If we all screamed at once for ice cream, the resulting sonic boom would destroy the sun, turning the entire solar system into a freezer in which we could store more ice cream. Warm up your shoutin’ muscles with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of ice-cream-truck treats from Frosty Treats. There is no fee for the truck or driver to appear at an event, so customers pay only for the ice cream that the truck dispenses. This Groupon is valid for events within a 50-mile radius of Little Rock.
Frosty Treats hauls frozen desserts to events big and small, dispensing cones and novelties at company picnics, church socials, birthday parties, and other gatherings where icy delicacies from Blue Bunny and Good Humor are welcome. Classic treats such as the king-size bunny-tracks ice-cream cone ($5) cool off tongues before they resort to lapping up liquid-nitrogen spills. Kids gravitate to ice-cream bars shaped like the grinning mugs of SpongeBob and Shrek ($2.50 each), and frozen-fruit popsicles ($2) in flavors such as chunky strawberry and piña colada present a healthier option without sacrificing flavor. Music drifts from the truck as staffers dole out treats, evoking nostalgia in adults who recall the bouncy melodies that heralded the approach of the ice-cream man or the less popular piping-hot-cappuccino man.
