Snowflake Paradice Is Adding More Shaved Ice, Boba Tea to San Antonio

Flora You dreamt of opening a shop that used entirely organic and natural products. While most stores use powder for their boba tea, Snowflake Paradice doesn’t. That means the staff uses natural ingredients and the freshest produce possible when creating their goodies.

Located on the northside of San Antonio, Snowflake Paradice offers three things: Taiwanese snow ice, boba teas and smoothies. Currently they offer six flavors of the snow ice and let guests choose from a variety of toppings from cookies to cheese puffs and pringles. But the coolest thing is that everything in the store is as customizable as you want, meaning you can mix all the flavors of your choosing. Currently there is just one size — a large. But with a price point starting at $5 for the snow and $4.50 for the drinks, it can only get better.

The process to make the snow ice is difficult one. It takes about two hours to create the flavor and about 10 hours for the ice to form in a special freezer imported from Taiwan. They’re constantly striving to improve the quality and create the best product for their customers. The menu is mostly healthy, catered to a health conscious crowd. Don't worry, you can add stuff like chocolate to make it not-so-healthy if you care to indulge.

While the location has been only opened since October 10, there are already plans to expand the menu and maybe even add some food to the mix.
