Have you ever wanted to grab a handful of snow and taste the fluffiness that fell from the sky? Well… I can’t promise you it’ll taste good, but at least now you can have a flavorful version at Snowdays Shavery! Making its debut last Friday, this dessert spot serves snow cream that’s more amazing than you can imagine. The owners had developed a recipe to have it eaten more like ice cream than the typical shaved ice that contains water. It is still very light by itself, and the toppings bring you to a whole other world!

You can pick your flavor of ice that you prefer (strawberry, NY cheesecake, green tea, roasted black sesame, coconut, or the signature Yeti Tracks, a mixture of Oreo and blueberry). Then add your toppings or pick the combos they already thought of for you. I tried two versions and loved them both.
I was highly fascinated with these “magic spoons” that brought joy out of all the customers (especially my husband!). It changes color as you eat! (Blue: warm, Purple: cold).
Though I didn’t take a picture of the actual place, it is surrounded by beautiful photos of New Yorkers in the snow, in the city. I believe they were by QnsMade.co. In addition, if there was an award for best choking or first aid sign, Jinukchoi’s artwork would win hands down. 🙂
All in all, it was a fun place to be and I’m really glad I got to enjoy it with my husband and friends. Congratulations Snowdays, for a wonderful opening weekend!
