Apparently, it’s persimmon season! I havn’t heard much about this vegetable/fruit until recently, which makes sense as they are only grown in a few different places in the world, and are all shipped to Canada.

Sweet Snow Shave Ice‘s adorable truck was set up along with a handful of others offering lunch time eats to the Bay St. Boys and tourists alike. But this was something different.

A new cool treat has hit the block in the middle of the Ontario heat-wave, straight from Asia and it ain’t yo’ mama’s shaved ice snow cone, frozen yogurt, or ice cream.  This here is called Chilly Ribbons and it’s bringing frozen desserts to a whole new level of awesome.
