When I walked in Snocream, I could immediately tell it was an open and fun environment, with kids playing board games they borrowed from the dessert place. It had white and grey walls with white tables and metallic chairs. I could tell its cleanliness by the lack of trash on the floor or sticky food on the counters. It looked urban and modernized, but the cartoon on the wall kept it looking family-friendly.

I had to take a step back and look at the extensive, yet simple menu. The restaurant is known for their shaved snow, which is like shaved ice but blended more. It’s almost a variation of ice cream; it tastes similar, but is much lighter. They had many options, you could pick a flavor of snow and add your own toppings, or you could pick one of their unique combinations, like Twix Candy Bar or Hawaiian Candy. They also had regular ice cream or macaroon cookie sandwiches with a variety of flavors.

Walking up to the counter, I was greeted by a friendly employee with a smile on her face. I decided to go with one of their set combinations, “S’moreo”: a blend of s’mores and oreo cookies and cream.

The pricing is fairly decent, the set combinations are $6-7, and the small just shaved snow is $3 and the large is $5. The small comes with one topping, and the large comes with two, so you get your money’s worth. They also have Two Dollar Tuesdays.

The waitress called out my order, a fashion similar to Starbucks, and I was pleasantly surprised. I could see the graham crackers, Oreo crumbs, marshmallows, and chocolate drizzle coming out of the bowl. When I took a bite, I was hit with the perfect blend of s’mores and oreo. It had cookies and cream flavored snow, which did not end up being too much sweetness. The only downside to purchasing one of their combinations is that they only come in a large, so I personally could not finish it.  

Its close and convenient location makes it easy to travel to. It is at 6700 Lonetree Blvd Suite 700, right by the Blue Oaks Movie Theater and Mel’s. It is open from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays, 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Fridays, noon to 10 p.m. on Saturdays and  noon to 9 p.m. on Sundays.

Going to get dessert at Snocream ended up being a great choice, and I will definitely go again.
