What is a Snow Cone?
Born in the USA the traditional Snow Cone is a simple Iced treat made from snow/ice with flavoured syrup poured over the top, but what makes our Snow Cones the best Its simple really… We use the top selling commercial Ice shavers on the market to create fluffiest softest Shave Ice for our Snow Cones, along with authentic Shave Ice syrups which are absorbed into the Ice – this creates a delightful and tantalising taste sensation for the mouth.
So basically you won’t find any cheaper Ice crushers or repackaged slush machine here.
The History of Snow Cones
Samuel Bert of Dallas sold snow cones at the State Fair of Texas in 1919, and he invented a snow cone-making machine in 1920. Bert was a fixture at the State Fair, selling his snow cones there (and selling his machines world-wide) until his death in 1984.
In 1934, inventor Ernest Hansen patented the first known “ice block shaver” in New Orleans, Louisiana. He was inspired to create a more refined and hygienic version of the popular Italian ice sold from push-carts in the city. His wife Mary created many flavors of fresh syrups to flavor his finely shaved artificial “snow”. “Sno balls” have been popular in New Orleans ever since. In 2007 The Shave Ice Co, launched and Marketed Europes First Snow Cone brand with Snowy the Bear as their Mascot.
