Shaved ice is a popular carnival refreshment that is made by shaving ice into a fluffy, snow-like texture and then flavored with syrup. The syrup comes in a variety of flavors, ranging from fruity to sweet flavors. To make shaved ice, the ice is typically shaved off of a block of ice using a special machine. Once the ice is shaved, it is placed in a cup or cone, and then the syrup is poured over it. Shaved ice is a perfect treat for hot summer days and is popular in carnivals, fairs, and other outdoor events.
