I love Tropical Sno. The sno cones are not icy or grainy like a lot of the snow cones I've had before. They actually have the smooth texture of snow and the flavors are delicious. The staff is extremely courteous and friendly. They are available for private parties and events and it really makes any event a lot more fun. See More

I recently had Tropical Sno come do an adult event at my house and they were beyond amazing. She had a specialty list of flavors that were out of this world and she went above and beyond! It was the... hit of my party!!! See More

Not only is Tropical Sno delicious and so fun to find at events around town, but they will also come out to private parties! Definitely a fun add-on for any event!

What a difference shaved ice and ice chunks make for a great Sno Cone! Best of the best and love having such a great local company here in Gainesville and surrounding area's.

Tropical Sno came to us for a private VPK party. They came early to set up. They were GREAT with all of the guests. I really appreciated that they were always communicating with me about the cost a...s the party went on so that I didn't go above my budget. I loved the variety of flavors and the texture of the sno cones. I think the adults enjoyed the sno cones more than the kids. I don't know how I'll have fun at any event without a mango sno cone in my hand. Thank you so much. See More

Love Kat! And love Tropical Sno. I literally see the tropical sno booths at every event in north central Florida and the staff is always amazing. Love that they make their own sno cone syrups! Try the... pink lemonade and lime together, and thank me later! See More
