The tour mates have been spending a serious amount of time together off the road this summer: grabbing dinner in Pennsylvania, paddle boarding in Rhode Island and hanging out with each other’s families, and on Monday they were spotted sharing a sweet ice cream date at Mel’s Downtown Creamery in Pawcatuck, Connecticut.
Taylor and Ed showed up to the store, just a short drive from Taylor’s Watch Hill, RI, mansion, with Ed’s brother Matt and two security guards in tow around 3:30 p.m. on Monday afternoon, the Stonington Patch reports.
While perusing the menu, the duo spotted the $19.99 “Big Kahuna,” with eight scoops of ice cream, seven toppings, a banana and whipped cream. After some teasing from Taylor, Ed decided to take the challenge and ordered it for himself.
Super-slim Taylor didn’t share the treat, but played Eye of the Tiger on her phone and took photos and videos while Ed tried to defeat the monstrous sundae. Half an hour later he emerged victorious, and had his photo taken to be put up on the store’s wall.
Taylor and Ed first got close when they recorded the duet Everything Has Changed for her album Red last year. The two got flirty on twitter earlier this year, and shortly after, Ed was spotted leaving Taylor’s London hotel at 4 a.m., after a reportedly hot hookup session.
