Beat the Heat with a Snow Cone

Beat the Heat with a Snow Cone

Nostalgia Electrics Old Fashioned Snow Cone Cart

The Summer heat down here on the coast of Texas is brutal. I think it’s more the humidity than the heat though. It’s like living in a sauna. Our seasons here are a little different, and the heat and humidity drag on for what feels like forever. So what do we do for relief? We have the Gulf of Mexico, and endless beaches! Those are two hours away from my family though, and we can’t just take off and go whenever we want. Our solution to the problem is the Nostalgia Old Fashioned Snow Cone Cart!

Nostalgia Old Fashioned Snow Cone Cart

The Snow Cone Cart comes only partially assembled, however, it was not very difficult to put together. I can prove this by the fact that I put it together all by myself, without any help from my husband! It took me about 30 minutes to get it assembled, up and running. We’ve made snow cones every day since it landed on my front deck.

MMM! Snow Cones from the Nostalgia Snow Cone Maker

The ice is actually shaved to an almost snow like consistency; finer than any other snow cone machines our family has owned in the past. It does not come with syrups to put on your snow cones, but it does include recipes for syrups in the instruction booklet that comes with it. You can also purchase syrups at local stores like Walmart, or grocery stores.

MM! Nothing Better than Snow Cones on a Hot Summer Day!

What is your favorite flavor for snow cones?




  1. Oh I love the many items that Nostalgia offers. I have the red microwave, the slushy maker & I’m debating next for the popcorn maker or the cotton candy maker. The retro classic look of each one is so cool! My grandson keeps me busy with snow cones for the Summer, so this one I may have to buy too.

  2. My grandson love blue raspberry flavor but mine is orange all the way! 🙂 yum
