Snowflake

Snowflake Freeze

Price: $ 8

Description: Snowflake, also our logo, represents our new, refreshing and hyper-customizable concept of liquid nitrogen dessert making at 77K Freeze.  We are about inclusiveness, offering choices and creating dessert that anyone can have and enjoy guilt-free.  Our snowflake is created with lychee and water chestnut.  This combination allows the subtle sweetness of lychee to come through the refreshing texture of water chestnut.  Snowflake can be appreciated as a frozen yogurt, ice cream made with fresh cream or milk (a lighter version), coconut, soya, almond or a mixture of these milks for the vegans.  Coconut-almond milk mix is highly recommended.  Sweetness level and the type of sweetness can also be adjusted.
