Dessert, like revenge and Christmas dinner, is often best served ice cold. Today’s Groupon gets you access to the town’s top frozen treats: for $4, you get $8 worth of bubble tea and Italian ice at Bubbles ’n Ice.
The North Miami Beach Italian-ice and bubble-tea shop specializes in frosty cold treats to cool summer-warmed bodies. The chilly-treat experts offer more than 30 flavors of their signature bubble teas ($4.25)—fresh-brewed iced tea with small tapioca pearls at the bottom of each cup, served with a thick straw for sucking up the gummy-esque spheres. The creamy and mostly fat-free tea is made from fresh fruit and milk and comes in fruity flavors such as pomegranate and passion fruit, as well as latte-inspired brews such as the caffe latte and caramel rooibos. If tea isn’t your treat of choice, opt for a refreshing Italian ice ($2.99 and up) and dine on one of nearly 60 flavors in two iced styles. The fat-free and dairy-free water ice pleases with flavors such as rootbeer and cotton candy, and low-fat cream ices such as bananas foster, cannoli, and chocolate peanut butter will satisfy dairy-deprived palates. With nine no-sugar-added and sugar-free options, the Italian-ice treats are sweet options for sugar strikers and diabetics.
The minimalist, modern treatery is awash in pale yellow, and free WiFi makes it an ideal place to catch up on Internet rebroadcasts of vintage “The Price Is Right” episodes. Stop in for a quick and cool snack, or make a post-Bikram pit stop to lower heightened body temperatures and put high-calorie brownie cravings on ice. In addition to cold sips and spoons, Bubbles ’n Ice also offers whole-wheat cookies ($1.99), muffins ($2.99), and cupcakes ($3.99) to satisfy oven-fresh wheat eaters.
Limit one per visit. Don’t forget to present your Groupon to the cashier before ordering.
