If you have ever been to New Orleans you know what a snowball is . If you have ever been to SNO-LA , you know what heaven is.
For those of you who have never experienced New Orleans in the summer time , snow balls are our favorite sweet treat. It is ice which is sometimes stuffed with ice cream and saturated in whatever flavor you desire. The quality of a “snowball stand” is normally determined by how soft the ice is. Yes, there is a HUGE difference between a snow ball and a snow cone ! Snow cones typically have hard shaved ice , light flavor , and are never stuffed with anything.
There are so many different snow ball stands in New Orleans . Each have their own uniqueness. One of my favorite stands is SNO-LA. SNO-LA snow ball stand or technically store are the originators of cheesecake stuffed snowballs . Also, they offer a mason jar in lieu of the normal styrofoam cup most commonly used to serve the sweet treat. Their menu consist of regular , supreme and special flavors. The regular flavors are great but the supreme and special are gourmet snowballs that you won’t find anywhere else.
The Chantilly Cake flavored Snow ball is my personal favorite. It is half wedding cake and half cream strawberry flavor. This treat is not only stuffed with cheese cake but it is stuffed with blueberries and strawberries. Blueberries and strawberries also top the snowball along with your choice of either condensed milk or whipped cream. This beautiful snow ball is HEAVEN….in a cup.
If you’re having a taste for something sweet, go down to SNO-LA and enjoy this beautiful treat!
