Sunday (July 13) is the last day to head to a participating Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour restaurant to try to qualify in the chain’s ice cream eating challenge.
Individual challengers can try to qualify by paying $20 (proceeds benefit CHOC Children’s and Make-A-Wish). Challengers will receive a three-scoop sundae, a limited-editon Farrell’s Ice Cream Challenge shirt and a $5 coupon, good on a future visit.
The goal is to eat the sundae as quickly as possible. (Current leaders can be found here.)
There are several qualifying categories: Individual men’s, women’s and kid’s (ages 9 to 15), plus big and small (one adult, one child 9 or under) and four-person team.
There’s also men’s and women’s professional categories.
Top qualifiers will compete in the fifth annual Farrell’s Splendiferously Superiffic Summer Spectacular Ice Cream Eating Challenge, held Sunday (Sundae?), July 20, in downtown Brea.
Winners in each category will receive a year’s worth of Farrell’s Ice Cream and a humongous trophy.
Winners in the professional categories will also win a cash prize.

Contest qualifying can be done at either of Farrell’s Inland Empire locations (Rancho Cucamonga and Riverside), as well as Buena Park, Brea, Mission Viejo, Sacramento and Santa Clarita.
