Snow Monkey

April 3, 2012

in dessert

I was asked to be interviewed for “MashBox,” a brand new show on MYX TV. Our shoot took place in the Westfield Topanga Mall, underneath the smoke monster

…past the classiest carousel I’ve seen in a while…

…not at Pinkberry…

…but another frozen dessert stand, Snow Monkey!

This is Mark Manguera’s (Kogi Taco Truck) and Richard Hong’s (Sorabal Restaurant Group) newest venture. You know how I’m all about the shaved ice, so I was psyched it was actually hot enough today to enjoy some.

That’s not paparazzi….

…just the camera crew capturing me doing my thing!

After being interviewed, we got to eat! Started off with some Strawberry Popping Boba shots…

…then filled up on Taro-flavored snow…

…with carob chips, sweetened red beans, Fruity Pebbles…

…and peaches…

…in honor of the show’s host, Peachies!

Her’s was strawberry snow, with boba, mochi, cereal, and Chocolate Pocky. We traded bites on-camera.

The segment will air on MYX TV late May. Thanks Snow Monkey for letting us shoot there and for feeding us a yummy treat too!

*UPDATE* Here’s the interview!

I’d have the Taro Snow with Red beans, Mochi, and a Leechee nut on top…why didn’t they get the real Boba instead of that Juicy Popping stuff that doesn’t even taste like Boba, at least not at Yogurtland?!?!?!?!

This reminds me of Fluff Ice! Are they similar?
