It’s rare to catch a glimpse of a snow cone in New York City—except
for maybe when the circus is in town. Handsome Dan’s Stand, in Williamsburg's Mini
Mall, is changing that. The shop sells snocones in
grown-up flavors like thyme dream, earl grey cream, orange blossom
ginger, rose pomegranate, and chili passion fruit.
The housemade syrups double as flavors for sodas; lavender lemonade and egg creams round
out the seasonal drink menu. The tiny shop, which has a
candy-cane-striped pipe in the middle of it, is stocked with about 100
nostalgic candies, including Ring Pops and Pixy Stix for the kids of the
eighties and Mallo Cups for the baby boomers.
