Confused about certain specialty frozen desserts? Here is an introduction to what gives the treats their signature style with input from a few local places.






What is shaved ice?

  • Thinly shaved or crushed ice with flavored syrups or other toppings added

  • Jose Garcia, owner of Pflugerville’s New Orleans Style Shaved Ice, describes New Orleans shaved ice as smoother in texture than a snow cone.








What is rolled ice cream?

  • A liquid cream base is poured onto a chilled pan, mixed, spread thin and rolled into petals

  • At Bonbons Thai Rolled Ice Cream and Frozen Goods in Pflugerville, signage describes rolled ice cream as “stir-fried ice cream.”








What is nitrogen ice cream?

  • A liquid cream base is blasted with liquid nitrogen in a mixer until it freezes

  • The creamy dessert is made in less than two minutes, said Jessica Tcholakov, with All Points PR, a communications firm that works with Sub Zero Nitrogen Ice Cream.
