If we all screamed at once for ice cream, the resulting sonic boom would destroy the sun, turning the entire solar system into a freezer in which we could store more ice cream. Warm up your shoutin’ muscles with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of frozen treats at Tropical Dreams Hawaiian Creamery.
Tropical Dreams infuses conventional flavors of ice cream, gelato, shaved ice, and sorbet with exotic fruits imported from the Aloha State. Like a young, idealistic politician, the premium-flavor ice cream contains only 10% air, creating a creamier consistency than standard ice cream—which is generally 40%–60% air. Such creamy concoctions include chocolate coconut macadamia nut ($3.85/medium). In the from-scratch gelato, the shop’s ice-cream artisans blend together puréed locally grown fruit as well as fruits flown in from Hawaiian farms for popular flavors that include mango and white-chocolate pineapple ($4.05/medium). For nondairy deliciousness, sink teeth into passion-orange-guava ($3.85/medium) sorbet, which is served in a coconut bowl ($1 extra) that can be bashed open by a ukulele.
