Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. Since the Florida Snow Factory opened three months ago in the Harbor Shops plaza in Fort Lauderdale, we South Floridians can get snow anytime we want -- even in the middle of summer. And it won't mess up the roads or muck up our yards with ugly brown and yellow piles of packed slush for weeks on end.
Instead, we get our snow fresh-shaved, packed into a plastic cone and doused in fun flavored syrups. In addition to over a dozen ice cream flavors and a constantly rotating selection of D'Lites soft serve and frozen yogurt, this boutique-style ice cream parlor offers Hawaiian-style fresh-shaved ices made using an old-fashioned machine that blasts out a light, fluffy snow-like ice which is guaranteed to be better than those granular balls of machine-manufactured ice we're all used to seeing.
"It's really a unique frozen treat," marketing manager Matthew Kushner told Clean Plate Charlie. "You can watch staff perform the century-old art of shaving blocks of ice, which comes out like fresh-packed snow rather than those ice crystals you're probably used to seeing."
