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 Marble Slab Creamery sensory experience begins by just walking past the storefront, where the buttery scent of fresh-baked waffle cones drifts out into the air. Gourmet ice creams are freshly crafted on site from Marble Slab’s original recipe, enticing customer's eyes with a rainbow of colors. Once clients have made a flavor selection, they choose from a smorgasbord of mix-ins, from fresh fruit to nuts to candy and crumbled cookies, which an ice cream chef then hand-folds in atop a frosty marble slab before packing the finished custom-designed flavor masterpiece into a house-made waffle cone.
In addition to procuring hand-held treats, Marble Slab Creamery can send creations home in a variety of other formats, such as ice cream cakes, cupcakes, and hand-packed quarts, or in the capable hands of a catering team for sprucing up special events such a corporate get-togethers or school functions with sundae bars in tow.
