When you pour over the strawberry sauce, the cotton candy starts to melt right before your eyes!

The melting cotton candy also revealed the ice cream and whipped cream; it looks delicious!

The ice is flavored with both milk and condensed milk. It’s smooth and light, like a fine powdered snow.
The texture changes as it melts away in your mouth!

The strawberry sauce, with pieces of fruit in it, adds to the flavors, making the rich ice have a refreshing aftertaste.

The strawberry on top was sweet and delicious too.
There’s plenty of whipped cream and ice cream too, making this a filling treat.

I broke the pastry bowl into pieces for the latter half of the shaved ice and ate them together.

The pastry was nice and crispy. There’s just a hint of salt to it, which complements the sweetness of the shaved ice.
