Though any emotion can be read into the Mona Lisa’s mysterious smile, scientists have identified the glint in her eyes as simple lust for dairy products. Tantalize portraits with today’s Groupon Marble Slab Creamery’s Amarillo location. Choose between the following options:
- For $5, you get $10 worth of ice cream and other frozen treats.
- For $12, you get an ice-cream pizza with two mix-ins (a $24.95 value).
Since 1983, Marble Slab Creamery has used its cold-marble technique to create ice creams and frozen treats fresh in-store. Customers look on admiringly as expert marble mavens take fresh ice-cream flavors—which include distinctive varieties such as peanut-butter banana, European chocolate rum, and the pineapple-tinged pina colada—and blend in any of more than two dozen mix-in ingredients. Mix-in options include familiar candies and fresh fruits, which smoothly acclimate into each slab-spun creamy concoction and can find solace in a spoon-ready cup, a fresh baked hand-rolled waffle cone, or in the missing marble hands of Venus de Milo ($3.99/small one-mix-in cone or cup; $5.99/large).
Those who prefer ice cream served flat for easy storage under loveseats can slice into Marble Slab’s new 14-inch ice-cream pizza, which has a cake bottom and gets bedecked with two sweet toppings from the mix-ins menu. Each pizza arrives with Marble Slab Creamery’s homemade ice cream instead of a crust, luscious red icing instead of tomato sauce, and honorable gingerbread delivery men instead of last slice-stealing roommates.
Marble Slab Creamery
The warm aroma of freshly baked waffle cones envelops every nook and cranny of Marble Slab Creamery, revving up guests’ senses with the promise of impending decadence. As the hand-rolled cones tan in their ovens, the store’s staff bustles about the premises whipping up fresh batches of super-premium ice cream in the on-site creamery and helping patrons select a flavor from a list of more than 50 options. This chef-driven dedication to gourmet ice cream began in 1983 with the company’s founding in Houston, Texas, when two French chefs were enlisted to create a recipe for Marble Slab Creamery’s signature sweet-cream ice cream using their culinary expertise.
Today, staffers utilize the frozen-slab technique of ice-cream architecture, scooping each customer’s choice of ice cream and mixins onto a chilled marble slab to mix the separate elements into one customized mélange. Though specializing in cone-based ice-cream treats, Marble Slab Creamery also offers a menu full of other scream-worthy confections including cakes, shakes, and ice cream cupcakes.
