I grew up in Utah where there was a lot of sno-cones or shave-ice available, but a snowball is something special. Our hosts took us to Williams Plum Street snowball, because it’s the best. They make your snowball in a Chinese take-out pail, wrap it in a plastic bag, and put tons of syrup on it.
And the syrup is different. It’s so good. It doesn’t make your throat scratchy the way normal sno-cone syrup does. And the flavors……..YUM! I had praline flavor and it was so good. You can also get praline and cream, which has sweetened condensed milk over the the top.
Next time I get to New Orleans I’m starting with beignets and then heading for a snowball, and throwing in a po-boy for dinner.
