What You'll Get
Welcome to Groupon Philadelphia! For our inaugural deal, $8 gets you $20 worth of custom-blended ice cream, frozen yogurt, smoothies, chocolates, and more at Scoop DeVille located at 1734 Chestnut St.
You're probably thinking, "That sounds great, but I've never bought a car or a computer without first reading the Wikipedia definitions for car and computer—I'm not about to buy a Groupon either without a briefing." Well neither would we, and since this is everyone's first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Philadelphia: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won't find anywhere else. We call it "collective buying power"!
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (50 for today's deal) sign up by the end of the day, you'll get a printable gift certificate in your inbox the next morning that you can use whenever you want (well, at least until the deal expires—today's expires on September 9, 2010). If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won't be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
It's nice to wake up to something new every day. Some people get their daily fix from desk calendars with a cute puppy and funny caption every morning. Groupon is like a desk calendar, except the puppy is an unbeatable discount and the funny caption is a profound reflection on the flowers and needles growing from life's cactus. We selflessly share our deep insights, hoping that you will join our mob of consumers, thus strengthening our collective buying power and commanding even better deals.
If you've tried auditioning your brilliant new ice-cream flavor at various creameries across the globe to no avail, Scoop DeVille fills the hollow bowl of your heart with a creamy blend of your own creation. Today's Groupon gets you $20 worth of custom-blended ice cream, frozen yogurt, smoothies, chocolates, and more for just $8 at Scoop DeVille.
Scoop DeVille's menu lets you choose from an extensive list of premium ingredients to seamlessly integrate into your ice cream or frozen yogurt of choice. Blend in toppings such as sprinkles, fruits, cookies, nuts, syrups, and candy, or invigorate your dessert with multiple cookie doughs (Oreo, oatmeal raisin, and peanut-butter chip), cereals, chocolates, wasabi powder, Nutella, spices, and more. If you're too overwhelmed to choose, try one of Scoop DeVille's suggestions, such as Wasabi Coconut Banana (vanilla ice cream/yogurt with coconut, bananas, and a touch of wasabi powder), Ooey Gooey (vanilla or chocolate ice cream/yogurt with peanut butter, covered in hot fudge, caramel, and marshmallow fluff), or Monique's Malt Mania (vanilla and chocolate ice cream/yogurt with brownies, Rice Krispies, and malt powder).
For other desserty options, use your Groupon toward one of Scoop's decadent cakes for your next celebration, or load up on chocolate-covered pretzels, almond bark, vanilla buttercreams, and more to get your steering wheel nice and sticky on the way home. Wash down your treats with one of Scoop's smoothies or coffee freezes.
Bring your child, your friend's child, or your friends and act like a child in Scoop DeVille's charming parlor. Decked out with cotton-candy pink walls and a black-and-white checkered floor, Scoop DeVille recalls an old-time candy store, where a malt with two straws makes a great photo-op, a delicious snack, a little romance, or a great way to befriend strangers.
- The atmosphere in the shop is perfect with it's [sic] checkered floors and pink & purple accents which really make you feel like your [sic] in an ice cream wonderland. – Gabrielle B., Yelp
- Scoop DeVille's ice cream is delicious, as well as incredibly diverse. There aren't many ice cream shops where you can get normal toppings (candy, nuts, etc.) as well as cereals, dough (more than just plain old chocolate chip cookie dough!), and even stuff like wheat germ in your ice cream. – keraniluna, Citysearch
- ...they have really great customer service too! I needed to order a few ice cream cakes...they were so easy to work. Everything turned out perfect. – crystalsprings, Citysearch
The panoply of flavors at Scoop Deville is a delight, and mixing and matching is highly encouraged. However, many amateur attempts at producing original ice-cream flavors have resulted in outright horrifying concoctions. Please do not attempt to recreate the following list of rejected flavors at home:
- Mint Chocolate Chimp
- Toffee and Thumbtack
- Bathtub Macadamia
- Blubber Swirl
- Gutter Pecan
