SNO-BALL: WORLD'S OLDEST FROZEN TREAT"
the Roman Empire (27 B.C. to A.D. 395) snow
was hauled from the mountain tops to the city.
Syrup was added to make the world's first
frozen dessert, the sno-ball.
first manufactured snow was made by hand tools
such as a wood plane. Such
tools can shave a block of ice into fluffy
snow. Hand held ice shavers were designed
solely to produce sno-balls. Ice shavers made
by numerous manufacturers were available in
the late eighteen hundreds. In New Orleans
the sno-ball cooling tradition was popularized
around the 1920's. (for
