The Frozen Frog Shave Ice Las Vegas
Summer time is perfect for Shave Ice, and there is no place in Las Vegas better to get Shave Ice than The Frozen Frog Las Vegas. If you’re unfamiliar, Shave Ice is finely shaved ice, topped with fruit flavored syrups, usually served in a cup and eaten with a spoon. This is just the basic, “meat and potatoes” Shave Ice model. A scoop of ice cream in the bottom of the cup is a recommended addition as is a sweetened-condensed milk topping or “snow-cap”. But the variations don’t end there. It is difficult to get a bad Shave Ice but the really good ones are leaps and bounds above the rest. The ubiquitous treat of the islands is usually prepared properly in Hawaii, but here are some tips for making sure you’re getting an authentic Shave Ice experience in Las Vegas.
First of all, it is Shave Ice not shaved ice and never made from crushed ice (a snow cone- not even close to being as good!). The Frozen Frog Shave Ice Las Vegas secures a large block of ice in place while a set of very sharp blades shaves off one end of the block. The sharper the blade, the finer the ice shave and the better its ability to absorb those delicious syrups. If you put in the hard work of becoming a Shave Ice aficionado you will be able to tell when you have been served Shave Ice cut with a dull blade.
Syrup selection is important as well. You usually get 3 flavor choices which is really all you would want since even with large Shave Ices, real estate is limited. Some house flavor combos may have more than 3 flavors or at least toppings to augment the syrup flavors. One of the most popular flavor combinations at The Frozen Frog is the Rainbow. As the name suggests, you will get a colorful Shave Ice probably in red, yellow and blue. However, the flavors are almost never the same at different establishments. A rainbow could be cherry, blue vanilla and lemon or strawberry, blue coconut and pineapple or any number of flavor combinations from our selection of over 20 plus syrups. There are lots of flavors that you may be unfamiliar with, so just ask to sample a flavor that piques your curiosity and see where it takes you.
