Unlike American ice, which is known for preserving William Howard Taft, Italian ice is known the world over as a tasty and delicate treat. Today's Groupon gets you access to the frozen delicacy: for $8, you get $20 worth of chilled treats at Frozen Crush in Northridge.
Frozen Crush offers 16 flavors of their dairy-free treat, each one made daily from fruit puree. Flavors can be stacked, or combined with fat-free yogurt, to create a blend or swirl of icy and creamy goodness that is not to be confused with ice cream. After perusing the focused menu, dive spoon-first into a large cup ($4) packed with both lemon and cherry ice, or take home a quart ($8) of the horchata or root-beer flavors for drink-inspired sweetness. When dreams of dairy hijack your brain, add a cream-kissed layer to the cold cup and top the fat-free vanilla yogurt with cotton-candy ice ($4–$5), or opt to blend orange ice and yogurt into a beautiful Creamsicle-esque creation ($4–$5). Sugar-free options are also available for dentists who practice what they preach.
A vibrant, Technicolor, 45-foot long graffiti wall serves as a backdrop for the fun-for-all-ages eatery. A 40-inch TV, an in-house Xbox, and classic arcade game tables equipped with Pac-Man and Frogger complete the festive space, making it an ideal place to relocate a 30th-birthday party after being unfairly asked to leave the neighborhood Chuck E. Cheese.
