What desert, like popcorn, is found to be some-what healthy and enjoyed by many? Snow cones, of course! Snow cones are a variation of shaved ice, topped with a flavored sugar syrup, and often served in paper cones or foam cups. Did you know that snow cone’s popularity (like popcorn) also struck in theaters? By the 1870s, snow cones would be sold in theaters during hot summer months to keep patrons cool throughout their showing. It was around then that snow cone supplies, such as the electric ice shaver had been invented.
With new snow cone machines and snow cone supplies, the inexpensive icy treat started to become quite popular in the United States. During the great depression, people in need of a job would sell snow cones, as they required little overhead. During World War II, snow cones made their way to our soldiers who were in need of an icy treat. This was said to be the time that snow cones gained their mass popularity. Now, snow cones and their supplies are made readily available for anyone looking to create this tasty treat.
