    My family and I eat snow cones almost every night for a treat while watching tv and I normally buy the snow cone syrup BUT the stores are starting to run out and I decided to try kool-aid and I came on here tonight and see if I could find out how much sugar and water to use. I followed the recipe exactly and OMG, its just as good as the snow cone syrup I have been buying and much, much cheaper! As my family empty the bottles I will be able to make more flavors and reuse the bottles. I was wondering what I was going to do this winter when I was having my withdrawls from snow cones but now I don't have to worry :)

    I made this recipe but, I substituted Splenda for the sugar since I'm diabetic and it tasted wonderful. Thanks!

    If you use the sugarfree packets (not the unsweetened kind) of kool-aid, this makes a very low calorie treat for both kids and adults. I take several packets and add water then place the mixture in a bottle. After I get the shaved ice, all I need to do is squeeze the syrup from the bottle onto the ice. You can also get more variety of flavors using kool-aid instead of purchasing snowcone syrups.
