As we mentioned in our last Flavor Friday, it has become a long standing tradition to use Sweetened Condensed Milk over Shaved Ice, and for good reason, it is delicious. However, we believe we have a product that blows Sweetened Condensed Milk out of the water… or at least off the top of your shaved ice!
The product is our Snowie Cream Topping and today we have put it to the test directly against Sweetened Condensed Milk in a taste test among Snowie employees. They did not know what the test is for except that Callie mentioned that we were working on a new cream topping. We wanted it to be focused more on their reaction to overall taste than anything else, so we simply asked, “which is more delicious?” Earlier in the video we let you, the viewer, know which cups were topped with Sweetened Condensed Milk, and which were covered in Snowie’s Cream Topping but the employees at Snowie had no idea.
To do this test, we figured it would be best to take the product to them while they are performing their duties for Snowie. This way they did not have flavors on their mind and we were able to get a more impulsive reaction to which product tastes better.
Our first test was to the shipping department where Chris, Marcel, and CJ were asked to delay their lunch to take a quick test. Marcel was a little reluctant because in another recent video, that has not made it to public eyes, we tricked him into tasting a repulsive flavor. It was really funny and we are looking forward to showing you soon.
However, once his anxiety subsided, all three of them, while they enjoyed the Shaved Ice with Sweetened Condensed Milk, they loved our Shaved Ice or Snow Cone Flavors covered in Snowie’s Cream Topping. This was truly an unscripted test and you can tell that Callie and I were excited by the result of these three.
While we were making the next batch, Callie stopped Jeremy while he was walking back to the bus area. Jeremy also liked them both but favored the Snowie Cream Topping. We then bumped into Carl and Estela and asked Estela to try them out. Carl was on the phone, so we caught him a bit later. Estela, similar to everyone else so far, liked both of the toppings, but when it came down to it, she chose the Sweetened Condensed Milk. So, to be a make it a little more lighthearted, we gave her a buzzing sound and a red X!
We then end the test with Carl. He liked both products a lot. It was looking like he was going to choose the Sweetened Condensed Milk, but in the end he chose Snowie’s Cream Topping as his favorite topping for Shaved Ice. Carl did mention that he cares more for ice cream in his Shaved Ice than he does Cream Topping, but this was a very close second to that option. Callie also brought up how there are health department concerns with Ice Cream, so it is nice to have this alternative.
So although it was not unanimous like it was for us in West Monroe, Snowie’s Cream Topping was still highly favored among the employees at Snowie Shaved Ice!
