I actually bought the drink mixes to make snow cones. Do you have a snow cone machine? We were all about snow cones last year, and while we have a snow cone maker, we found it was actually quicker to use the shaved ice feature on our freezer's ice dispenser. I got a little tired of buying the snow cone syrup, though. This is what I'm going to try next. I have some root beer extract, too, which I think I can use to make the root beer-flavored syrup.
