If the cruel temptations of the Play-Doh Fun Factory taught the world anything, it's that mouthwatering creations are more gratifying when they're actually edible. Fabricate and feast with today's side deal. For $3, you get a medium cup of build-your-own ice cream, frozen yogurt, or sorbet with up to two toppings at iCream in Wicker Park, a $7 value with tax included.
Desserts are made on the spot from scratch before the anticipatory googly eyes of future feasters. Start by choosing your frozen base. Ice cream comes in regular and light varieties, and organic and soymilk concoctions are available for $.79 extra. Frozen yogurt comes in low-fat and nonfat, and sorbet comes in green machine, blue machine, mighty mango, and berry blast. From here, add a boost of flavor and touch of color. All flavors are also available in sugar-free or unsweetened and include such delights as almond, cream soda, strawberry, vanilla, and many more. Colors span the Roy G. Biv spectrum with guest appearances by pink and caramel. Pick two mix-ins from a lengthy lineup of possibilities that range from healthy to indulgent. Call in the roller of big cigars, and bid him whip bananas, gummi bears, pistachios, granola, nuts, and more into your customized bowl of cool goodness.
You can purchase up four Groupons and use multiples during your visit. Feed a family of four, treat yourself and three Pound Puppies on the dog-friendly patio, or go on two dates with two different dates on two separate dates.
- They mix it up in a big old fashioned mixer, add the magic, and it freezes before your eyes. Its [sic] like a fun science project! I appreciate the non-dairy and low-fat/sugar-free options too. – Amilu, Urbanspoon
