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 $5, you get $10 worth of ice cream at Marble Slab Creamery in McAllen.
Crafting notably delectable frozen treats in small batches, Marble Slab Creamery utilizes ingredients from around the world and fresh dairy from local farms to percolate palates with tongue-hugging ice cream. Just like tax forms, chef-inspired concoctions are prepared on frozen marble slabs to ensure optimal freshness and easy customization. The slab enables expert dippers and mixers to gently incorporate dustings such as candies and nuts. Grab a heaping dish of original flavors ($4.99 for a small size) such as pumpkin, honey, bubblegum, mango, and amaretto, or opt for the hefty large ($6.99). Transport any cool, refreshing ice cream in a convenient container including take-home pints ($6.99) and quarts ($8.99), or sip on a velvety-smooth shake ($4.99) that also acts as passable bicycle-chain lubricant for the ride home.

About 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 from a list of more than 60 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 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.
