Weird and Wacky Ice Cream News: Which of these stories is fake?

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on July 7th, 2016


It’s time once again for some weird and wacky ice cream news. As usual, three of these stories are true and one was made up by the Turkey Hill team. Guess which story is the fake by leaving a comment. And remember, all comments left on the blog during National Ice Cream Month will be entered to win our weekly ice cream prizes!

1. BET YA CAN’T FINISH THIS SUNDAE – A small town in Michigan broke a world record by creating a half-mile long ice cream sundae. This sundae included nearly 12,750 scoops of ice cream and required more than 500 hard-working scoopers and another 500 volunteers for others sundae-building duties. Later, the record-setting treat was fed to more than 6,000 hungry onlookers.

2. RELAXING DAY BY THE POOL? – On a particularly hot June day, six friends in Burghausen, Germany filled a swimming pool with ice cream to celebrate their favorite food and one of their favorite hobbies. The friends met while competing in the Ice Swimming German Open where competitors swim in freezing cold waters. After competing, they celebrated their accomplishment by getting some ice cream. While eating, one of the swimmers joked that he would swim in a pool of the frosty treat. From there, the friends turned that joke into reality.

3. WOULD YOU EAT THIS FLAVOR? – There have always been weird flavor combinations created to keep ice cream lovers interested and entertained, but some ice cream vendors in Venezuela have taken that to a new level. Spaghetti and cheese ice cream has become a new sensation, intriguing the taste buds of thousands. The ice cream is a cheese flavor and has chunks of real spaghetti noodles mixed into it. Bon appetit!

4. MEOWWWWWWW!!! – A brain freeze is one of the unfortunate side effects of eating frosty treats too quickly, but humans aren’t the only ones experiencing the pain. An ice cream loving Ontario cat was filmed by his owner enjoying a spoonful of the frozen treat and pausing to endure the effects of an ice cream headache. The videos were uploaded to the Internet and the rest is viral video history.
