The history of snow cones come from a variation of ground-up or shaved ice desserts served in cups and topped with flavored sugar syrup. These frozen iced treats are referred to as “snowballs”, “ice cones” and “snow cones”. The snowballs are made with finely shaved ice and the snow cones are made with grounded up ice that is more courser and more granular.
In the 1850’s, ice houses in New York would commonly sell ice to states like Louisiana to Florida. Huge ice blocks would be transported on wagons from the ice houses to the south where children would run up to the wagon and ask for small scrapings of ice. Eventually, mothers would prepare homemade flavorings in anticipation of their children receiving some ice. The initial homemade flavor is egg custard, made with eggs, vanilla and sugar, still a favorite today.
Now, there are a limitless amount of flavors available. LA Great Snow Cones is world-famous with its original New Orleans style flavors and taste.
