Snowizard Snoball Stand

Although we missed the very last hours of the season to grab a Sno-Bliz at Hansen’s (click for related OTB post) Snoballs are served at other shops in New Orleans year round. Another very reputable Snoball stand is SnoWizard, which claims to be the original, prior even to the existence of Hansen’s, opening in 1937. Although this fact is hotly debated between Snoball enthusiasts and Hansen’s/SnoWizard proponents, there can be no denying that the SnoWizard machine and syrups are the predominant shave ice system used by many of the Snoball stands in the city. We joined a local friend who directed us to the original SnoWizard location, which is considered to be one of the best.

We ordered a bunch of kiddie-sized Snoballs so we could try a whole bunch of flavors. My favorite so far is the Tiger’s Blood, which is like a berry/cream flavor.
