An ice-cream parlor is like a choose-your-own-adventure novel, only instead of the inevitable nuclear whitewater dinosaur catastrophe, you get delicious ice cream topped according to your whim. Take a journey into the heart of flavor with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of custom-crafted ice cream at Cold Stone Creamery.
Cold Stone Creamery ice cream, which is made fresh in stores every day, inhabits a quantum flux between soft-serve and traditional ice cream, with a rich, creamy texture that whispers tales of its super-premium quality as it glides over taste buds. Choose your favorite ice cream from among dozens of silky flavors, such as irish cream and butter pecan. The ice cream generously welcomes dozens of toppings as traditional as crumbled cookies and chopped nuts or as quirky as granola, black licorice, and pieces from magnetic poetry sets. Sufferers of premature brain freeze who are unable to invent a creamy concoction can try a Cold Stone Signature creation, such as the almond-studded and caramel-slathered Coffee Lovers Only or the Peanut Butter Cup Perfection with Reese's peanut-butter cups and fudge. The Frankencream you desire will be scooped cold off the grill into a freshly made waffle cone or bowl. Ice-cream creations are priced from $3.49 to $4.99, depending on size.
