shave snow that is. yum. powder is a taiwanese inspired shave snow shop. so we make something called shave snow which is a cross between ice cream and shave ice. mimi hanley is co-founder of powder - here at spark social sf - catering the the culinary curious in the city's mission bay neighborhood. it's our first time but it looks interesting. they said it's like a cross between ice cream and shaved ice so yeah we're super excited about it. we're like it's our summer and it's windy and 60 degrees but we found that people love their frozen desserts and so shave snow is something that people are really excited about seeing here in the bay area. (nats) "and will that be all?" kind of has a california twist on it so we have organic straus dairy creamery. we're using local ingredients where we can to provide a global flavor for our shave snow so it's not just authentically taiwanese flavors. it's a variety of things so we have a horchata flavor we've got a matcha flavor we've got a mango flavor. we're coming up with some really fun summer flavors as well. i mean everyone loves ice cream. and this is just a new way of having ice
5:57 pm
cream - it's shaved from a block it's different, it's lighter it makes you feel like you're not eating so terribly that's how i feel about it. much lower calorie dessert option so like a regular size serving is like less than 200 calories before you put all those extra goodies on it! but just the snow itself is a nicer alternative healthier alternative to traditional ice cream. ten out of ten. that good. a new cool way to stay chill. happy summer.
