Sno-Balls at Pelican’s Snoballs at LBI
They’re mostly a seasonal dessert, so on this last trip to New Orleans, my standard sno-ball stores like Hansen’s Sno-Bliz, where the original sno-ball was created, weren’t open yet for the season. But I’ve enjoyed them on many trips in the past, and crave them every year as the weather warms.
For those who may not have had the pleasure of enjoying an authentic sno-ball, it’s basically a lifted version of a snow cone, but using crushed ice instead of the coarser style that you find in a snow cone. And best of all, sno-balls come with a variety of toppings, including sweetened condensed milk, which takes it to another level.
In South Jersey, finding legit snowballs was a literal impossibility for many years, but recently Pelican’s Snoballs opened a shop in Surf City on Long Beach Island, introducing this wonderful dessert to the coastal masses. from New Jersey. Their list of flavors – and flavor combinations – is incredible, with over 100 in total, including standards like Sweet Cherry and Blue Raspberry and very rare options like Dill Pickle and Fruity Pebbles. Each is incredibly light and fluffy and makes a perfect warm weather treat.
