45+ Places to get Sno-Balls, Snocones, Shaved Ice
Here are my ultimate list of over 45 places to get a sno-ball, snocone, or shaved ice. I grew up in Louisiana, and I have to say that the sno-balls there are the best. I have fond memories of getting a sweet cold treat with my family and friends. On a nice warm day, it’s so fun to get a refreshing sno-ball with your kids. In my opinion, the perfect sno-ball is one that you can sip through a straw. My kids would tell you that their favorite sno-ball is one where they can put the flavoring on themselves.
You may call it a sno-ball, a snow cone, or shaved ice. Regardless, they are a variation of finely shaved ice served in a paper cup. They are served topped with flavored syrup. At the end of the day, snowballs are delicious regardless of whether or not they are served with a straw or a spoon, served in a cup or a coned shaped cup, or stuffed with ice cream or topped with condensed milk. Sno-balls are typically fine and fluffy, and snow cones are often crunchy with larger pieces of ice. Whatever you choose, they are a wonderful treat for you and the family.
Some snowball stands have a huge list of flavor choices. You can select from popular syrup flavors such as cherry, strawberry, grape, and lime. Some stands have sugar free flavors, and you can even find clear flavors at many locations. A stuffed sno-ball is a sno-ball stuffed with vanilla or chocolate ice cream. There are cream flavored sno-cones which is a mix of evaporated milk and the flavored syrup. You can also order your sno-cones with toppings such as condensed milk, marshmallow fluff, ice cream, or sprinkles.
