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 $6, you get $12 worth of ice-cream treats at Marble Slab Creamery. Choose from the following locations in San Antonio: Ingram Park Mall, La Cantera Mall, Legacy, North Star Mall, and Westover Hills.
Crafting notably delectable frozen treats in small batches, Marble Slab Creamery uses high-quality ingredients and creates all of its treats and waffle cones on-site to percolate palates with super-premium ice cream. Just like tax forms, chef-inspired concoctions are prepared on frozen marble slabs to ensure optimal freshness and easy customization.
Craft a custom cone or cup ($3.99–$5.99 on average, prices varying by location) by choosing from Marble Slab's original ice-cream flavors, including banana rum, black walnut, bubblegum, mango, and amaretto (flavors may vary by location). An experienced dairy dipper will gently incorporate 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. The delectable confections can also be mounded into cakes ranging from 8-inch birthday circles ($25.95) to fiesta-ready quarter-sheets ($37.95).
As of September 12, 2011, Marble Slab's Legacy and Westover Hills locations are no longer accepting Groupons.
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.
