Although the sweetness of ice cream makes it a favorite among children, its chilly and invigorating properties make it essential for snowmen in need of a new snowball heart. Save a snowman while savoring a slice with today's Groupon: for $12, you get any large (16") artisan pizza and any flavor pint of ice cream at The Grand Ole Creamery in St. Paul (up to a $24 value, depending on the pizza).
Scooping out more than 200 varieties of ice cream, The Grand Ole Creamery is prepared to satisfy a plethora of palates. The line to the popular establishment has been known to reach the street during busy hours, but customers may spend the short wait ruminating over which of the rotating cast of 31 icy treats to consume. Each patient and self-reflective patron will be rewarded with a tasty pint (a $6 value) picked from flavors such as the pleasantly cordial sweet cream, a tastefully extroverted birthday cake, or the mysterious and brooding black walnut. Grown-up diners are allowed to save supper for last with any large artisan meal-discs from the pizzeria's menu. Options include a cheese pizza with fresh homemade mozzarella (a $14 value) and up to four toppings ($1 each) can be added; the Three Little Pigs, which is peppered with sausage, pepperoni, and canadian bacon (a $17 value); or a Veggie with white sauce, topped with zucchini, eggplant, shallots, and other ground-grown treats (a $16 value). In addition to receiving gastronomic satisfaction, customers will have their nostrils serenaded by the sweet olfactory tunes of the Creamery's home-baked waffle cones, hand-rolled in the store with a chocolate malt ball buried at the bottom. Pizza is available from 4 to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and 12 p.m. through 10 p.m. on weekends.
