From banana to cherry, Beach Snoballs offers 55 flavors of shaved ice. The dessert shack on Treasure Island is an oasis from the sun and sand, a cool respite popular with locals and tourists.
Beach Snoballs snowed the competition in Patch's Best Customer Service contest, beating a field of 64 contenders. Second place honors go to Digital Eel design firm.
But the clear – and cool – champ is Beach Snoballs. The owners of Beach Snoballs like to boast that their icy treats are as smooth as velvet.
Readers could not agree more: "On a hot day, snoballs are a great treat!" says reader and unabashed fan Ann Sweitzer. "The flavors are so much fun. I want to keep going back until I've tried all of them! Catcus Juice is next on my list!"
Reader Joe Garnsey is a Beach Snoballs gourmand: "A watermelon Snobal is my favorite when the temp is over 80 degrees, Cherry is the best for temps under 80 degrees." OK, Joe.
"Yummy flavors and new adult beverages! Beach Sno Balls is the best," says Larry Taunt.
