Sno Crunchy Salted Caramel Ice Cream Cone Review


Sno is a relatively new ice cream company, at least to me. If you saw my other review, you’ll know I only tried them because I saw an Instagram add for their Pine Tree Mint ice creams.

I mentioned I was happy to learn they had a few other vegan offerings, but at the time, they were sold out.

I finally got my hands on one of their other flavours, which brings us to the reason for this review!

I first tried these cones just in March of this year, so this might be the newest product review I’ve written.

Only 3 cones come in a box, and while that sucks, they are relatively big – or at least, are comparable to other frozen ice cream cones I’ve seen. According to the box, the cones are supposed to be, Creamy caramel frozen dessert swirled with a salted caramel ribbon, a caramel center and topped with crunchy caramel bites.

The first cone out of my box had a lot of the crunchy caramel bites on the top. To the point if I had tipped the cone, they would’ve fallen off easily because there was so many they weren’t stuck in the ice cream. Honestly, I felt a little sick after eating them all, and that was before I even got to the rest of the cone!

Those small circle-things are the ‘crunchy bites’

The rest of the cone was pretty lack-luster, I won’t lie. The caramel on the top of the cone was weirdly warm (the ice cream was still cold so it wasn’t because it was out of the freezer), it was also very thick and goopy. It tasted good, but the texture was just very… off, in my opinion.

The ice cream itself just tasted like plain vanilla, and unfortunately, it was just on the top of the cone. The cone itself was empty/hallow, but did have chocolate coating the inside.

As far as first impressions went, this was a miss. Which sucked, because I really wanted to like this ice cream!

Luckily though, 3 cones come in 1 box, so the next time I went for a cone, I was pleasantly surprised! I swear to God, the difference between the first and second cone was night and day.

The second cone had a (thankfully) modest amount of crunchy bites on the top, the caramel was cold, not as weirdly thick, and though the rest of the ice cream I’m pretty sure was still just vanilla, it went all the way down into the tip of the cone!

The tie-breaking last cone was thankfully like the second, which leads me to think I somehow got a reject cone my first time around. I don’t know how it passed inspection, or maybe the equipment had a weird malfunction, but the other two cones in the box completely saved this product from getting written off.

While I think 3 cones for $5.97 (Wal-Mart) is a little steep, they’re less expensive than those Magnum bars or a pint of Ben & Jerry’s – and a potential of 2/3 being good – I still think this product is worth not only trying but also adding to your summer shopping list!

Have you tried these bars? What did you think of them? Did you happen to get any reject cones like I did? Let me know in the comments!
