Is everybody enjoying the summer so far? This warm weather puts me in the mood for a nice sno-cone. And if I’m going to have a sno-cone, I may as well do it in style, and have a Snoopy Sno-Cone!! I do remember the Snoopy Sno-Cones, but I don’t think I ever had one. I must have had friends that had one.
You would mix flavored powder into water to create a little fruit punch. Then you would lift Snoopy up off of the house/sno-cone machine, which would reveal an ice cube size chute. You would drop an ice cube down the chute, and push Snoopy back on the chute while turning a handle wich would crush the ice.
Then you put the shaved ice into a tiny paper cup – and I stress the word Paper. Then you would pour the fruit punch mixture on the ice to make your flavored sno-cone. Then you would need to hurry up and slurp it down before the ice melted and started dripping through the paper cup.
Ah, screw it! I’m from Rhode Island – home of Del’s Lemonade, the world’s greatest frozen lemonade. I’ll save myself some time, aggravation, and cleanup, and have myself a Del’s. Now the Snoopy Sno-Cone machine will collect dust.
Did any of you ever have a Snoopy Sno-Cone machine? Did you like it?
