One cool food truck: Couple brings Kona Ice to area


MANSFIELD – April Prosser needed a less stressful working environment.

She was working as a nurse in a prison when she and her husband, Bobby, decided to launch a food truck franchise. They are selling Kona Ice.

“I wanted to do something where I could be my own boss and do something that was fun,” April Prosser said.

Their decked-out, mobile shaved-ice truck features a tiki hut top, self-serve flavor wave and wild flavors such as pickle and tiger’s blood.

Prosser says Kona Ice is different from regular snow cones. For one, it’s flavored with all-natural stevia, which is plant-based.

“It’s not artificial,” Prosser said of Kona Ice. “It’s fortified with Vitamin C and D.”
