Itís time to delve into yet another shaved ice and snow cone syrup flavor that you may not have discovered yet. Sticking to your personal syrup staples may be satisfying for some time, but imagine how many tasting adventures youíre missing out on, by not trying something new and refreshing. Today, weíre discussing the Spanish beverage-inspired syrup flavor called leche, which children and adults will enjoy together.

What is it?
Leche, pronounced LEH cheh, is the Spanish word for milk. The syrup flavor tastes like the traditional Spanish dessert, leche frita (a sweet, cold milk pudding encased in a warm, crunchy, fried shell of flour and egg) blended with creamy layers of vanilla, and hints of cinnamon. When these flavors come together, it results in a decadent milkshake-esque treat.
