Fun & Easy Snow Cone Syrup

Fun & Easy Snow Cone Syrup

Many years ago, Kaylee had an end-of-the-school-year-summer’s-coming party.  Among other things, we served snow cones.  I bought a snow cone maker at a kitchen store for less than $20, and bought a pack of four different flavored snow cone syrups.  Three years ago, we moved from Florida to Kentucky, but the box that contained the snow cone maker stayed unpacked until this winter.  I dusted it off, put it on the shelf, and waited for warmer weather.  I went to the store the other day to buy new syrup for it, and reading the labels, discovered that there wasn’t a single brand whose ingredients didn’t start with “high fructose corn syrup.”  This is on our “absolutely avoid” list – so I came home and started thinking.  The ingredients were all basically:high fructose corn syrup, water, flavor, color, citric acid. What could I use that would have a pretty strong flavor to mix with the sugar to make a syrup for snow cones?  Then I looked at a Kool-Aid packet — the ingredients are basically: flavor, color, and citric acid.  So, there, you go — flavored snow cone syrup sans high fructose corn syrup.  You’re free to make any flavor you want – and it will be in a variety of fun colors for kids.
