Welcome to the Academics weekly assignment for the week of June 19th, 2022! These weekly assignments will give our Professors the ability to showcase some of their lesson ideas here on the website. Each assignment will be posted for a week, in which everyone will be able to read about the topic and respond to the assignment prompt. This week's assignment is "Unmagical Studies - Snow Cones" created by Jenn (cqvetown).
The assignment is as follows:
A snow cone, also known as a “snowball” or “ice cone,” is a fairly popular dessert made up of shaved or crushed ice and flavoured syrups. Depending on the place you go, these tend to be served in either a paper or Styrofoam cone or cup. While just ice and syrup is the simplest of options, you can choose to add a variety of your own toppings! These may include, but are not limited to whipped cream, gummies, or sour spray. Sour spray is a tart and bitter liquid made out of citric and malic acid. These combined gives the spray its intense sour taste for those who aren’t the biggest fans of super sweet snow cones. Some of the most popular flavours are tiger’s blood, blue raspberry, and cherry! A few well-known snow cone franchises found within the United States are Kona Ice and Hawaiian Shaved Ice. Perhaps you have a snow cone place near you that you have yet to try!
If you could invent a new snow cone flavour, what would it be? This can be a combination of already existing flavours or completely original to you! What does it smell, taste, and look like?
