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 Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of snowballs, ice cream, and barbecue at Shiver Shack Snowballs in Mandeville.
Shiver Shack Snowballs helps patrons combat summer heat with frosty snowballs, ice cream made with pure cane sugar, and Memphis-style barbecue. Snowballs ($2.75 for a medium), a marriage of shaved ice and flavored saccharine syrups, eliminate summertime swelter and nagging existential doubts with dozens of flavors, including green apple, peppermint, and sugar-free iterations such as mango and wedding cake ($0.50 extra). Lower tongues' core temperatures with a refreshing frozen yogurt ($2.50), or scarf down a chocolate sundae ($2.50) any day of the week. Diners seeking further sustenance can fill bellies with the pulled-pork sandwich ($5) and a side of corn grits, slaw, or smoked baked beans. Cool off outdoors under the shack's palm umbrellas or on its large covered porch, relishing the summer breeze and building an army of sugary, sentient snowmen.
