This is the first time I have ever tried Vampire Penguin and I can say that I was impressed. The staff was so nice, fast, and knowledgeable about their product. I shared a large Smoreos with my with my husband, and it was more than enough for the both of us. It's so great that they are dairy free too! 10/10. Would go again.

A very tasty, refreshing treat, one large is more than enough for 2 people to share, so the voucher is easily enough for 4 people, perhaps Groupon could change it to two $5 vouchers.Don't plan on it being handed to you 30 seconds after you order it, it is a few minutes prep time for each one, but worth it.

From Our Editors

Since opening on Halloween in 2013, Vampire Penguin has enjoyed an avalanche of success thanks to its addictive shaved snow. Not to be confused with shaved ice, shaved snow is a traditional Taiwanese dessert trimmed from ice cream-like blocks. At Vampire Penguin, these blocks typically don't contain dairy—instead, they're made of fruit concentrate, non-dairy cream, and sugar, and when that mixture freezes, a machine shaves it down into ultra-fine ribbons.

Much like a slumbering invisible friend, the resulting treat is airy and a prime target for toppings, such as fruits, syrups and candies. Vampire Penguin's founders, brothers Leo San Luis and Paolo Angelo San Luis, have parlayed their original location's success into numerous other shops, including one on K Street in downtown Sacramento. As for the name: "It's cute but not cute," Paolo once told the Sacramento Business Journal, alluding to how shaved snow is kind of one thing, and kind of another thing, too.
