The Revolution Ice Cream serves up a 6 pound food challenge in Tampa

a huge bowl filled with more than 20 scoops of ice cream

Here’s the scoop: The Revolution Ice Cream is one of the best sweet spots in the city of Tampa. Their rotating roster of flavors is remarkable, and when they make cold brew floats we are there. Sometimes you need more than just a small fix of handcrafted ice cream. Sometimes you want to put your appetite to the test. Sometimes you want to see if you can handle an unruly, unyielding brain freeze. Welcome to the ultimate food challenge in Tampa: The Anarchy Challenge. Could you eat an entire gallon of ice cream in 30 minutes? That amounts to 6 pounds of dairy joy.

The challenge features 24 total scoops of ice cream. You pick the flavors and prepare for the ultimate, cold, creamy endeavor. It’s an Aggro Crag of ice cream (that one is for all you 90s kids who loved GUTS). Those who conquer the Anarchy Challenge at Revolution Ice Cream usually do so with just seconds to spare.


If the ice cream gets the best of you, then it will cost you $29+ tax; however, if you manage to complete the challenge, then the 24 scoops are on the house.

Revolution Ice Cream currently operates three locations across the Tampa Bay region:

  • Brandon, 220 W Brandon Blvd Brandon
