Angry censors banned Elvis from television screens in 1956 when his progressively melting form revealed that he was, in fact, made of iced cream. Taste unrestricted Technicolor sweetness with today's deal: for $3, you get $6 worth of ice cream, frozen yogurt, and more at Scoops Treatery, located at Penn and Memorial.
Fresh from its opening in May 2010, the family-owned Scoops Treatery specializes in candying kissers with luscious glacial goodies. Snag a scoop from one of more than 22 ice-cream flavors, each handmade on the premises each day (one scoop $2.89, two scoops $3.79, three scoops $4.69). Choose to erect your tasty tundra tower in either a cup, cone, or waffle bowl, and then further alter its confectionary chemistry with any of a huge selection of savory mix-ins and chocolate neutrons. Mixed nuts, double-dip toppings, and a cherry crown bedeck the kingly sundae ($4.29), which can be flanked with an ice-cream cookie as royal bodyguard ($2.50). Busy bees and road warriors can binge on-the-go with a neatly contained pint ($5.99).
