Score:7/10

These things are pretty good, but the caveat is that you need to let them defrost for while before they becomes truly edible. You could eat them frozen if you want a cold treat, but the center will be nearly solid and a pain to chew through.

The recommends like ten minutes or something around that, but the ideal amount of time to wait before eating one of these is forty minutes in my opinion. In other words, dump a bunch of these into a bowl and let it sit at room temperature for forty minutes. Then eat. If you wait any longer than that, then they get too warm and aren’t that good. At this time, I find that they are still kind of cold, but the filling has mostly defrosted and is creamy.

Overall, a good treat that requires some wait time.

Restaurant Review: Snow Show

Details: Located at 133-33 41st Ave, Flushing, NY 11355. A claimed Yelp page can be found at https://www.yelp.com/biz/snow-show-flushing

Score: 7/10

Snow Show is an Asian dessert place that focuses on shaved ice among other desserts. They have just about every variety of shaved ice.

I ordered the Taro Bingsu, which cost about eleven dollars. It comes with a slice of cheese cake, bubble tea tapioca balls, and condensed milk on the side. It was good. The coolest thing was probably the dry ice that it’s served with. They poor water on the dry ice and it look like smoke is coming from the dessert. The serving size is also confusing to describe. It was enough for one person, but maybe not enough for two people.

The interior is the main reason you come here. It’s very pink and very cute. It’s perfect for a date spot or hangout with your girlfriends.

Overall, this place is great and an easy recommendation for people looking for a cool dessert place to hang out.

Restaurant Review: Ample Hills Creamery

Details: Located at 34-02 30th Ave, Astoria, NY 11103. Official site is https://www.amplehills.com/

Ample Hills is a relatively well known franchise of ice cream places. A new one opened in Astoria not too long ago and I decided to come by and give it a try.

First thing to know is that for the near future, there will be a huge line around the block for this place that generally takes about an hour to get through, at least during peak hours. This place is popular.

They have some unconventional flavors here. I got the honey flavor ice cream and the raw deal, which was ice cream with pieces of candy in it like Reese’s pieces and cookie dough. They have four serving sizes. I got the small which was around six dollars. You can get two flavors in each serving size.

The honey ice cream was a little weird I don’t recommend it. Too syrupy and sweet, even for ice cream. The raw deal was okay.

Overall, this place is just okay.

Score: 6.5/10
