But wouldn't it be great, however, if you didn't have to wait for the fair to be in town or to watch your favorite sports team play just to enjoy a satisfying snow cone? As it turns out, you don't have to wait; snow cones can be made in your very own home using a minimal amount of ingredients. These cups of flavored ice were in high demand even before there was a name for them, and although they have evolved a small amount over time, they are just as big a hit now as they were when they first became popular.

About Snow Cones

Sometimes called snow balls, the first snow cone is believed to have been created in the 1850s when huge blocks of ice were beginning to be sold. Ice wagons would carry blocks of ice from factories to businesses. Children who saw these ice wagons pass by would approach the wagons and ask for ice shavings. Drivers of the ice wagons were always happy to share the ice with the smiling children.

After a while, parents decided that the ice shavings could be something of a dessert for their kids; they began making flavored syrups at home and drizzled these syrups over their kids' shaved ice. One of the first flavors to ever be made was egg custard, a mixture of eggs, vanilla, and sugar. A simple recipe, it was a very popular flavoring. Later, more flavors, such as banana, grape, and cherry, would be created.

Now there are over 100 flavors of syrup for snow cones, making the snow cone a very versatile and sought-after dessert. One of the best things about flavorful snow cones, however, is that they are so simple to make. Although the flavorings can be purchased in stores, parents can know what they are putting into their and their children's bodies by using a few inexpensive ingredients to make snow cones at home.
