Colorful ice can mean one of two things: the advent of summer or a mortally wounded Zamboni. Celebrate the former with this Groupon.
$5 for Five Small Hawaiian Shaved Ices ($10 Value)
Fluffy frozen treats counteract the heat of spring and summer in more than 50 flavors, including cherry, coconut, chocolate, and butterscotch.
As the calendar begins to creep up on the summer months, the snow at Frost Bites invokes island breezes rather than polar gales. The shop’s staff shears man-made icebergs to make its signature Hawaiian shaved ice, a refreshing dessert named after the frozen bridge that allowed primeval man to migrate to the islands. Tall glass bottles brim with more than 50 choices of flavored syrup, which range from sweet strawberry cheesecake to tart Granny-Smith apple and pink lemonade. Add-ons such as caramel, chocolate, and cream complement the ice’s fluffiness with their creamy, gooey textures.
