Have you heard the scoop from 44 Below? They’re now offering snow cones! You heard that right: snow cones.

This variation of shaved ice, served with flavored sugar syrup, is sure to be a hit this summer, especially with the hot temperatures and humid days lately. But the fun doesn’t end, as this Altoona-based biz plans to sell snow cones year-round.

“We decided to start doing (snow cones) to offer something different in the park for families!” said manager Jake Jensen, referring to nearby River Prairie Park. Enjoy fan-favorite flavors such as blue raspberry, grape, and lemon lime – with plans for new flavors down the line.

As the Abominable Snowman would say in Disney’s 2001 film Monsters Inc.: “Snow cone?”

But, I mean, do these look abominable to you?
