When things get hot, Greensboro starts to look a whole lot like Nola these days – relaxed, laid-back, easy, etc – so much so that locals can’t even be bothered to spell “snowball” with its proper “w”. Too blissed-out to care. And if you’re puzzled by this, take a minute to actually taste those Snoballs. Then be puzzled no more. Finely-shaved wonders dripping with sugar cane-sweetened flavor await your mouth, ready to give it all the cheat codes it needs to beat the heat. Not like a snowcone or a classic shaved ice, these beauties have a texture like powder that dissolve on the tongue, leaving you with a whole lotta flavor, and nothing else. And that flavor comes in many forms; from Granny Smith to wedding cake to tigers’ blood and a whole lotta hues in between. Toppings like sweat cream and marshmellow are a sinch to add on, and there’s even pre-made classic combos for those who get intimidated by too many choices.
