Summer time is all about having fun and beating the heat with some cool beach, pool, or sprinkler, and some yummy cool treats. My favorite growing up was snow cones and couldn’t wait for the ice cream truck to pass by the park so I can enjoy! Those were the days of not realizing how much sugar, corn syrup, artificial flavors and colors were in my foods. Come to think of it, no one really thought twice about those things.
Now that I have kids of my own and try to live a chemical free lifestyle, I tend to stay away from mass produced sweets that contain all those nasty additives. I love that I can make my own snow cones for the kids with the Nostalgia Electrics Retro Snow Cone Maker. You simply add ice, plug in the machine, and turn the lid into the closed position, and the snow cone maker starts automatically. My kids love some fresh lemon juice on top of their ice, but I’ve also invested in some all natural, dye free snow cone syrups. The kids have had these at every pool party and get together so far this summer, and it’s always a hit! You can also find snow cone syrups at amazon which received some great reviews, and while you are there be sure to pick up some snow cone cups as well. I’ve used various fruit juices to make snow cones, but I find the syrups have a better consistency and stick to the ice better. The Nostalgia Electrics comes with one plastic reusable snow cone cup, but when we use the machine at home we use regular plastic or disposable cups to enjoy snow cones.
