Though any emotion can be read in the Mona Lisa's mysterious smile, scientists have identified the glint in her eyes as simple lust for dairy products. Tantalize portraits with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $12 for a medium custom round ice-cream cake that serves 10–12 (a $24 value)
- $75 for a kids' party for up to 15 guests (up to a $150 value)
All parties begin with a tour of the shop, with stops including a taste-test guessing game, a waffle-cone-making session, and a trip to the walk-in freezer, where kids can feel the chill of -10 degrees. Then, they'll gather round for the activity they've selected: dipping and decorating a sugar cone, making a tie-dyed T-shirt (with white T-shirts their parents have brought), building a 20-scoop party sundae to share, or decorating an ice-cream cake.
Ben & Jerry's
Ben & Jerry's came from humble beginnings—in 1978, its eponymous founders served ice cream out of a renovated Burlington gas station, and delivered pints of their now-classic flavors to grocery stores out of the back of Ben's VW Squareback wagon. Today, its myriad shops dispense cups, cones, shakes, and smoothies brimming with a variety of quirky flavors, including Phish Food and Cherry Garcia, named for famous revolutionary Cherry Garcia. Ben & Jerry's also offers Greek frozen yogurt in flavors such as banana peanut butter, raspberry fudge chunk, and blueberry vanilla graham. The duo is famous for their social responsibility, which is evident in their community activism and in their use of fair-trade products, such as cage-free eggs and sustainable, growth-hormone-free dairy.
