The Snowman Cometh

by : News Canada

(NC)-Summer breezes carry the sounds of kids clamoring for icy, cool treats. The local traveling ice cream truck is now passe, with the new kid on the block, Hamilton Beach Snowman™ Ice Shaver. The Snowman™ stands ready to deliver fresh, inexpensive snow cones, slushies, frozen drinks or desserts, easily made at home for just pennies per serving.

Hamilton Beach's Snowman™ Ice Shaver is the life of the party and the backyard barbeque. Dress up birthday parties instantly with flavoured ice concoctions. Simply add fruit juices, lemonade, powdered drink mixes, sodas or other flavoured drinks to be frozen in the Snowman™ Ice Shaver's supplied ice disc molds and place in the Snowman™ Ice Shaver.

Even non-cooks will be considered gourmands thanks to an easy two-step process. For fresh ice, freeze water in the ice discs - or add ice cubes from the freezer. Add inexpensive flavourings and that's it. Clean-up is made a snap with easy to clean parts.

Children can help Mom create a special treat, and the child-friendly oversized on/off button makes it easy for little hands to start the action. As an added safeguard, the Hamilton Beach Snowman™ Ice Shaver is constructed with a safety interlock feature, which means the motor will not run when it is removed from the stand.

Designed to shave ice into mounds of soft, fluffy ice snow, the Snowman™ takes its job seriously. Leaving no hard chips or chunks, the Snowman™ Ice Shaver not only produces snow cones, drinks and even desserts, it also creates attractive buffet beds of ice for appetizers, shrimp cocktail, salads and fruits.

The Snowman™ Ice Shaver will be available early June at leading retail outlets across Canada. Suggested retail price is approximately $39.99. For more information regarding the Snowman™ Ice Shaver, visit
