“great sno cones since 1939”
Hansen's Sno-Bliz was started by Ernest and Mary Hansen in 1939. Ernest invented the first ice shaving machine and Mary created her own flavored syrups. Decades later, Hansen's still makes its own flavors every day, from Mary's secret recipes, and creates snoballs from the original machine. The combination of fluffy ice and homemade syrups demand that each Sno-Bliz be made in layers – ice, syrup, ice, syrup, and so forth – so that the final product is fully saturated upholding the Hansen's motto: "There are no shortcuts to quality." Hansen's is now owned and operated by Ernest and Mary's granddaughter, Ashley. Zagat Survey for 2007-2008 rated Hansen's 29 out of 30 in the food category.
Waited in line for close to 1.5 hours to get our hands on these snoballs. Had never had a New Orleans snoball before and read these are the best. So we waited (with a grouchy daughter and husband). In the end, we were glad we did because the flavors were really interesting and the ice was very fine and different than your regular old, run-of-the-mill snow cone. Now we know what the hype is about. Would I wait in line for an hour again? Probably not. But I would definitely try a snoball somewhere else in town or go on a quiet day. We like to find the local institutions and this one is certainly that.
