[Local Haunts] Deadlicious Zombie street treats keeping you full during the apocalypse

For some people when spring or summer hits it usually means beaches, taking care of the yard, relaxing at the pool, vacations. The main idea is relaxation which is our reward for getting through the winter. Of course, one thing I look forward to is a nice cold Raspa or snow cone if you will. Being from San Antonio, Texas what we lack in snow or hurricanes we make up for in rain and hail. Of course, our summers get hot; it’s the humidity that gets us.

Usually I write about movies, tv shows a convention, interview, but I want to showcase some LOCAL HAUNTS in my hometown because I love this city and honestly what better way to show the city I love to the fans of the website I love writing. So please sit back and relax as we stroll down to one of my stops here on my Local Haunt tour: Deadlicious zombie street treats! Ages ago I heard about this food truck that had a zombie theme. The vehicle decked out like a mobile haunted house with body props, flashing lights and bright colors. The menu consisted of funnel cakes, sausage on a stick and snow cones.

I thought this was a cool idea and interesting. With food trucks, it was best to follow them on social media sites to know where they’ll be next. Deadlicious then went quiet, low and behold to find out that they came back BUT with an actual location full of props, decor, video games, food. I soon realized it’s time to get myself a cool refreshing treat!

With the drive over there feeling the hot sun bake on me the reward of getting one of their favorite gifts was within my grasp. Upon arriving, I talked to the two masterminds behind the place James and Diane who was busy behind the bar making the treats. I got a chance to ask them a few questions about the past, present, and future which is one that stands out but for me, it’s the delicious treats that put them on the map with so many to choose I had to get my hands on one called the toxic zombie.

Which believe it or not by the picture is a MEDIUM snow cone. Talking with them was the real deal two hard working people making sure they deliver on their promise with just that.

Delicious treats whether it’s hot or cold treats it’s worth the drive and worth the wait since everything is hand made fresh. I have to admit the snow cone I got was smooth and delicious no brain freezes, not too sweet, not too sour. Will I go back? Of course!

They even hosted an event by having a star (Damian Chapa) from one of his popular films Blood in Blood out appear and even when time ran out for his visit he stayed to make sure everyone got a signature and pic. This is the kind of love and support this place gives.

Yeah the place may be scary to a kid, but after that first bite they are going ignore everything and be in that delicious moment. After talking to the owners you get that feeling that this is their dream project this is their baby they are raising from the ground up.

Overall the place is worth the visit especially since it’s all year long. Sure there’s numerous snow cone stands, but for quality and quantity nothing beats Deadlicious treats. The place has numerous ideas coming soon so give them a follow so you’ll always be notified about all their activities.
