Taylor Swift , Ed Sheeran and brother Matt out for ice cream on Monday, July 29 to visit Mel’s Downtown Creamery in Pawcatuck, CT. Sheeran wanted to complete the Big Kahuna challenge, a $ 19.99 sundae with eight scoops of ice cream, seven toppings, brownie, banana and loads of whipped cream, which normally serves 4.
Taylor cheered him on, playing Eye of the Tiger on her phone and shooting photos and videos. Sheeran struggled, but completed the challenge in 30 minutes and his photo was placed on the Kahuna Wall of Fame.
They came in with and two security guards came in to Mel’s around 3:30 Monday afternoon. They had been hanging at Swift’s Watch Hill mansion since late last week, as they had back-to-back shows at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough Friday and Saturday night.
But Swift and Matt Sheeran did not help themselves to spoons when the giant red bowl was served at the booth, Sheeran wanted his photo on the Kahuna Wall of Fame where those who went solo were featured. Swift provided moral support by playing Eye of the Tiger on her phone and shooting photos and videos.
It took about a half hour but Sheeran, who started strong but struggled at the end, did it. Well, almost. He left one tiny piece of brownie at the bottom. ‘I’m counting it as done,’ said Mel’s owner Melanie Goggin. ‘I want his photo up on that wall.’
