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 $4, you get $8 worth of hand-packed pints, frozen cakes, and more at three Ben & Jerry’s locations. Choose from the Shops at Friendly Center, Palladium at Deep River, or Harper Hill Commons location.
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. The shop, marked by a soothing blue awning, offers a variety of frozen confections, from large milkshakes and smoothies ($5.71) to an ice-cream in a waffle cone ($5.20) or a small ice cream ($4.12). Spoon the cuddly depths of Ben & Jerry’s famous original flavors, like Cake Batter, Cherry Garcia, Imagine Whirled Peace, Triple Caramel Chunk, Peanut Brittle, Chunky Monkey, Half Baked, Coffee Coffee BuzzBuzzBuzz, New York Super Fudge Chunk, Orange and Cream, and more.
The frozen creamery is also a proficient cakery with a proud stock of frozen cakes (starting at $18.40 for a small round). Up to three Groupons can be purchased with today's deal, and although only one may be used per visit, that merely provides more incentive to keep extras on hand for ice-cream emergencies or real emergencies that could be remedied by applying a burlap sack filled with Half Baked to the problem area.

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.
