Some of the best things in life are those that take you back to your childhood. When I was a kid, one of my favorite parts of summer sports camps was the snow cone stand. It gave me a well deserved break sweat in the sun all day and pretend to be good at sports. Strawberry, orange, watermelon and fruit punch were my favorite flavors. My sister and I loved those frozen treats so much that I later remember buying a Disney princess snow cone maker. Making snow cones at home was a blast back then, so when I found a more grown-up version on Amazon, I freaked out.

Dash Shaved Ice Maker and Slushie Maker will help you step back in time and remember exactly why you were obsessed with snow cones as a kid. Whip up snow cones, slush, frozen cocktails and more with this handy kitchen appliance. Luckily, it’s also a lot more visually appealing – no Disney princesses or cartoon characters to be found.

All you have to do is toss ice cubes into the top of the device and twist it to shave the ice. After that, the world is your oyster. Dip it in snow cone syrup or drizzle it with alcohol. Or, take inspiration from Hawaii and add a splash of sweetened condensed milk for arguably the best version of shaved ice.

You may think this device is a necessity, but buyers are convinced that it is a “essential for summerand he garnered over 2,300 perfect scores.
