We all scream for ice cream, especially when the truck is teetering on the edge of a cliff. Scoop to the rescue with this Groupon.
$15 for $30 Worth of Ice Cream
Display cases present 30 ice-cream flavours at a time, from pumpkin cheesecake to white chocolate. Attendants dig up and slap scoops onto a frozen marble slab, where they blend in mix-ins such as graham crackers and cookie dough. The resulting confection fills a freshly baked waffle cone ($5.49 for a medium) or cup. The shop also offers a selection of low-fat frozen yogourt, as well as half-litres ($7.25), cakes, and take-home items for the winter season.
Marble Slab Creamery
The warm aroma of freshly baked waffle cones envelops every nook and cranny of Marble Slab Creamery, revving up guests’ senses with the promise of impending decadence. As the hand-rolled cones tan in their ovens, the store’s staff bustles about the premises whipping up fresh batches of premium ice cream in the on-site creamery and helping patrons select a flavour from a list of 30 options. This chef-driven dedication to gourmet ice cream began in 1983 with the company’s founding in Houston, Texas, when two French chefs were enlisted to create a recipe for Marble Slab Creamery’s signature sweet-cream ice cream using their culinary expertise.
Today, staffers utilize the frozen-slab technique of ice-cream architecture, scooping each customer’s choice of ice cream and mix-ins onto a frozen marble slab to mix the separate elements into one custom mélange. Though specializing in cone-based ice-cream treats, Marble Slab Creamery also offers a menu full of other scream-worthy confections including cakes and shakes.
