A month or two ago, we took Nicholas to a carnival where he had a snow-cone for the very first time … and fell in love with them. I’ve been meaning to pick up a snow-cone machine ever since then, and finally remembered over the weekend. With the cost under $25, I figured it works out to the cost of 4-5 snow-cones, so it would pay for itself very quickly; and it did, in the very first night.
The syrup and cups are hard to come by (anyone have a good online source?), but I managed to find a few bottles. We’ve experimented with cherry and blue raspberry so far – grape is up next. Hey, this site IS about the “fun” aspects of food too, and what better way to celebrate all things Summer than with homemade snow-cones? And just think of all the Cool Mom points I scored.
A year ago today … Summer BBQ.
