Having an ice-cream flavor named in your honor is considered one of America's greatest accolades, alongside winning a Tony award for Best Use of Laser Pointer in a Musical. Today's Groupon fills ice-cream chambers with famous flavors: for $5, you get $10 worth of frozen treats at Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop in Saratoga Springs.
Ben & Jerry’s Saratoga Springs Scoop Shop, part of a nationwide franchise boasting more than 30 years of socially conscious sweets-making, gratifies the senses with a vast menu of frosty desserts. More than 25 flavors of ice cream, including classics such as the cherry- and chocolate-filled Cherry Garcia, bulge from freshly baked waffle cones or adorn freshly washed chins. Fill a chocolate-dipped cone with one scoop ($3.25) of chocolate low-fat frozen yogurt and thick fudge brownies, or fuel a late night with two scoops ($4) of Coffee Coffee BuzzBuzzBuzz—coffee ice cream mingled with chunks of fair-trade-certified espresso-bean chocolate. Sweets-seekers can partake in an indulgent meal of sundaes and shakes ($5.14 each), watch waists with a sugar-free ice cream or fruity sorbet, or inquire about the store’s selection of ice-cream cakes, coolers, and sentient spoons.
The pricing mentioned above excludes NYS sales tax.
