Frequently asked questions

Answer: Raspado derives from the word “raspa” which “to scrape”, in Spanish. Originating in Mexico, and extremely popular in Tucson, Arizona, the raspado is made with crunchy ice (like a snow cone), and topped with fresh fruit puree, fruit and condensed milk. Whereas shave ice has a consistency finer and more pillowy, like freshly fallen snow. It allows the ice to absorb the flavor more evenly thanks to its plethora of super tiny ice bits, unlike a raspado or snow cone, where the syrup so often drains to the bottom.

Sweetie’s Shave Ice and Raspados has brought the two worlds together, where one could enjoy the fine fluffy snow with fresh fruit raspado puree, such as fresh fruit mango, strawberry, lime, pineapple and horchata OR the classic “snow cone” syrups such as cherry, blue raspberry and Tiger’s Blood, just to name a few. We also offer yummy toppings and ice cream.

Answer: We recommend sweet condensed milk (lechera), whip cream, or our fluff. We also highly recommend adding a scoop of ice cream to the middle for some delicious creaminess.
