Must-try snoball stand in New Orleans: Hansen's Sno-Bliz
- This family-owned stand has been open for 84 years and was honored with an America's Classic award from the James Beard Foundation.
Our order: Creambeaux, satsuma with condensed milk and one of the daily specials (guava orange with whipped cream).
- Hansen's makes its own syrups and does weekly flavor specials and toppings, like bananas Foster. You can also get a 3-gallon "Party-Bliz Bucket" to go.
Zoom out: Ernest Hansen built one of the first electric ice-shaving machines and patented it in 1934, according to the James Beard Foundation. His granddaughter, Ashley Hansen, now runs the business.
Worth noting: Expect to wait at least 30 minutes for a snoball, but as their motto goes, "there are no shortcuts to quality."
