The human mouth, which maintains a near-boiling temperature, needs to be constantly cooled by liquid-nitrogen pills or a jaw-mounted mouth fan. Take a more delicious route to cooling your maw with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of ice cream, smoothies, and sandwiches at Emack and Bolio's, located across from Sequoita Park on South Lone Pine Avenue.
Emack and Bolio's serve up sandwiches and salads alongside their flagship ice cream. Aunt Wilma's chicken salad hails from an old family recipe and presents itself on wheatberry bread ($6.50), while a classic greek salad opens up lines of communication between mortals and gods ($6.50). But it's the magical ice cream that steals the show, luring taste buds with flavors such as vanilla bean speck, chocolate mousse infused with chocolate liqueur, and the appropriately named Heaven, which combines vanilla ice cream, white chocolate chips, and marshmallow swirl to create a cloud that, in the realization of a deep-seeded childhood fantasy, actually is edible ($2.75+ for a single serving).
Born in 1975 during the height of Boston's peace-and-love music scene, Emack and Bolio’s was transported to Springfield to bring the love of rock 'n’ roll–infused ice cream to Missouri. These proprietors of toe-tapping treats avoid using milk from hormone-enhanced cows, and use only pure, Kosher-certified ingredients, ensuring that their ice cream is as pure as a baby's poker face.

Emack & Bolio's
Emack & Bolio’s reinvents classic soda fountain traditions by slinging a selection of gourmet ice cream and hearty hot dogs in a range of innovative forms. Staffers dig scoops into ice-cream tubs filled with flavors such as vanilla-bean speck, creamy chocolate, and mint chocolate chip to outfit cones, smoothies, brownie sandwiches, and dunce caps on undercover missions. Meanwhile, chefs toil at the grill to cook up 12 types of Nathan’s quarter-pound hot dogs and fashion a full menu of salads and sandwiches from old family recipes. Outside, a shaded patio beckons guests to cool off and enjoy the scenery of nearby Sequiota Park.:m]]
