Ben & Jerry's Vermonster
Posted 16 August 2006 - 03:32 PM
Ben & Jerry's Vermonster. Would anybody be interested in tackling one of these badboys with me? If we had about half a dozen people, we could probably do this without too much pain. Just something I'm thinking about, so there's no set date at this time. But if you're interested, if you're man or woman enough let me know.
Info from wikipedia.com:
A Vermonster is a large ice cream sundae made by Ben and Jerry's. It is named after the company headquarter's home state of Vermont. The Vermonster consists of the standard sundae ingredients, but uses them in excessive amounts. It contains:
* Twenty scoops of ice cream, frozen yougurt, or sorbet
* Four ladles of hot fudge
* Four bananas
* Ten scoops of chopped walnuts
* One Fudge brownie
* Three Cookies
* Two scoops each of four different toppings
* Whipped cream
The sundae is usually served in a commemorative plastic bucket.
The bucket tends to weigh anywhere from 4 to 9 pounds.
The entire Vermonster costs $28 ($39.99 in California and Texas, $32 in Virginia).
The current known record for quickest consumption of a vermonster was in 9 minutes, by Branon Brown at a Ben and Jerry's in Gainesville Florida.

When i was younger, my family and I went to this place in San Francisco while we were on vacation and ate something called the earthquake which is pretty similar to this thing offered by Ben and Jerry's and it took us like an hour to eat with 5 of us.

PS the best part of the kitchen sink was that it was served in a kitchen sink!

My only concern on this is if there are TOO many people there won't be enough to go around!
Then again we could always double down...

I think I could finish the whole thing if I HAD to
But a timed consumption of the whole thing would not be pretty...
But 6 people is a good number, especially if you want to head straight out for an easy run afterward!

I was looking for that too, I guess you can only use it as an icon next to your post, not in it.
