Doug Morgan does Belle’s Ice Cream Bar Brain-Freeze Challenge

If you are competitive you can join the Winter Olympics this year at the Belle’s Ice Cream Bar in LaBelle. They have the Brain-Freeze Challenge; 24 scoops in 30 minutes. If you eat the entire 24 scoops within the time limit you will be rewarded with a prize.

Doug Morgan of LaBelle Animal Control took on the challenge: “It wasn’t just 24 scoops, they added a big cookie and a big brownie as well as syrup and a waffle cone,” Doug explains. “It was ginormous! Working with LaBelle Animal Control I am part of the Caloosa Humane Society so I decided to turn it into a fund-raiser for the Humane Society. In a matter of three days after I put the word out I had a lot of positive response from people willing to donate. So we recorded the challenge on Facebook-live and we had a lot of people coming in and commissioners writing checks on the spot, it was great!” Doug says.

“We have raised around $2,500 with people donating through Facebook and writing checks on the spot. I had a sugar rush and feeling sick as can be for days after but it was well worth it!”
