On Cloud 9
Posted by:  Brendan Keating

You're going to love Xue Hua Bing. The Taiwanese delicacy, translated as "snow ice" in the States, looks like a slice of Viennetta with toppings on it and tastes like a sunny Sunday afternoon. The concoction, shaved from a block of milk, sugar, and fresh fruit, is light and fluffy, yet melts like ice cream. Cloud 9, in Lakeview, is Chicago's first snow ice emporium. The basic flavors they offer: vanilla, mango, green tea, and strawberry, come with a variety of toppings and sauces. Apart from the tastiness of their offerings, there are a lot of reasons to feel good about eating at Cloud 9. Everything is made from fresh ingredients. It's family owned. And snow ice is rich in taste and texture but poor in fat and calories. Cloud 9 is so heavenly, it's sure to become a new dessert staple.
