Sugar And Soft Shaved Ice Fuse In Shivery, Sweet Awesomeness
Do you know anyone who doesn’t like shaved ice?
It just seems so indulgent. One, it’s sweet. Two, it’s so cold. Three, it’s so soft. Four, it just seems a little naughty. (After all, didn’t your mother tell you not to eat snow? More than once?)
Well, hold on, because we’re about to take naughty to a whole new level.
It is a grave error to assume that shaved ice consumption requires hot weather.
Beach Snoballs in St Pete Beach is the purveyor of these delightful icy desserts they call Snoballs.
Ever run out of syrup with a sno-cone? It’s just so sad! Hopeless even. That doesn’t happen with Snoballs. With finer ice than that found in Sno-cones, there’s no fighting between the syrup and the ice. Ice and syrup are one.
You adults know what I’m talking about. Add a little warmth to counteract all that coldness.
You can find Pina Colada, Margarita. Bahama Mama (my favorite) and more. Or just add a shot to any flavor. Or two. Or three to any Snoball. Terry likes to go big on the Bahama Mana.
Have Fun Choosing
Add Some More Sugar!
Flavored syrups made with real sugar not enough carbs for you? It’s OK, we get it.
Then how about you add ice cream. Yes, to your shaved ice.
Still not hitting the sugar receptors on all cylinders? You can add that food of the gods, Sweetened Condensed Milk. Or Caramel Sauce, Chocolate Sauce or Whipped Cream.
Ready for adventure? No training wheels for you. You can build it yourself. You pick a size, decide whether or not you want to add ice cream, choose up to three flavors and then select your toppings.
Do you find 60 flavor choices and over 25,000 combinations a bit, err, overwhelming after a simple day at the beach? Not to worry.
You can let someone else do the heavy-lifting and try one of the Signature or Specialty snoballs. These include such creations as Salted Caramel Deluxe, German Chocolate and a Tangerine Dream.
The menu includes little icons to let you know which combos are their best sellers.
Pure and simple Bahama Mama! Watch the video and keep an eye on the spoon in the video below
