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 frozen custard and desserts at Wolfies Gourmet Frozen Custard in Winston-Salem.
Every day, custardologists at Wolfies hand-mix batches of creamy frozen treats, displaying their colorful creations for customers to stack into cones or sprinkle with toppings, earning the sweetery a feature in The New York Times. Freshly churned custard can boast up to 50 percent less fat than luxury ice creams, and less air than a flat tire on Mars, helping to create Wolfies' signature ultracreamy scoop. Great filler for cones ($4.25/two scoops), pints ($5.95), and milk shakes ($4.60), Wolfies' more than 50 regularly appearing flavors include hazelnut, blueberry, and mango. The menu tempts sweet teeth by arranging the embellished custards in three-scoop banana splits ($5.95) and coffee-blended Wolfcaffés ($4.60). The Screamwich ($4.25) realizes the dream sandwich of childhood with its filling of rich custard enclosed in chocolate-chip cookies with crusts cut off for optimum enjoyment.
