I remember getting them at the circus (boy does that date me) and SNO Ball stands by the roadside on my way to Granny’s house in rural North Carolina. The SNO CONE (how it was spelled) stands might be next to a fruit stand which were plentiful on a country highway.

They’ve come a long way baby since 1916 and this funny little washed out Drive -In intermission clip. (for your entertainment!).  And they’ve always been popular with everyone.

Shaved ice is the best!  Snowballs in the past could be clunky, hard to eat with big pieces of ice.  This unit creates a cool refreshing treat on a hot summer’s day. A snow cone recipe with fluffy, snowy shaved ice with a cornucopia of flavored syrups to goMakes fruity cones like old timey snow cone places on top. What could be better? I really liked a rainbow of syrups and flavors on mine.  It was always so colorful and tasty.

So, the answer is absolutely yes. In this review, we discover you can make these professional icy treats at home.  It is convenient, easy to clean up and makes them just like your favorite snow cone place or off the local ice cream truck. Delicious!

Nostalgia RSM602 retro style and color – who cares?

Nostalgia is a perfect name for this brand of retro electrics. When you look at this ice cone machine it brings back memories, of movie theatres, Drive – Ins, State Fairs, etc.  With its metal stripes, ruby red color and deco rounded corners it looks like it jumped right out of the 1950’s, or earlier.  If you’re too young to have an emotional attachment to such objects, you’ll be seeing something very cool for the first time!

Of course you agree this is a handsome appliance, but when it comes to features this unit really has it covered. Very high ranking with Amazon customers and with us. This is a number one seller from a well respected company Nostalgia.   Check this video – here it is in action.
