Though any emotion can be read into the Mona Lisa's mysterious smile, scientists have identified the glint in her eyes as simple lust for dairy products. Tantalize portraits with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get a four-treat punch card to use across four visits at Sheridan’s Frozen Custard in Tucker (a $20 value; each punch is worth $5).
The dessert-concoctors at Sheridan's whip together milk, cream, sugar, and eggs to form the custardy groundwork for more than 35 enticing toppings and a full menu of treats. A chocolate or vanilla cone ($1.99) with an add-on such as wild cherries, gummy worms, or pretzels can school a tongue in the differences between ice cream and custard—namely custard’s more velvety texture and inability to scuba dive, both results of minimal air content. Complex concretes ($3.49+) come in myriad forms, including the Grant’s grasshopper, a blend of freshly made vanilla custard with mint, chocolate chips, and crumbled Oreo cookies, and caramel pretzel crunch, best eaten into a microphone. To enjoy custard for breakfast or in the shower without judgment, patrons can also snag a pint ($3.43) or quart ($5.43) to take home.
