What You'll Get
The human mouth, which maintains a near-boiling temperature, needs to be constantly cooled by liquid-nitrogen pills or a jaw-mounted mouth fan. Take a more delicious route to cooling your maw with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a shaved-ice birthday-party package from Kona Ice of Shreveport-Bossier (a $95 value).
Kona Ice enlivens events, fundraisers, parties, and birthday celebrations with a traveling, tropical-themed truck that dispenses flavored shaved ice of every variety to overheated and undersugared mouths. The island-music-playing truck can ferry treats for up to 20 party guests anywhere inside the city limits of Shreveport-Bossier (or further for an additional fee), bestowing a small Kona ice, flower lei, and palm-sized steel-drum band to each guest. Kids pick their own flavors, dispensing flavored syrup into their ice cups from the Flavorwave, a series of truck-side spouts, allowing customized taste combinations to suit finicky young palates or to surprise jaded tongues deadened from years of licking postal stamps. Birthday boys or girls are gifted a king-sized Kona ice, Kona Ice T-shirt, goodie bag, and a dog tag emblazoned with the newly older tyke's picture, ensuring easy identification in piles of postparty nappers.
