are holding contests in two categories: individual and group (4-person).
The top fastest competitors in each category will go to the finals July 18. Individual contestants will be timed on how fast they eat the chain’s signature “Pig’s Trough,” while groups will be forced to tackle the Farrell’s Zoo. The latter is a 30-scoop bowl of ice cream that is delivered to your table via a stretcher while a siren blares in the background.
Trials will be held daily during restaurant hours.
The cost of participation is $20 which gets the participant a 3-scoop sundae, a limited-edition Farrell’s T-shirt and a $5 coupon. Proceeds from the competition will benefit Children’s Hospital of Orange County and Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Health Foundation.
Each grand-prize winner will get a coupon for a free year’s worth of ice cream — valid one day a month.
