An ice-cream parlor is like a choose-your-own-adventure novel, only instead of the inevitable nuclear whitewater dinosaur catastrophe, you get delicious ice cream topped according to your whim. Today’s Groupon takes you on journey into the heart of flavor. For $5, you get $10 worth of custom-crafted and generously topped Cold Stone Creamery ice cream. This deal is good at the Brentwood and Franklin locations.
Cold Stone’s ice cream inhabits a quantum flux between soft-serve and traditional ice cream, with a rich, creamy texture that whispers tales of its super-premium quality as it glides over taste buds. The ice cream generously welcomes dozens of toppings, as traditional as crumbled cookies and chopped nuts or as quirky as granola and black licorice. Choose your favorite ice cream from among dozens of silky flavors, such as Irish cream and butter pecan. Then make certain no one will try and steal a taste by topping it protectively with brownies, gumballs, and peach pie filling. Whatever Frankencream you create, it’ll be scooped cold off the frozen granite stone into a freshly made waffle cone or bowl. Cold Stone’s ice cream and toppings vary between seasons and location, and they also offer non-dairy sorbet and an array of lighter toppings such as fruit and honey. Ice-cream creations run between $4 and $6, depending on size.
Cold Stone guarantees there are more than 11 million combinations of their ice cream, and they’ve employed one lucky man for the past 20 years to confirm that count lick by lick. If you’re suffering from premature brain freeze and can’t invent your own creamy concoction, try a Cold Stone Signature Creation such as the almond-studded and caramel-slathered Coffee Lovers Only, or the Peanut Butter Cup Perfection with Reese’s peanut butter cups and fudge.
