What You'll Get
Early attempts at frozen dessert included snow pies, icicle tarts, and glacier soufflés, though arctic chefs quickly grew tired of polar bears carjacking their ice-cream truck. Enjoy the modern comforts of chilled sweets with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of ice cream, smoothies, coffee and more at Maroon Bells of Colorado. Choose between the following locations: at the Southlands Mall in Aurora or the Centennial location at Arapahoe and Quebec. This deal is not valid for chocolate.
Borrowing its name from the eponymous double-peaked mountain, Maroon Bells of Colorado whips up its own fresh, premium ice cream, sundaes, shakes, ice cream cakes and more. Dairy diners can lick a chilly swirl of ice cream (from $1.95) in flavors such as Bell’s banana pudding, blueberry cheesecake, and rocky road, before selecting a free topping to layer the creamy hill with goodies such as gummy bears and M&Ms (additional toppings $0.50/each). Savor every sugary morsel of a butterscotch toffee sundae ($4.45+), or cool esophageal flare-ups with an espresso-flavored shake ($4.35 for a small) or a Georgia peach smoothie ($4.35 for a small). Grouponers can also think of new ice cream flavors in the store’s Create Our Next Flavor contest; the originators of winning flavors will get a $25 gift card, the chance to taste their creation in stores starting in July, and the tingly feeling of total dairy supremacy.
Ideal for celebrating a birthday, Maroon Bells’ fresh ice cream cakes ($24.95 for an 8”) house a rich chunk of cake beneath a layer of ice cream and topped with chocolate or vanilla icing. Cake’s spunky little sister, the ice-cream cupcake ($12.95 for six), tap-dances into hearts with a darling demeanor and a bevy of lip-smacking choices including cookie dough, s’mores, and sprinkles. A warm cup of premium roast coffee (from $1.45) blankets shivering stomach lining, while a take-home quart of Maroon Bells’ ice cream ($6.95) can accompany midnight viewings of movies about crime-fighting greeting cards.
