For several months now we've had our eye on the Little Snowie. Although it's intended for commercial use, we want it bad enough that we've even considered registering for a booth at our local fair, just so we can justify owning one. Although, deep down, we don't want to share the treats we'd make with the masses.... all we really want is to make our own crazy snow cone concoctions for days on end in our own kitchen at home. We're not 100% sure man can live from ice and sugar water alone, but we'd be willing to give it a try.
The Little Snowie retails for $299 and although we should be happy with the roadside stands and forgo the heavy price tag, it just wouldn't be the same.
There are several great places to pick up a snow cone around town, but none are finer than those using this Little Snowie. We've been dreaming about having an excuse to test out new flavors
and have parties for friends and family with grown-up snow cones
. If we made them at home we could control the syrup to make it not only tastier, but thicker to coat the ice better.
Is it wrong to covet an appliance? Were we this infatuated with the KitchenAid Stand Mixer before we owned one? Or a Cuisinart Food Processor? Do you have an appliance that you dream about owning?
Do you have a new appliance purchase on your radar? Let us know in the comments below!
