When ice cream doesn't make a person scream with delight, it elicits Oreo cookie tears, which cause slight discomfort to tear ducts unaccustomed to passing anything thicker than whole milk. Cry a delicious river and give your tongue a shiver with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of premium ice cream, frozen yogurt, Italian ice, and more at Babe's Ice Cream in the Bay View area.
More than 110 flavors of Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream take turns guest-starring on Babe's monthly menu. This month provides more than 30 indulgent flavors, such as chocolate marshmallow and horchata, as well as alternative selections of sugar-free caramel ripple or espresso Oreo soy. Snag a sugar or wafer cone ($2.70 for a single scoop), or shoot for the sugary stars with a raspberry blast or piña colada smoothie ($3.75). Babe's also serves up specialty sundaes and shakes, while quarts of ice cream ($7.25) are available to be taken home in car-trunk freezers or stomach igloos.
Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream harvests its crop of creamy goods from the cookie-dough trees and ice-cream cow udders of Madison, allowing Babe's customers to celebrate state pride while also silencing the voices in their heads with well-timed brain freezes. Visit Babe's Ice Cream, named one of 2009's Top Five Desserts on CityVoter, and save America's Dairyland the trouble of having to again import ice cream from Antarctica's mines.
