Aw, yeah. YHO’s favorite super snooper Madame P.I. is back, and continuing her search for the area’s best snow cone treat. Here’s her latest report:
Assignment: City’s Best Snowcone
Stop No. 4: African Ice
Location: 3500 E. 7800 South (Smith’s parking lot)
Madame P.I., the delinquent sleuth, reporting for duty once again. It’s been nearly a year since I’ve been scouting about, and boy did I miss y’all. I missed the shave ice too. So I figured, what better place to start than where we left off?
I think I’ve found a place that makes me feel good about my shave ice addiction. It’s called African Ice. When one consumes such copious amounts of flavored ice, I figure it might as well be for good reason. That’s why this place is the cure for what ails me. I get adequately-sugared, finely-shave ice (and the cream is free!) and African Ice gets funds to help finance lines of micro credit for African villagers.
Not only does African Ice have a shack-load of flavors, they’ve also got sugar-free syrups flavored with agave nectar. I’m not one to take a liking to anything but the pure stuff, but whoo-wee, those sugar-free syrups are tasty. If you have a hard time choosing, they have plenty of flavor-combo and local favorite suggestions.
And did I mention that you can pay 50 cents extra for a topping like caramel, chocolate, or best, ice cream? Well, there you have it. Not only is African Ice making the world a better place one shave ice at a time, they’ve made my world a better place too.
With so many locations, there’s no excuse not to check this place out: 7800 S. 700 East; 9400 S. 200 East; 4500 S. Highland Drive; 2100 S. 2100 East and 3800 E. 7800 South.
