Welcome to Groupon Virginia Beach! For our inaugural deal, $3 gets you $8 worth of frozen yogurt and toppings at The Skinny Dip Frozen Yogurt Bar in Landstown Commons, Hilltop Plaza, and the Providence Square Shopping Center.
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 Hampton Roads: 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 (15 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 in six months). 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 a 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.
The do-it-yourself craze has helped countless mannequins seize power from their designer overlords, despite their ineffectual, molded plastic hands. Today's Groupon harnesses that power into the delicious realm of dessert. For $3, you get $8 worth of frozen yogurt and fun toppings at The Skinny Dip Frozen Yogurt Bar. Your Groupon is good at the Landstown Commons, Hilltop Plaza, and Providence Square Shopping Center locations. The Skinny Dip was recently declared the best frozen dessert to melt in Virginia Beachian's mouths in the Best of Hampton Roads 2009 awards.
Like Terra or the fleeting partnerships in every square dance, the selection of yogurts and toppings at the self-serve yogurt eatery are in a state of perpetual rotation. Daily yogurt flavors for each location are posted on The Skinny Dip's Facebook page and range from classic vanilla and chocolate to the fruit-inspired banana royale, strawberry-daiquiri tart, and orange dreamsicle. Red velvet and sugar-free cake-batter yogurt will provide solace for forlorn pastryphiles lost in a house of dairy, while their vegan companions will enjoy the soy-based peach and purple cotton-candy soyogurts. The Skinny Dip's more than 40 topping selections include everything from fresh berries to freshly minted candies (M&Ms, Sour Patch Kids, gummy worms, Skittles, etc.), and are free to be piled onto the yogurt (or yogurts) of one's choosing according to your cravings and artistic sense of composition. Once completed, the memorable frozen masterpieces are weighed at the counter and priced per weight; everything is $.47 an ounce.
Each of The Skinny Dip's colorful eateries is a great place to bring large groups of friends or small groups of enemies ready to declare a truce over a frozen dairy dessert and a pile of bite-sized candies. Fuel up and feel the frozen protein power charge through your veins.
- You'll feel like a kid in the candy store...because you literally are. Choose your own flavors (they change quite often -- more than once per week) and toppings, then pay by weight. – Grace Bernhardt, Urbanspoon
- It may be small, but the choices are many. My daughter and I go frequently, since we both love the fresh fruit toppings. We have never been disappointed! – VBResident, TripAdvisor
- Very customer friendly, they have a great set up for self service allowing you to get your frozen yogurt the way you want it then pay according to the weight. – RandyB, Kudzu
