Although derided as ship killers and sea sloths, icebergs provide vital shelter to a range of species, including penguins, seals, and strongly disliked sea captains. Maroon parched tongues on mini-bergs with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of hawaiian shaved ice and Dippin’ Dots at Frosty Frog Shaved Ice in Provo.
Frosty Frog helps cool sun-soaked families with 38 flavors of shaved ice and an assortment of Dippin’ Dots ice cream. Fill an ice cup ($2.25–$3.75) with classic fruity tastes of watermelon, grape, or strawberry, or vow to remain faithful to sunscreen over a frosty dollop of wedding-cake ice. For a sophisticated treat, opt for pink-champagne shaved ice, or, if you need to contact your inner child to learn of the locale of your lucky crayon, snag a serving of Ninja Turtle or Barbie ice. Adventurous patrons can doll up any flavor with a dose of "toxic waste," described as sour by most tongue scientists, or they can flap their mouth wings into the future for a heap of Dippin' Dots, flash-frozen into teeny ice-cream beads ($3.50/serving).
Frosty Frog cheerfully greets all comers with a straw roof, thatched walls, and teal trimming. A large sandbox for tykes completes customers' transportation to Pacific beaches. A horseshoe pit also is on hand to entertain humans while faraway Clydesdales test their accuracy by gracefully lobbing high heels across the barn. Frosty Frog hosts parties throughout the summer, enticing families to groove to DJ spins and bounce through inflatable play houses while savoring their icy eats.
