Parker's Water Ice and Shocking Confessions

Posted By on Wed, Aug 21, 2013 at 3:27 PM

When Coworker B told me that he preferred pancakes over waffles, I realized that I did not know him at all.

Then, then ... he confessed that when it comes to frozen desserts, he could take 'em or leave 'em. Over frozen yogurt, ice cream, custard, gelato, et al, and during the hottest of days, he would opt for a cookie. A cookie!

I think of him now and about this mango sno cone from Parker's Water Ice. It is the perfect treat for a muggy day like today.


I went for straightforward with one flavor, but witnessed a customer create a crazy-colorful cup with multiple flavors of ices. There are some 30-plus flavors ranging from grape lemonade and tropical splash to banana and root beer.

Parker's also offers about two dozen flavors of soft serve — pistachio nut, cheesecake, blackberry, etc. — all of which can be made into a milkshake.
