Tiger’s Blood flavored shaved ice was quintessential for summer as a kid, and now as an adult there is a souped up way to enjoy that nostalgic treat: Imperial Woodpecker Sno-Balls. These sno-balls in NY’s West Village are of the New Orleans persuasion, but they are essentially everything you remember plus some.
The syrups consist of some old and some new (like orchid cream vanilla and red velvet cake) with toppings of sweetened condensed milk and marshmallow fluff. The combinations are endless but hurry because the store is only a summer pop-up.
