5 St. Louis Foods You Have to Eat This Summer

What's your flavor? | Tropical Moose

Shaved Ice at Tropical Moose (N. Taylor Avenue & East Argonne Drive, Kirkwood)

Frozen custard is great on a hot summer night, but sometimes you want something a bit lighter. Shaved ice (a.k.a. a snow cone) comes in virtually every flavor at Tropical Moose -- including Monkey Snot. The original is next to the farmers' market in Kirkwood, but you can also stop in at the Webster Groves and Creve Coeur locations. Oh, and if you want to sound like a regular: it's TroMo.
