Sno-balls: Bayou Country Summer Favorites
Here in Louisiana’s Bayou Country, sno-balls are a staple for beating the heat! Residents can often have pretty “heated” discussions as to who has the fluffiest ice, or the best handcrafted syrup.
Sno-balls, originated by Ernest Hansen in New Orleans back in the 1930s, are much different from any other previous versions of these sweet treats. Unlike their more “course” counterpart sno-cones, sno-balls are fluffy mounds of ice soaked with the sweetest flavored cane syrups. These flavors range from strawberry and bubble gum, to the creamier choices like wedding cake and cheesecake. If you truly have a sweet tooth, you can also get these delicious creations “stuffed” with a scoop of decadent ice cream to satisfy your craving.
Grabbing an ice cold sno-ball on a hot summer day in Louisiana’s Bayou Country, is as easy as turning a corner. Throughout Terrebonne Parish, you can find several sno-ball stands, run by the friendliest of locals, who take pride in serving these perfect, cool concoctions. Check out some of our local offerings.
