Snow Monster lives up to its name because it really did bring out the real Sweet Carolynn and really created a little [ice cream] cookie monster. This spot is where I realized how much I really enjoy dessert. You really can’t go wrong with any thing on their menu. Everything is so fresh and delicious, yet still very reasonably priced.
I fell in love with this place when I discovered the homemade macaroon ice cream sandwich. I particularly love the fruity pebble macaroon or the churro macaroon. My favorite ice cream is the Colombian coffee cookies and cream! The macaroon is soft but also has a little crunch, the fruity pebble one adds that extra bit of flavor to that as well! Oh it’s so scrumptious.
My second item of choice has to be the stuffed cookie sundae. This is a chocolate chip cookie stuffed with an Oreo cookie on the inside! What an amazing idea! topped with ice cream, then whipped cream, chocolate fudge, and caramel sauce.
Oh! And you can’t forget about their teas! They come in the cutest glass mason jars! Logos printed and a pretty bow to complete the look. But as mama always taught me, it is what’s on the inside that matters! The thai tea here is my favorite! It is perfectly sweet and the boba is great with it as well! They don’t over ice it and the tea to cream ratio is perfect. They can even put a cotton candy cloud around the lid! Yup, you read that correctly!
This used to be worth the drive all the way up to Westminster from South County, but now I am so so happy there is an Irvine location now!
