During the Ice Cream Age, humans survived by eating the vast, slow-churned glaciers and avoiding the dangers of hot-fudge-sundae pits. Taste history-making flavor with today's Groupon to Marble Slab Creamery in The Woodlands. Choose between the following options:
- For $7, you get $15 worth of ice-cream treats.
- For $14, you get an 8-inch ice-cream cake (a $27.99 value).
The dairy masons at Marble Slab Creamery build made-to-order ice-cream treats on a sturdy, frozen marble counter. When crafting a custom cone or cup ($4.19–$6.19), first choose one of the original ice-cream flavors, which include banana rum, black walnut, bubblegum, mango, and amaretto (flavors may vary). One of the expert dippers and mixers gently incorporates your choice of candy, nuts, fruit, or enthusiasm into the ice cream on the spot before placing the freshly kneaded delight into a cup or fresh-baked waffle cone.
For more shareable, portable pleasure, sweet teeth can also hang onto an 8-inch ice-cream cake ($27.99), which can come in varieties such as smooth mint masterpiece, cookie dough drizzle, and swiss cocoa buttercup. If desired, Marble Slab's dessert designers can decorate any chilly confections with edible artwork including words of encouragement or an edible, detestable subpoena.
While not covered by this Groupon, Marble Slab also specializes in catering large events, from office parties to Smith family reunions.
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 premium ice cream in the onsite creamery and helping patrons select a flavor. 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 mix-ins onto a chilled marble slab to mix the separate elements into one custom 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 pie à la mode.
