'I'm happy, my wife's happier': Man's scoop on sweet life
IS DANIEL Mowat's wife the luckiest woman in Springfield?
He'll be bringing home some sweet stuff for his sweetheart after winning a year's supply of ice-cream in a recent Baskin-Robbins competition.
The Bellbird Park man said it was actually his wife's idea to enter as she wanted the free ice-cream.
"I was pretty happy, my wife was happier, she wanted the ice- cream," he said.
All he had to do was eat a kids ice-cream scoop in under 31 seconds and he smashed the challenge finishing it in 12 seconds.
Mr Mowat said he had a strategy to the competition and chose royal mouse chocolate flavoured ice-cream.
"I picked one that I thought wouldn't have any hard bits so I could eat it quicker. It seemed to work," he said.
"I thought I had a pretty good chance. I practised at home and got it in 13 seconds."
He has also won a slushy sculling competition held at the Springfield Night Owl.
The couple plan on trying all the flavours with their win of a free medium tub of ice-cream a week.
Runner up Jess Boulding completed her scoop in 17.41 seconds.
The $5 competition saw anyone who could eat the 70 grams of ice-cream in under 31 seconds receive a free voucher for another scoop, meaning they got their ice-cream for free.
