Is eating snow a good way to quench thirst?

One idea is that it cannot quench thirst and it may even be harmful to the taste buds as it is very cold and can ruin them. However, considering that snow is actual water - just frozen to a degree - the properties of snow would accomplish similar results as the properties of water.
