In order to safely transfer flavored snow from the cherry-covered Alps in which it falls, professional snow importers have to transport millions of fragile snowballs in tiny paper cones. Taste the frozen fruits of their labor with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of frozen treats at Ice Queens, located on Rosewood Avenue.
Run by the members of the Texas Rollergirls roller derby league, Ice Queens dishes out a well-planted elbow's worth of all-natural snow cones, frozen yogurt, and other cold delights. Sweetened with all-natural cane sugar, Ice Queens' New Orleans-style sno-balls vary with five sizes ($1-$4.50) and more than 75 flavors, such as apple pie, liger’s blood, dill pickle, and banana. As an organic alternative, Ice Queen can flavor its soft slush-orbs with organic flavors, such as lychee and ginger ale ($1 extra), or sugar-free flavors sweetened with all-natural stevia ($1 extra). Ice Queens also serves a different flavor of non-fat frozen yogurt every day ($2), and on weekends—weather permitting—the queens spin cotton candy ($3) by hand, an ideal treat for sitting underneath the shaded parking area.
