The Frozen Code Returns for 2012

The Frozen Code is making chilly calculations all winter at The Gelato Fiasco Flagship Store. (Remember last year? This is our absurd way of poking fun at the absurd fact that we sell frozen treats in Maine 12 hours a day, all winter long.)

On each day that the temperature falls below freezing, we automatically use The Frozen Code to calculate a discount on your order of gelato dishes. While the traditional Frozen Code is rumored to hold a complex series of calculations that the very first gelateri used to create perfect gelato, our senior assistant visiting archaeologist has derived fragments of the legendary code into a single calculation that can be used only in winter: Price = Price – [Price * ((32 – current temperature) / 100)]. Or, in layman’s terms: You save one percent for each degree below freezing.

We’ll be posting forecasts all winter long. Bundle up, and we’ll see you soon!

TIP: Our store is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day. Peak discounts generally come during visits close to opening or closing time.

UPDATE: WCSH 6 News Center 6 came and reported on the Frozen Code one cold night. Watch the story:
