It has been such a crazy winter week, between warm and freezing, school and no school that we decided to do something a bit different!
To satisfy our sweet tooth, and I hope yours, we followed a friend’s recommendation about a delicious frozen treat: Snowblock Shavery in Rice village. We tried it twice actually!
There are 3 or 4 ice creations to try: snow ice, ribbon ice, fruit crush ice and waffle/block toast. We didn’t try the block toast but we spied on a nice lady’s order and it looked wonderful too. I have to say that it is a bit intimidating as you stare at all the options but they have some already planned ideas that can help for the first visit.
My husband had the salted caramel with M&Ms and I chose their fruit crush with ice, fresh fruits and ice cream. They have condensed milk that ties everything together and it was a hit to. And my son’s friend had the snow ice, you can choose 3 different flavors to get really nice colors. The ice has the same number of calories as frozen yogurt, just to make me feel better!
You can see them making the ice creations and it is very interesting how they shave the ice and even weigh your plate. All their fruits and ingredients were fresh and delicious. So we all highly recommend this new place that reminds us that, yes, in a few months it will be unbearably hot again and we will love eating ice on our plates not driving on it!
On a personal note, I was very lucky today as my son helped me write the review for the first time and typed some sentences on his own!
See you next week for our next culinary adventure!
