A snowball story

skyliteJill Rosen has a story in today's Taste section about the enduring appeal of snowballs. Our friend who is moving to San Francisco will be happy to learn that an former Marylander is operating a snowball truck out there.

That's it there.

How do you take your snowballs?

Not a snowball fan. I'd rather have ice cream

Agree whole-heartedly, AR. I've never understood the love for snoballs. I'm also not usually a fan of italian ice, also I do LOVE The Cow on Main Street in Reisterstown. If you have not experienced the power of The Cow, GO FORTH!

Ooh - The Cow! Chocolate-Banana ice with soft serve! It was a regular haunt when I lived in Owings Mills before heading north to Hampstead.

Snowcream from Opie's!

Blood Orange with marshmallow.

Chocolate with Ice Cream.

Lime with a shot of Rum.

Filipino halo-halo. Jackfruit, strips of young coconut, sweet beans, sweet bananas, shaved ice doused with evaporated milk and the whole thing topped with leche flan and ube (purple yam) ice cream. Yumm.
