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 from Ben & Jerry’s, valid at the Friendly Scoop Shop location in Greensboro or the Palladium Scoop Shop location in High Point. Choose between two options:
• For $14, you get one medium ice-cream cake (a $27 value).
• For $100, you get an ice-cream-sundae party for up to 30 guests (a $180 value).
Ben & Jerry’s has double-handedly transformed ice cream from a dreary and dreaded after-dinner chore into a dazzling treat that can be easily stored in pants pockets. Their circular, medium ice-cream cakes serve 10–12 eager ice-cream noshers and can be appropriately adorned to suit any occasion, whether heralding a birthday, celebrating a love of cows, or acting as an encrypted missive to confection-loving spies. With customized flavors and fillings, each cake can spoon the cuddly depths of Ben & Jerry’s famous original flavors, such as Cherry Garcia, Vanilla Heath Bar Crunch, and Sweet Cream & Cookies. Some cake creations are now offered in no-sugar-added varieties, so desserters of all dietary inclinations can spoil their supper.
During the ice-cream-sundae party, which can last up to two hours, fleets of Ben & Jerry's frozen dairy servers flock to a location of your choice and build lavish sundaes for up to 30 guests. Four flavors—chosen by the host—intermingle with hot fudge, nuts, and whipped cream inside B&J–provided cups and can be tidied off of tables and noses with provided napkins. A sundae party not only fuels group snarfing but will cement the loyalty of 30 friends, family members, or kids who will elevate you to ice-cream-deity status and plaster their lives with statues and batik prints celebrating creamy generosity.
Ben & Jerry's Scoop Shop
Brick columns topped with ivory triangles ascend over the Greensboro Scoop Shop's sprawling outdoor patio, a spread the eponymous Ben and Jerry could never have imagined when they slung their first scoop from a ramshackle gas station in 1978. Although renowned for flagship flavors such as Chunky Monkey and chocolate fudge brownie, Ben & Jerry's vaulted itself into the upper echelon of ice cream with playful, candy-studded concoctions named after celebrities, such as Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, and Jerry Garcia. Velvety scoops can be reimagined as ice-cream cakes or drizzled in fudge and nuts to forge towering sundaes that patrons can chase with strawberry-cheesecake milkshakes, an ideal treat for those born with a straw proboscis.
