Coco's Malaysian Shaved Ice Nails it All (Except the Ice)

New York Max Falkowitz 4 comments

The texture of Coco's shaved ice is brutally coarse—much more like an American snow cone—but it nails the proper flavor, which is more than you can say for plenty other Malaysian shaved ice in the city. More

Sweets Max Falkowitz 1 comment

If you want to get the proper sno ball experience without compromising your insulin balances for the rest of the day, Beaucoup Juice on Freret Street is a must-visit. The shop has that New Orleans kind of funk: bare concrete floors, good music on the stereo, and psychedelic wall murals that, upon closer inspection, double as menus. More

Great shaved ice can be hard to find beyond the city's Chinatowns or the itinerant Wooly's cart. The Caribbean snoballs from Kafi Dublin's An Icy Introduction are an excellent alternative, with flavors like dark, spicy Peanut Punch and a crisp, refreshing Ginger Beer with a kick. More

Daily Scoop: Snoballs at An Icy Introduction

New York Sam Levison 2 comments

You might not know it, but there's something missing in your life, and it comes in a styrofoam cup with a spoon and straw. Snoballs are a Caribbean frozen dessert that will make you forget all about those sad, corn syrupy snow cones of years past, and Kafi Dublin's Noho pop-up stand, An Icy Introduction, does them very well.

Sugar Rush: Snocones at Handsome Dan's Stand

New York Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

Snocones at Handsome Dan's Stand are $4 apiece, and come in flavors like Strawberry, Chocolate Milk, Passion Fruit and Double Berry. Though the creamy chocolate milk comes in as a close second, the Earl Grey Cream is my favorite, coupling a liberal pour of housemade earl grey tea syrup with condensed milk drizzled over the top.

Austin, TX: Awesome Shaved Ice at Sno Beach Food Truck

Sweets Rob Sobotnik 4 comments

As a child, my indulgent self was confused as to why people would order a Snow Cone from the Mr. Softee truck when you could have sundaes, milkshakes, and bars that replicated cartoon characters with gumballs for eyes. Other than the Snow Cone serving as a wet, hydrating "treat", I never felt it belonged with the other sweet and creamy contenders. But a recent visit to Sno Beach in Austin, Texas, could have easily swayed my childhood self. More

Scooped: Green Coconut and Grapefruit Shaved Ice

Disappointed by the meager snowfall we've seen in New York City this winter, I decided that if I can't enjoy snow on the ground, I might as well enjoy it (or a better-tasting lookalike, at least) on my plate. More

Scooped: Dark Rum and Apple Cider Shaved Ice

Sweets Ethan Frisch 2 comments

In the days after Thanksgiving's excesses, I find myself craving the sweet simplicity of apple cider. Good apple cider is tart and spicy, with a texture reminiscent not just of the apple but also of the branch it grew on, the tree, the soil, a chilly breeze. Frozen into a solid block and then scraped with a spoon, it becomes snowy and light, the flavor of the fall with the texture of winter. More

Dark Rum and Apple Cider Shaved Ice

Serious Eats Ethan Frisch Post a comment

Frozen into a solid block and then scraped with a spoon, it becomes snowy and light, the flavor of the fall with the texture of winter. Spiked with smooth, oaky dark rum and freshly grated ginger and topped with honey, the composed dessert is a study in autumnal contrast: sweet and tart, crunchy and smooth, icy and warming. More

Snopo: Shaved Ice at Flushing's New World Mall

New York Sara Markel-Gonzalez 12 comments

The best part about summer is the search for new icy treats to try, and a good reason to venture out into this kind of heat. Last summer we went for raspados, paletas, and nieves; this year, a completely different (and slightly crazy) icy option has appeared in Flushing's New World Mall. Welcome Snopo to the Queens ice scene—shaved ice on another level. More

Los Angeles: 10 Icy Sweet Treats We Love

Sweets Katie Robbins 2 comments

As with dumplings or meat-on-a-stick, every culinary tradition seems to have its own version of a slushy, ice-based sweet treat, from the audacious, over-the-top Korean patbingsu to the comparatively austere Italian ice. Though the interpretations of these shivery, sugary confections show amazing range, at their core, they share an ability to elevate simple frozen water into refreshing, flavorful summer treasures. Thanks to its tremendous diversity and its extended stretches of warm weather, Los Angeles offers what may be an unmatched opportunity to sample the world of these frosty treats. More

Hansen's Sno-Bliz in New Orleans

Sweets Chichi Wang 5 comments

Shaved ice in Louisiana is a simple affair of ice and flavored syrup, yet not just any shaved ice joint can produce a cone as fine as Hansen's on Tchoupitoulas Street in New Orleans. Hansen's stainless steel ice-shaving machine is the key to its success. This beast yields shavings of ice as light as snowflakes, finer than any I have tasted before. More

Scooped: Gin, Tonic, and Cucumber Shaved Ice

Serious Eats Ethan Frisch 5 comments

After a stressful week, you can't really beat a good old gin and tonic for a little refreshment and relaxation. How, I wondered, could we make a gin and tonic even more refreshing? The answer, of course: freeze it, scrape it, and eat it like a snow cone. More
