The Kitchen Sink at The San Francisco Creamery

the kitchen sink challenge san francisco creamery

Here is the challenge that was featured on last nights episode of Man v. Food, The Kitchen Sink! Adam demolished this huge tub of ice cream to become the 5th person to ever do so alone. Normally made for up to 6 people, the kitchen sink is about 2 gallons worth of ice cream plus toppings. This is definitely not for the lactose intolerant (or the faint of heart).

    rule update: now the time limit is 1 hour at the start of each new calendar year and the new time limit for the rest of the year is the completion time of the last winner, which never goes under 30 minutes, even when finished in less than that.
