Before modern refrigeration, ice cream was considered an unattainable luxury, like eating steak on a stick or walking home uphill both ways through the snow. Frolic in frozen convenience with today's Groupon to Neighbors General Store and Ice Cream Parlor in Port Orange. Choose between the following options:
- For $5, you get $10 worth of ice cream or frozen treats.
- For $8, you get two quarts of hand-packed ice cream (a $15.98 value). Orders for quarts must be made at least one day in advance.
Neighbors lures sweet teeth with a menu a-shiver with fresh frozen delights, ranging from sundaes to banana splits. Like a cryogenically frozen genie, a menagerie of 30 flavors of hand-dipped ice cream ($2.69/scoop; $3.89 for two scoops) grants wishes for respite from the summer heat, enrapturing taste buds in cups, cones, and waffle bowls ($0.79 extra). A luscious lineup of ice-cream parlor treats including floats ($3.99) and cherry-topped milk shakes ($4.99) deliver dessert in a variety of tasty packages, and 28 fruity flavors of Hawaiian Shave Ice ($1.99–$6.99) cool overheated tongues with the authentic iciness of Oahu's ever-frozen shores. For the heartier palate or industrial-size tongue, quarts ($7.99) of any of Neighbors' current flavors are available with 24-hour notice.
As patrons savor the sweetness of creamy desserts and icy treats they can revel in Neighbors' snazzy magenta and green décor, which evokes a fun, modern take on a traditional ice-cream parlor, replete with two-tone checkered floors, stool-lined bars, and clerks who speak Morse code.
