A  Quick  History  Of  Snoballs
Characterized by expert ice-shaving techniques, snoballs are pillowy mounds of ice flavored with syrups. Unlike snow cones, whose ice is more coarse, a snoball’s texture is smooth, more like that of Italian ice. In 1934, Ernest Hansen built the first-ever “Sno-Bliz,” a block-ice shaving machine that modernized the growing industry of corner snoball stands. Two years later, New Orleans grocer George Ortolano developed the SnoWizard, a product that also produced delicate, snow-like flakes of ice. Once the texture of snoballs was made consistent by machinery, creators focused on defining their craft with signature syrups, sauces and combinations. Snoballs come in flavors that range from fresh fruit to wedding cake, and are often drizzled in condensed milk or even stuffed with ice cream.
