What You'll Get
If the cruel temptations of the Play-Doh Fun Factory taught the world anything, it's that mouthwatering creations are more gratifying when they're actually edible. Swoop spoon-first into a scoop of icy eats with today's deal: for $5, you get $10 worth of ice cream at Scoops Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Store, nestled within the historic Edgewater Hotel.
Named for both the instrument of the enterprise and the creamy flavor-bomb that instrument releases, Scoops dishes, cones, and sundaes up a wide range of rich Hershey's ice cream flavors. Hershey's (no relation to the famed chocolatier) frozen concoctions are made from the finest ingredients such as pure vanilla and fresh cream, and promise to please even the most discerning aficionado of freezered treats. Top a regular cone with a scoop of rich chocolate ($2.82), or leave a large dish of the white-chocolate roadrunner raspberry ($3.76) in the dust with a series of sweet scoops. For bigger hungers, indulge in an Edgewater sundae, which tops old-fashioned vanilla creamed curds with brownie, hot fudge, whipped cream, nuts, and a cherry ($4.23 for a small).
Situated within the historic Edgewater Hotel, Scoops was designed to evoke the vintage charm of yesteryear's soda fountains. Little ones can play sugar-high barfly atop the stools that line the bar while nostalgic, time-traveling couples coo by the window at a bistro table. Period antiques adorn the cozy creamery and are sure to evoke memories of your post-war adolescence eating ice cream, egg cream, and coned creamed corn at the town's soda fountain.
