Ah, the original. To me at least – this was my first brush with at home sno-cones. My best friend’s sister had one and we constantly stole it to make sno-cones.
It was fun but it was an absolute mess. Time after time I thought if I added more ice or cranked it faster – I would get fresh-powder-type-snow. No joy. Just a constant mess.
So seeing the box that it’s “new improved” I can only hope they got a better shaver mechanism on it.
Performance aside, it’s still the absolute best ice breaker (no pun intended) to have sitting on my bar. Everyone wants to see it, or play with it, or shave ice into their cocktails from it.
