Epiblogue: Snow cone syrups

Submitted by on Monday, 18 May 2009 No Comment
Do I ever feel like a dolt after my post last night lamenting the difficulties of finding dye-free snow-cone syrups.

I went to a Middle Eastern market today to pick up some hummus ingredients and ran right into the solution. Or, at least, Boots did, and I'm dang happy the display didn't topple.

It's Adriatic syrups. No dye, no preservatives, no high fructose corn syrup, $3.99 a liter. It's a little thick to easily pour over a snow cone, but it's a breeze for slushees. And it tastes a heck of a lot better than the brightly colored antifreeze of normal snow cone fame.

The market I visited stocks sour cherry, blueberry, raspberry, black current and, yes, even pomegranate. And to think I spent much more than that for a smaller bottle of pomegranate syrup with evil Red Dye #40 in it.

The down side for the rest of you: I'm having trouble finding it online. I did track down one site that carries the sour cherry, black current and blueberry, though I've never ordered from it and can't vouch for its reliability.

If you happen to live near a Middle Eastern market, though, check it out. Maybe they could order it for you if they don't carry it already.
