LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - An East Texas ice cream shop has a cool food challenge for summer.

It's seven scoops of any ice cream you want with bananas, brownies, whip cream, and cherries.

The Shuky Mountain is at Shuky Deez Homemade Ice Cream in Lufkin or Livingston.

You pay about $18 for the challenge and get a free T-shirt and $10 gift certificate if you finish in 20 minutes.

Your picture also goes on the board with a thumbs up or down.

The owners say even they haven't even been able to complete the challenge.

"Seeing the group of people come up here and cheering them, on it's great," co-owner Roberto Perez said. "It's a great environment for everybody and just seeing them try. Their jaw is locking up, it's great. It's something to see."

So far eight people have tried the challenge, but only two have been successful.
