Fun Food Snackery

cmeckhardt, bedfull_o_books and I were at Christina's Ice Cream when cmeckhardt realized we should have gone to Fun Food Snackery to try their Summer Snow Shaved Ice (tm) instead. I suggested we go there anyway, after we'd finished our ice cream. Why not? So we did.

Fun Food Snackery is a frozen dessert place. Its signature Summer Snow Shaved Ice (tm) is a pile of shaved ice, dotted with your choice of fruits, topped with a scoop of sorbet or ice cream from Christina's (which is why cmeckhardt thought of it when we were at Christina's). I was pleasantly surprised that the shaved ice was more flavorful than the sorbet: light, sweet, and milky. She told me they mixed the shaved ice with a sauce based on condensed milk. You can order the Shaved Ice with one, two, or three fruit toppings. We chose strawberry, blueberry, and Asian pear. The server embedded them in three clusters on the edges of the shaved ice. For our scoop, we chose blackcurrant sorbet. With three toppings, it came to $5.25.

Fun Food Snackery also does smoothies, fruit shakes, hawaiian ice, crepes, and of course Christina's ice cream. But the Shaved Ice really is the thing to try here.

I'm considering getting a Zipcar membership. Anyone like them? Dislike them? Have any pointers or thoughts?

(Also, I see some interesting promotional codes floating around the intarweb: KQED (as in the San Francisco PBS station) gets you $50 credit, and VANCOUVERWEB gets you $75 credit. I don't know that either of them will work in Boston, as I haven't signed up yet. It's at least vaguely plausible that I might be a KQED member, while I'm not sure it's so plausible for me to use the Vancouver discount here. But hey, if someone's used it, I want to hear whether it worked. :)

dirque forwarded me a promo code, but for Flexcar, which sadly doesn't operate in Boston.)
