Hansen’s Sno-Bliz
Hansen’s was started in1939 by Ernest Hansen, who engineered a loud homemade machine that shaves the ice to a fineness that many argue is unmatched across the city. (Oh, and they will argue.) The shop is still run with considerable care and attention by his granddaughter, Ashley. Snow balls are a minor obsession in New Orleans—cups of finely shaved ice topped with brightly colored, sweet flavorings. While widely available, snow ball culture seems more advanced at Hansen’s. The selection of flavors is vast, and true connoisseurs mix and match flavors, adding two or three to an order get just the right balance (Almond-lime? Orange-coconut?).
