With all this weirdly hot and humid weather, The Sauce has become obsessed with ice-cold sweets. My most recent frosty foray was to taste-test North Pole Snow Cream, a feathery frozen treat that lives in an enchanted world somewhere between ice cream and shaved ice.
We're told that Snow Cream is made by shaving a light ice cream made with 2% milk into a lovely pile of fluff.
