A la Carte: Snobar

Sno business


So what if it’s April in Los Angeles? It’s Sno-ing. The Taiwanese-born treat trumps syrupy shaved ice with flash-freeze technology that captures all-natural ingredients at the peak of their freshness. It doesn’t hurt that flavors are sinfully low-cal (roughly 150 calories/16 ounces).

Traditionalists go for classics like chocolate and strawberry; thrill-seekers opt for honeydew, rose, and taro. Toppings range from healthy (blueberries, tangerine slices) to skinny jeans-defying (gummy bears, peanut butter cups). There are also cheesecake bits for those feeling truly decadent.

Oh, sno’ they didn’t.
