Today, I spotted the bright green cart in the gas station's lot (on Ponce and Moreland) and hoped to visit it soon. Having seen the cart on Piedmont and Monroe, I was pleased to find them closer to home. 'Soon' turned into this afternoon and I was getting a sugar fix with the missus. Joining us was a friend that never had one before (New Orleans style that is).
Owner Kenneth Woodfin describes the snowball (on Atlanta Cuisine Restaurant Talk) this way, "An Orleagian Snowball is an addictive frozen dessert that consists of tightly packed snow drenched with choices or combinations of up to 30 handmade flavored syrups. In addition, its lactose and fat free."
While not officially open, someone (possibly Kenneth) was there prepping the new stand. This is apparently the second one the displaced New Orleaneans have opened. Despite him planning on opening tomorrow, he was happy to give us what we came for, 2 small Dreamcicles and one 1 small cherry. Seriously nice guy!
So, go already.
