Thank you to Nostalgia Electrics for providing me with a sample to review. All opinions are my own.



Summer is in full swing and it is HOT here in Texas. We are always looking for fun ways to stay cool and what better way to chill out then with homemade snow cones! Nostalgia Electrics Old Fashioned Carnival Snow Cone Cart is the perfect solution to hot Summer days. Easy to use and fun to look at, the snow cone cart adds an old world touch to any get together!

We had the chance to test out the Old Fashioned Carnival Snow Cone Cart for ourselves and it’s been a major hit! It does take some assembly as the cart part of the machine needs to be put together. It took us about an hour to get together.

Operating the machine is a snap! Just grab some ice out of the freezer, let it sit out for about 15 min or until it becomes wet to the touch and then place it in the hopper on top of the machine. Close up the hopper, press the on button and let it go. Within seconds I was seeing perfectly shaved ice! The snow was light and fluffy and the perfect texture for snow cones.

Nostalgia Electrics Old Fashioned Carnival Snow Cone Cart Review

We had picked up some snow cone syrups, cones and straws at our local grocery store and with the included scoop, were able to make perfect snow cones! We hosted a little get together at our home for our friends and the kids were just going crazy for the snow cones and to watch it make the snow.  The best part for me, is that since it’s only grinding ice it makes for an easy clean up! The machine does come with an extra replacement blade which is nice since it will help to prolong the life of the machine.

    We LOVE snow cones and I love all things vintage — this would be a great win for us! Thanks for the chance.

  2. Kelly Tupick says

    This is so neat and I love it. I know the whole family would love this as we are into vintage things and this would be a perfect fit at my husbands shop.

  3. says

    We would so love this, we have a commercial 6-cup popcorn maker already we asked for one of our wedding anniversaries, this would make an excellent accompaniment to that!

  4. Trisha W. says

    We loved shaved ice here and with the triple digit temps we’ve had lately, this would be a welcome treat.

  5. MJ Dee says

    This is so cool and brings back so many great memories of Palisades Amusement Park. Snow Cones are a must for the hot summer days. Our family would get a lot of use out of this! Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  6. lisa says

    That’s so cool! You’re house is going to be the cool mommy go to house.I’d love to have one of these. When it’s hot outside, I’m always running to the corner store for an Icee. On the Pinterest, I’m not much of a computer user. I don’t know what a URL is, I put my user name down verification. I hope that’s okay?

  7. Debbie Welchert says

    This would be so neat to have. I haven’t had a snow cone in so many years. I know my grandchildren would love it and so would I.

  8. Gail Williams says

    My granddaughters would love this, especially for the sleepovers they have at grandma’s house!

  9. Jenifer says

    I love this! My kids would love to have this and it would be so much fun for our summer pool parties!

  10. Dave S. says

    My kids would love to have this machine. We have a small one and it takes quite a while to make enough for 2 kids. How long does this machine take to make enough for the group of kids you had over?

  11. marnie ward says

    Who wouldn’t love the old fashioned snow cone machine. I still love snow cones of every flavor. This would be better than a lemonade stand.

  12. Maridan Valor says

    I love the look of the , it’s so cute. I’d love to win. Thank you very much for this chance to win a cool prize.

  14. Athena Emmanouilidis says

    This is pretty awesome.The kids and adults alike would love it.The antique-like look makes it look adorable too.

  15. says

    This is so cool – would be great at our huge extended family gatherings and for some community fun my daughter and her husband do with the volunteer fire department.

  16. Laura S. says

    I ate snow cones practically every day when I was pregnant with my second child. It had to be sour grape flavored! :)

  17. Linda G. says

    I would love to win this for my grandson, he asked for a snow cone machine last Christmas and Santa didn’t leave him one!

  18. April Farley says

    This would be so much fun ! We have 10 gran babies . They would all go coo coo for this! It would also be awesome to use as a fundraiser @ church and @ the babies schools. One little machine endless possibilities.

  19. Tamra Phelps says

    This is so cute! I have a niece who is 10 & 2 nephews, 9 & 5, that spend their days here a lot, & they would love this!

  20. says

    This would be great especially now since it is going to be in the 90’s all week. We all really like cold refreshing treats like snow cones when it is hot like this. We will have to look into getting one when we can afford it. Thanks for the review, it looks like it would be fun to use too.

