If there’s one thing people like to argue about in South Louisiana, it’s food. Whether it’s the best fried shrimp po boy or the best king cake, we can discuss, debate, and even yell as we defend our favorites. Since it’s hot outside, the writers of Northshore Parent decided to put together a list of their favorite snowball stands. This was completely unscientific–the writers nominated favorites and we pulled a few from the Parents Prefer Awards to round things out. In the end we got a list that we think represents some of the best places to grab a cup full of frozen perfection.
