Cooling Cones in the Woodlands
It’s summer and as temperatures reach their peak we all crave the wonderful cold sweets that provide respite from the intense, humid Texan heat. One more reason to visit the Woodlands’ weekly Saturday farmers market is to get a cooling snow cone flavored with organic, fresh fruit.
Snow Cone Angels greets you at the entrance of The Woodlands Farmers Market - Grogan's Mills—a gorgeous red vintage food truck. Inside, it is equipped with an assortment of heavenly delicious syrups, proudly stored in long glass bottles. Homemade with real fruit, pure cane sugar and infused with herbs, roots and petals, these syrups have no artificial ingredients or added color.
Coconut, pineapple and strawberry flavors are among the most popular, but adventurous tasters will find unique combinations such as blackberry-lavender, mint-lime-honeydew and their Taste of Texas pineapple-jalapeño.
“Everyone likes snow cones. Snow cones tend to make people happy,” Monica tells me as she reaches down to hand me her apple-ginger Just Juice. Snow Cone Angels’ Just Juice line of flavors are simply sweetened with seasonal fruit at their peak of ripeness and have no other sugar added. That makes it basically shaved ice with fruit and spice.
> Snow Cone Angels is at The Woodlands Farmers Market - Grogan’s Mill every Saturday 8am–noon; 936-548-7586.
