Snowball season may have officially wrapped last week, but here are five snoball spots around town that are able to offer a quick fix 365 days a year:
1. Ike's Snoballs: 520 City Park Ave., (504) 355-2241
Tucked away across from Delgado Community College in the bend of City Park Avenue, Ike's has an abundance of flavors as well as boudin and a signature "puppy snoball" for dogs that comes in beef or chicken flavor.
2. The Original New Orleans Snoballs and Smoothies: 4313 Elysian Fields Ave.
This Gentilly spot offers up a range of "diet snoballs" in addition to traditional offerings, as well as smoothies with names like "Healthy-N-Fit" and "Mass Builder" that indicate their status as good and good for you.
3. Tee-Eva's Old Fashioned Pies and Pralines: 5201 Magazine St., (504) 899-8350
Tee-Eva's status as a hot spot for New Orleans classic pralines and pies often overshadows the fact that it also serves up snoballs year round.
4. Red Rooster Snoballs: 2801 1/2 Washington Ave., (504) 895-6786
A bright red, recently renovated snowball stand in Central City, Red Rooster is also know for its yakamein and gumbo offerings.
5. Plum St. Snoballs (Metairie Location): Lafreniere Park, 3000 Downs Blvd., (504) 866-7996
The Uptown location of this snoball stand shuts down each October, but the recently opened Metairie outpost in Lafreniere Park stays open year round.
