I love snow cones. As a child, I would save up my money so I can buy scramble. That icy mix of shaved ice, milk, peanuts, sago and pink food coloring. Later versions would have chocolate syrup. Allan remembers a different version here in Manila, one sans the peanuts. Whatever version it is we remember, sweet shaved ice will always be a favorite cooler.
The picture up top was taken in SM, and that thing is a snow cone. Grape flavor. It's ginormous! Good enough for two. It's just shaved ice with grape syrup and condensed milk on top. I suppose it's a little bit expensive at P30, but hell, why not? It was muggy out.
