Sno -the ice was very fine and snow like, hence the name!
Snow cones are one of my favorite treats, and I will admit sometimes I crave them in the winter! I have a favorite snow cone stand, Kawaii Ice in Round Rock, Texas, and Sno in the North Dallas neighborhood is now a serious contender for one of the best I have ever had.
Sno isn’t in a typical snow cone stand location. It isn’t in a hip trendy food trailer lot, it isn’t across the street from a park, but rather it is in a shopping strip located about 9 miles north of Downtown Dallas. It was worth the drive, trust me!
Walking in, the interior was unassuming. A few round tables and chairs, some fading decals on the wall, and a big counter with a bunch of snow cone syrups and a very outgoing girl manning the snow machine.
With an array of flavors to choose from, I went with my tried and true favorite combination- Tigers Blood and Bahama Mama. Tigers blood is a mixture of Watermelon, Strawberry and a hint of coconut. Depending which snow cone stand you go to, the hint of Coconut can be stronger or weaker. The Bahama Mama is a sour piña colada taste and paired with the Tigers Blood it’s a match made in heaven.
The prices were also really reasonable! I always find a hard time to justify the $3+ price some snow cone trailers and even chain’s like Bahama Bucks charge for smalls. It’s syrup and ice!
I was in luck! The flavors were very close to how Kawaii Ice does them so they had that going for them, and the ice was very fine and snow like- hence the name! But not all snow cones are made equal so I always like to trial and error with the same flavor combination so I can keep track of how close or far it is from my gold standard, and I would say this one was a close second (so far!) to my favorite. When in Dallas, this is one of the best! Pair it with a drive through White Rock Lake where you can sit on a pier overlooking the water, eat your snow cone and stair at the skyline and the seagulls fighting over fish.
