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 frozen eats and baked treats at Peaks Frozen Custard.
Peaks Frozen Custard gifts Seattle and its surroundings with a menu full of fresh, mountainous frozen custard and an array of baked goods. Custard crevasse scalers can build their own treats, beginning with a receptacle choice of a cake cone, sugar cone, or biodegradable dish; a house-made waffle cone or bowl can be substituted for $1 extra. From there, you’ll climb through vanilla, chocolate, or the rotating flavor of the day, choosing between a 3 oz. mini ($2.50), 8 oz. regular ($3.18), or 12 oz. large ($4.25) serving. After successfully mounting custard on cone, a tireless Peaks sherpa will honor your choice of topping ($.75 each) such as butterscotch, Butterfinger, gummy worms, or strawberry topping. Premium toppings such as fresh roasted pecans and house-made brownie chunks add epicurean decadence to majestically dotted custards ($1 each). Sundaes such as the hot fudge-drizzled, gourmet-chocolatey Mt. St. Helens ($5.95) tastily replicate a volcano’s impetuous topping eruptions and lactose lava. Peaks' special latte, a double shot of espresso topped with a dollop of frozen custard ($3.25), acts as a delicious diplomat between the menu’s frozen items and its hot coffee and espresso beverages.
Peaks Frozen Custard uses high-quality local ingredients whenever possible, and their dessert operations are environmentally sustainable. A partner to Snoqualmie Gourmet, Peaks Frozen Custard leads the battle against mass-produced sweets, and its homemade custard peaks are edible revelations, unlike the cliff at the center of Cliffhanger, which offered no sustenance no matter how many times Stallone futilely bit into it.

About Peaks Frozen Custard
Locally sourced, high-quality dairy goes into each and every fresh-churned batch at Peaks Frozen Custard. Salted caramel cashew, banana chocolate chip, and cinnamon and honey are among the shop’s daily-changing flavors, scooped into homemade waffle cones and bowls or blended into create-your-own shakes and avalanches. Decadent two-scoop sundaes, such as the regionally-inspired Mount Rainier, feature a house fudge sauce, pecans, and an edible representation of the peak’s own crowning cherry. Slices of carrot and chocolate cake sate sweet-tooth cravings without the risk of head-freeze, and patrons can warm up with locally sourced Lighthouse espresso transformed into lattes and Americanos.
