Please Enjoy Responsibly

(sorry suzi, i had to)
In case you haven't noticed, it is finally summer in Utah.  I know this because all I want to eat is frozen yogurt and snow cones.  All the time.  Every day. 

(becky, myself, and traci [aka t-mac] at snoasis)
But tell me, have you ever been to Snoasis?  Snoasis has the very best of all snow cones ever made.  I promise.  In summers past, Traci and I would drive 30 minutes to Snoasis and sometimes wait in line another 30 just to enjoy the icy deliciousness.  With cream.  It was always worth it. 

When I met Kyle and he told me he also loved Snoasis I knew right away that I loved him and that together we would love snow cones for the rest of our lives.  True story.
So by now I pretty much consider myself a snow cone expert.

Kyle and I recently had the pleasure of enjoying beautiful but mediocre snow cones in Manti, Utah.  They were sweet, to be sure, but lacking so much that Snoasis has to offer.  We concluded that there are three key ingredients to the perfect snow cone:

1.  Good ice texture. 
I don't want to have to chew it, it should melt gently in my mouth.

2.  Syrup layered between gobs of ice. 
The layering here is key because really, how many times have you eaten the top off a snow cone only to find there is virtually no syrup remaining in the bottom half?  Very disappointing.

3.  Cream. 
Snoasis does it best and layers cream with syrups.  It is the shizzle.

You are the devil. That is all. Okay you're not! During nap time I fill a cup to the rim with sonic ice, then fill it with water, and munch my way through it. DELISH.
