The widely despised tradition of ending Valentine’s Day by lying in a bed of roses usually results in a thorny, bandaged mess. Cap off the day on a sweeter note with today’s deal: for $10, you get the Maggie Moo’s Valentine's Day Special. Your Groupon covers a succulent cake for two ($11.99), one quart of pink champagne sorbet ($7.25), and all the tasty taxes, a $21 total value. Pick up your treats at Maggie Moo's Peabody Place location.
Maggie Moo’s preps its premium super-soft ice cream daily. Each location churns its own batches, eliminating the risk of freezer burn and motion sickness in the delicately structured compound. The Dream Cake for Two starts with a molten base of rich chocolate cake, with a heaping cylinder of strawberry ice cream perched upon it. Chocolate ganache covers the peak and runs down the sides like the springs of a magic chocolate mountain. A dipped strawberry perches at the summit, the lonely monarch of a fleeting empire. Spoon a couple of soft globs of champagne sorbet into a glass slipper to join the dessert foray. The quart will likely outlast your feast, leaving you extras for the next day.
This meal is best served cold and paired with soft candlelight and the airplane sound effects associated with romantic spoon feeding. Add in some rose petals and the whimsical Sounds of Whale Calling Volume II: Narwhals for the perfect cherry atop a heart-filled day.
Your Groupon covers tax.
- The first-ever Ice Cream Cupcake (but you’ll want to eat it with a spoon) consists of MaggieMoo’s award winning dark chocolate ice cream, a layer of moist chocolate cake and marshmallow filling, all topped with rich chocolate ganache and a swirl of icing. – Phil Lempert
- Maggie Moo's makes their ice cream right there in the shop. And each flavor can be customized with the add-ins of your choice. For example, what about cheesecake ice cream with fresh raspberries mixed in? – Teresa R. Simpson, About.com
- A yummy feast for the eyes as well as the tummy awaits each Maggie Moo customer walking through the door of the cutest little ice cream cafe' you'll ever treat yourself to. – heath_meeks, Citysearch
- Overall, I have to say it was pretty good. The cinnamon had a nice mix of creamy and spicy notes to it and the Oreo Cookies tasted like they were fresh grounded that day and haven't been sitting around. The combo between the two made for an excellent scoop of ice cream. – Chris C., Yelp