  21. Jan Lee says

    I never thought about it, but of course it would be easy cleanup since it’s just water that’s used in the machine 😉 Glad to hear there’s a second blade too. Would love to win this for my great niece and great nephew and their friends! :)

  22. Lisa G says

    Love this snow cone maker, reminds me of when I was younger. Such a neat item. My nieces and nephews would love this!!

  23. Lisa Williams says

    Wow! I love this and I would be a big hit in the summertime with the neighbor kids,I would also use it at my kids’ school charity drives and events.

  24. Tara L says

    This looks so awesome this would be great for the summer time and be great for kids to sell some snow cones verses lemonade (:

  25. Cheryl Rahkonen says

    I can remember shaving ice by hand to make snow cones for my children. Needless to say, we didn’t have them to often. Now I have grandchildren (18 to be exact) and would love to have the Old Fashioned Carnival Snow Cone Cart to make snow cones for them–this would be so easy. Can you imagine shaving ice by hand for 18 grandchildren? That would probably send me to an early grave. lol I like that this product comes with an extra blade–we could be making snow cones for a long time.

  26. Gladymar Rodriguez says

    I would love to win this. I would even dare start selling snow cones to the culinary school students that are behind the house lol

  27. michelle salais says

    What an awesome review! I totally love it. My mom has a popcorn machine one just like this.

  28. Ron Casteel says

    I like that it is easy to put together and how it shaves the ice so finely a great summer treat for everyone

  29. Anita L says

    Thanks so much for your review! It looks like the children really enjoyed themselves as I’m sure my grand kids would also! I love that it’s simple to assemble and use. I would enjoy a snow cone myself :)

  30. Nahoj ib says

    This is really cool. The kids in my neigborhood would love this. It reminds me of piraguas from Puerto Rico.

  31. Lesa Jones says

    I just nostalgia products and this would be such a nice addition to my retro kitchen I am in the process making.

  32. Brandy White Buneta says

    My Kids…All 5 Of Them Love Snow Cones But Its Not Usually Convenient Or Practical To Get One When Were Out & About. This Would Be Awesome TO Have!!

  33. Michelle S says

    I love this machine! I would love to be able to take it to the kid’s school for their events so that lots of kids could enjoy!!!

  34. gwendolyn blunt says

    Oh wow winning this would be truly a dream come true! Its so cool and vintage, perfect for my girls and something to pass on to them.

  35. lisa newton says

    Used to love to see the snow cone man waiting outside school everyday when we got out. Good memories. Would love to win.

  36. Jessica Opps says

    OMG! I would love to get one of these to use with our Cub Scouts and our Girl Scout troop. It would be a blast. I wonder if we could keep up with the demand if we took it to a PTA function. Either way it is awesome!

  37. says

    My 9 year old son would almost die for this…He just got the
    Nostalgia Electrics Coca-Cola edition Popcorn cart machine & the Nostalgia Electrics retro hot dog roller for his birthday & he really wants a snow cone machine…
    Yes, he chose Nostalgia Electrics items over toys, lol…but his reasoning was that he wants to make money in the future :)

  38. Jill Myrick says

    This would be the perfect way to beat the heat and I know that my kids would love it.
    But if I am being honest my husband and I would love it as much if not more than our kids would.


  39. Stacey Roberson says

    This is perfect for small parties. Our little guy would love making these on a hot summer day. Perfect for indoors or out.

  40. tina reynolds says

    Love this such a neat thing for kids. My kids would be thrilled and we could share with friends and family making quite the hit.

  41. Barb Stenby says

    this looks so easy to clean and looks like it makes great sno cones! If I won this my husband would be over the moon! He LOVES sno cones so much.

  42. maria c says

    This looks so cool. I love that it is vintage and easy to use. My son loves snow cones. Thank you for your review.

  43. says

    I have two grandchildren, and three great grandchildren. Hubby has 15 grandchildren, and I know we sure could use this. I know him, and he would also be making them for all the neighborhood kids. He just loves kids. I love it when they call me Grandma, even if they are not mine, I still love it. Thanks for the review, I love this!

  44. Rebecca Swenor says

    This is so cool. I have never seen the snow cone one before but I have seen the popcorn carts. Thanks for sharing.
