Pickles on Pizza 's own Angela has been posting off and on lately about the sno-cone flavors she and her husband, Aubrey, have been trying this summer. Enough so that I've been wanting to try one.
Then my nephew's wife posted on her blog about her recent sno-cone experience. I took it as a sign that it was time for me to find a sno-cone place.
So last Thursday when AD and I were making an early afternoon run to Wally World we went by this sno-cone place and I asked if he'd like to stop for one on the way home.
Well, I didn't have to ask him twice.
After reading the long list of choices - and there were so many I couldn't get a photo of the whole list in one picture - AD chose a Marguarita. (Due to the number of choices we decided against going alphabetically like Angela and Aubrey do.) AD thought his was very good - a combination of strawberry, lemon and lime flavors.
He gave me a taste and I thought it was ok BUT - - -
I had what is known as a Sugar Daddy and it was WON - DER - FUL!!!!!! And I didn't pass up the chance of having cream added to it. SO. SO. SO. YUMMY!!!!!! It's a blend of wedding cake flavor (not sure what that is but it's really, really good!) and strawberry. Add the cream to it and OH. MY. GOODNESS. GRACIOUS. ME!!!!
I guess by now you get the idea that I really liked my sno-cone. If I somehow didn't manage to get my point across - well, l don't know what else I can add to let you know how simply scrumptious it was.
But liking something that much comes with a problem. I'm one of those people who try a dish at a restaurant and if I really like it, I hardly ever vary in my order on following visits.
And there are so many flavors that sound super good.
So, G1, his girlfriend and G2 came by the house that evening and I was telling them about the sno-cones. They thought we needed to make a visit to the sno-cone place and who was I to argue with them? Besides, I'd get to try their choices for a comparison taste-testing.
G1 chose watermelon. Not surprising. He loves watermelon slushes. Me? I'm not a fan of watermelon flavor - only slices of the real deal fruit but that's neither here nor there.
I tried a small taste of his and I was very surprised that it was pretty good. Not as good as the Sugar Daddy, but better than the Marguarita in my opinion.
His girlfriend and G2 chose something called Punisher - a blend of strawberry, cherry and pink lemonade. I'd rank it with the Marguarita.
I actually chose a flavor other than the Sugar Daddy. The choice the second time around in the same day was a Pink Flamingo. It's a combination of pink lemonade and strawberry. I asked for cream but they'd just run out. The guy was really nice and said he'd put the last dribblings of cream that was in the bottle on mine but it wouldn't be very much and he wouldn't charge me for it.
So the verdict. While it was pretty good I'm sure the Pink Flamingo would have been better with the cream. So it comes in at #2 on my favs list.
Next time I think I'll try a Pink Elephant - a blend of wedding cake, bubble gum and strawberry flavors.
Oh, and there's one called Twilight. Maybe I'll have to go by and get one of those when Eclipse is released later this month.
I'll let you know how they rank.
