A dizzying array of indulgent chocolate sundaes and signature ice cream flavors housed inside waffle cones await visitors to Cold Stone Creamery. On a frozen granite slab, staff skillfully mix and prepare heaps of ice cream along with avalanches of toppings. Choose one from a wide array of flavors which include cake batter and coffee-flavored.

The luck required to pull a winning combo at Half Nuts, unlike the chance involved in scaling Gumdrop Mountain, is little because of the superabundance of savory sweets and a pleasant lack of molasses mudmonsters. Half Nuts stocks sugar-free candy, a huge variety of nostalgic sweets, and the 50 official flavors of Jelly Belly jellybeans. Swish open a bag and fill it with assorted nuts ($1.79–$17.99 per pound), chocolates ($3.99–$13.99 per pound), and unwrapped candy ($1.79-$7.99 per pound). Or, prepare for little-red-hooded rides to Grandma's house with a gift basket full of chocolate-covered nuts and color-coded jellybeans (starting at $19.69 for a two-pound basket). This Groupon is not valid for M&M's.
More than 110 flavors of Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream take turns guest-starring on Babe's monthly menu.

Cold Spoons Gelato dishes up frozen Italian treats made from fresh ingredients, compressing mounds of flavor into a sweet, mouth-massaging dairy delight.

Mix, match, and blend gelato flavors to cure clinically depressed taste buds, or try a gelato shake ($4.75), which blends the singular snack with the bone-, teeth-, and facial-hair-strengthening power of milk. Drop in to grab a quick dessert after a dinner out, or pick up a to-go pint and share a spoonful with a special someone or special taxi driver.
Treats by Bernadette silences clamoring sweet teeth with a menu of delicious confections whipped up from scratch. Crisp granny smith apples rest behind house-made caramel armor, which protects the fruit from hungry mouths with delicious inefficacy, and Ghirardelli milk chocolate disguises strawberries' crimson hides with drizzles of white chocolate. Cupcakes represent the missing link between miniature and full-size cakes, with moist, crumbly bodies regally adorned with fluffy crowns of frosting. Customers choose caramel, vanilla, coconut, or red velvet flavors, mixing and matching to keep taste buds from becoming complacent and registering every flavor as "not broccoli."
