“Snoballs” (or “snowballs”) are the New Orleans version of a snowcone, but soo much better and made differently.  Snoballs are made of shaved ice which results in a fluffy, fine, snow like consistency versus snowcones which are made of lumpier, crushed ice.  Plum St. is supposed to be one of the best in New Orleans so I went there.  Hansen’s is supposed to be good as well.  You can get them in a S,M,L cup or S,M,L pail like the one in the sign above that looks like a takeout box.  I saw some people order the large pail, but I have no idea how you can consume that much snoball!  I tried the nectarine flawor and it was delicious!!  Highly recommend going there if you are in New Orleans.  Here’s an article with more background on snoballs.
