Snow cones are pretty simple treats, and easy enough for anyone with some ice and syrup to make in a pinch. Despite this, they don’t appear in Minecraft – nor do any other frozen treats or confections for that matter. Maybe it has something to do with the lack of refrigeration, and that would make sense after all. But the Snow Cone Craft mod adds a number of flavored cones of ground ice and sugar to the game. These come with their own unique special effects as well, which are granted upon consumption. Just what can the snow cones in this mod do for you?
For starters, they can heal some lost health immediately rather than over time, like the way food normally heals the player. But you can’t just start making snow cones. You first need to collect some flavoring agents, like cherries or limes, from the 8 different bushes added to Minecraft by the Snow Cone Craft mod. These are mixed with empty syrup bottles to get your flavoring agent, and then you mix that with an empty cone and ice block inside of a snow cone machine to get your treats. The effects are nothing spectacular, but they do allow you to get your hands on items like potions very early in game.
The cone flavors in the Snow Cone Craft mod include cherry, orange, lemon, lime, blueberry, blue raspberry, grape and even cotton candy. Each of these unique flavors gives the eater a special buff and listed respectively, these include regeneration, night vision, absorption, haste, increased movement speed, increased strength, damage resistance and even a jump boost. Oddly enough, or maybe by intent, there is no snow cone which makes the eater invisible. The mod isn’t perfect, but it does add a bunch of useful items and other content to Minecraft, all of which works bug-free.
