What Is It? The Answer

Nance and Steve both win! Steve, you were close enough with your guess that it shaved ice from the big blocks, and Nance finished it by guessing it was a snow cone maker, early vintage style.


I was just astounded that they would make snow cones back in the days of the big ice blocks but this little gadget would shave and shape it perfectly. Just add sugar syrup, and there you have it.

Nance and Steve, please email me your address and I'll mail you CDs to you. My email is susannaholstein@yahoo.com.

Thanks, everyone, for playing along. I'll have another one for you to guess tomorrow.

I was astounded to, Sue. I had NO idea that snow cones were originally shaved by hand. What a job! I bet a freshly shaved snow coned was greatly anticipated and appreciated!

In Hawaii, they still make "shave ice" by hand . . .

My children and Grandchildren love home made ice cream . . . I'm pretty sure they would embrace home shaved "shave ice" too. I'm going to find me one of those things! Sue, I have your CDS, my prizes! I am enjoying and learning and I'll be practicing my story telling. Thanks so much! Your #1 Ioway Fan
