Delano: Sno Fun Shaved Ice

Delano is a small town located in the Central Valley of California, north of Bakersfield. Yes, it's in the boonies. Marc grew up here so we come here once in awhile to visit his family. This is a very small town. For example, a Starbucks recently opened and Walmart hasn't invaded this place (as of yet).

To recover from the 100 degree heat during the summer months, we always visit a local joint called Sno Fun that serves shaved ice. If you've been to Matsumoto's at Northshore in Oahu, this place is even better. While Matsumoto has a little over 20 flavors, Sno Fun has well over 80. OMG! Plus they serve other things like soft-serve ice cream, halo-halo, milk shakes, root beer floats, smoothies, sundaes and more. Why settle for two sizes where you can have over 5. From kiddie to jumbo, tall or flat, this place has it all.

If you are ever driving up or down Hwy 99, exit Cecil Ave and be sure to take a pit stop at Sno Fun. We highly recommended this place. Best shaved ice in the golden state.

1329 Main St
Delano, CA 93215

What to order:
  • Our favorite flavors are strawberry cheesecake, cantaloupe, cherry, honeydew, and peaches & cream. There are tons of flavors to choose from.
  • Ask to have liquid cream added to your shaved ice. Liquid cream is essentially the cream used to make soft-serve ice cream. A medium flat shaved ice with liquid cream costs around $2.25.
  • I-C Ice is shaved ice served with soft serve ice cream.
  • Halo Halo has two sizes, medium ($3.30) and large ($3.80).
  • Shave ice prices range from $0.75 (kiddie) to $3.50 (jumbo).
Things to know:
  • Aside from the shaved ice and ice cream, this place sells some fast food items such as chili dogs, chili cheese fries, burritos, nachos, corn dogs, etc. Prices range from $1.00 to $3.25
  • During the winter season, the flavors are limited to over a dozen.

I agree about Sno Fun, it is delicious. I haven't been there in so long. I'm not sure I could brave the Delano heat though.

Hey Joanna! We should do a road trip one of these days and drop by Sno Fun on our way back. We're down!
