The sweet treat you never knew you needed

HIGHLANDS, Texas (KTRK) -- "Well, in English, it's snow cone, and in Spanish, it's 'raspa,'" explained Joel DeMott.

DeMott and his family opened Raspa Monsters in Highlands back in 2011.

It's open year-round and serves up some of the most outrageous desserts on the East Side.

"We try to give you a cavity," DeMott laughed. "We keep the dentist in business."

Nothing is off limits at Raspa Monsters.

Snow cones are filled with candy and unique flavors.

Specialties like the "Swamp Bucket" combine fruit, candy, and salt in unexpected ways.
