Snow Cones are easy to make refreshing summer treats for people that like to taste something sweet but not too sweet. They can come with a variety of different flavors which depends on what type of snow cone syrup you use. Snow Cones can also come in a mixture of colors, and you can combine different colors on one snow cone to have more taste.
Differences between Snow Cones and Snow Shaved Ice
Before purchasing one needs to differentiate between snow cones and shaved ice because they have similar features and can often be confused. The primary difference is that shave ice (can also be called Hawaiian ice/ snow balls) are made by a machine that shaves the ice into snowflakes like qualities and the syrup is able to stick to each snowflake. The ice is very fine that it can easily melt and therefore you will need spoons to eat it.
A Snow Cone is made by a different kind of machine where it grinds the ice into a more course tiny pieces of ice. The result looks more like a snowball that you can eat without the need of a spoon. The syrup can go to the bottom of the cone that the snowball is on.
