Snow Cones! part 2: Sweet Caroline's
The 'Pink Lady' is David's favorite - which utilizes a special nectar cream flavor. In fact, the cream drizzled on top of flavored ice is what makes a New Orleans snow ball a little different than the snow cones we grew up with here in Texas. Another interesting menu item from Sweet Caroline's that migrated it's way to Austin is the stuffed snow ball. It starts with ice and syrup in the bottom, followed by a scoop of Blue Bell Vanilla ice cream, and then topped with more fluffy ice and flavor-dy goodness-sakes!
Eco-conscious, these guys do not use styrofoam. Rather, you can carry your treat out in a chinese paper to go square container. Now thats what I call Sno-Ballin'. Check them out: www.sweetcarolinessnowshack.com
