Eight Scoops to Heaven
Starting today,on the fifth of every month,dessert brand Ice Cream Works will challenge its patrons to enter a friendly competition. Participants,who will have to register on the brands Facebook page,will be made to eat Before I Die First an eight-scoop sundae. The one to finish first will be refunded the desserts bill of Rs 1,228,in addition to other gifts and merchandise. The second and third to finish will get a 50 per cent discount. While it may not look too tough a contest,the real challenge lies in the add-ons that make up the sundae whipped cream,nuts,bananas and choco-corn flakes,among other rich toppings. The contest will be held at 6pm at Ice Cream Works Café in Phoenix Mills,Lower Parel.
