Today 10 amazing talents of ice cream eating met on the battle field at Market Square to pit their stomaches, risk brain freeze and test their merits to be crowned the 2014 Ice Cream Eating champion of Tallahassee. They took these risks, and met this challenge to celebrate National Ice Cream day as declared in 1984 by President Ronald Regan. The President said "I call upon the people of the United States to observe these events with appropriate ceremonies and activities."
Clearly this contest is appropriate. The flavor, as by tradition was not announced until the contests were seated, and you could see the faces on a few light with joy, or look dejected when they found out it was coffee ice cream, Lofty Pursuits' own "Java Jive".
The contest was on, with five minutes to consume as much as possible. Daniel Alvarez finished his first serving early, giving him a lead he kept to the end, but second place was a close battle between Aiden Boyett, and Roman Roman. Neck and neck the went, until Aiden pulled ahead, with a weigh off to confirm victory. The judge, Gregory Cohen, the owner of Lofty Pursuits declared the winners to be:
1st Place: Daniel Alvarez
2nd Place; Aiden Boyett
3rd Place : Roman Roman
Another great year, and another demonstration of ice cream prowess at Lofty Pursuits.
