With cooler weather coming up, Beach Snoballs is working at coming up with ways to keep customers craving their icy snacks.
School’s back in session and Autumn is fast approaching, but Beach Snoballs has some new additions to keep the customers coming back for their delicious frozen treats. One of the biggest additions to Beach Snoballs’ lineup is the addition of the spiked snoball, a flavored snoball with up to three shots of tequila, vodka or rum. The spiked snoballs have been around since mid-April, but the team at Beach Snoballs believes that the addition of alcohol will help bring in a more varied crowd. “Now we’ve got something for the parents, so they can come and hang out on the beach and get a snoball,” said Morgan Wujkowski, co-owner of Beach Snoballs.

With ambitious owners, top-shelf ingredients and unmatched customer service, Beach Snoballs is a business force to be reckoned with on the Pinellas Beaches.
When Beach Snoballs fopened in spring 2009, September Howat and Morgan Wujkowski were regular tourists of the area. They were immediately drawn to the icy cool treats that were served up, New Orleans style. “We were hooked from the first snoball because the ice is shaved to a powder, so it's soft and velvety,” said Howat. Now, less than three years later, Howat and Wujkowski own the joint known as Beach Snoballs. Howat is a graduate of Ferris State University with a Masters in Business Administration while Wujkowski earned her Bachelor’s from the University of Michigan.
