"Frozen cotton candy" is how some customers have described The Snowflake Factory's frosty, airy specialty: shaved snow. However you choose to describe it or set it to iambic pentameter, there's no denying the growing popularity of this unique dessert, which is literally shaved from a block of ice and flavored with real fruit and dairy-free soy. The best part? It's lighter than ice cream in both texture and calorie count, meaning you can try all of the 21 flavors and 60 toppings in a single visit without experiencing an ounce of guilt.
But The Snowflake Factory doesn't limit itself to shaved snow. The shop brews its signature bubble teas with a process that took two years to develop?and one sip of the Lychee Lush or evocatively named Geisha's Kiss (strawberry lemonade with a zest of lime and strawberry jelly) proves it was worth all the R&D. Balance out the sweet stuff with finger foods that include cajun french fries and popcorn chicken.
