The Snowball (Sno-ball)

A frosty, affordable treat; What's your favorite flavor?

A mound of shaved ice flavored with sweet syrups, snowballs (or sno-balls) are a New Orleans tradition that dates from the 1930s when locals George Ortolano and Ernest Hansen using the first ice-shaving machines, invented them separately but seemingly simultaneously. In a warm climate like New Orleans, icy snowballs were game changers as families flocked to enjoy the frosty, affordable treats.

A rounded top of fresh ice shaved to perfection, a sugary drizzled syrup like cherry or lime mint or something more local like bananas foster or praline pecan. The final ingredient is your anticipation. So find a stand and get in line. New Orleans snowballs are cool deliciousness.
