Anyone who has ever lived through an Oklahoma summer knows what it feels like to be hot. 

Not warm, not slightly uncomfortable, but hot. The kind of hot you can’t escape. The kind of hot that makes you seriously contemplate your daily wardrobe and the way sweat stains will impact it. The kind of hot that makes your stomach turn just considering eating something warm, or turning on the oven, or standing outside for longer than 15 seconds. It’s because of this devil-dwelling heat that we’ve decided it’s necessary to feature snow cone stands in this month’s Restaurant Spotlight. 

Below you’ll find the best local spot for shaved ice and our Linked snow cone recommendation.

Bahama Ice

In the Edmond area, it’s all about Bahama Ice. The local joint has been slinging snow cones since 2004, and with flavors like the Harry Potter, the Cookie Monster and the Great Bambino, it’s no wonder the place is packed come summertime. Located at Danforth and Kelly, Bahama Ice is the perfect place to cool off when the Oklahoma heat rolls in. With a myriad of flavors to choose from, it’s difficult to narrow your choice to just one snow cone. However, at Linked we took the bullet for our readers and taste tested a few of the most popular ice delights. Though the Godzilla and Tinkerbell were delectable, we recommend the Bob Marley, a delightful mix of strawberry cheesecake and wedding cake. Consider the summer heat conquered.
