Class 302 Mango Shaved Snow

Too bad every random meal cannot be dessert. Good thing today is dessert Sunday. Wow, this place was quite an adventure to get to. The parking lot to this place was a madhouse. It was a cold and slightly rainy day and yet I was still in the mood for a cold treat. We have for today Mango Shaved Snow. The typical shaved ice consists of ice that is shaved down with some food flavoring poured over the top of it to give it flavor. This is nothing like that. This is shaved snow. The shaved snow looks like grated cheese but feels like soft powder snow. It is pleasantly mushy and quickly melts in your mouth. It is unique in its own right because I believe that before the snow is shaved, it is most likely a frozen ice cream that is entirely flavored. When they shave it down, each and every bite is completely packed with flavor. It has the perfect blend of sweetness that refreshes your palate without overpowering you with sugary hangover.

We have for today, the Mango Shaved Snow. The Mango Shaved Snow is delicately shaved and then topped with fresh mangos and drizzled with sweet condensed milk. The dessert is complete when a few soft and gooey rice cakes are placed at the base of the shaved snow mountain. The serving size is generous enough for 2 but you will have to beat me in a duel, before I share this wonderful treat.
Found at Class 302 in Rowland Heights, CA.
