Indy's premiere New Orleans style Sno-Ball truck
"New Orleans style sno-ball? what's the difference between that and a snowcone?"
They're both made from ice and flavorings, but that's about where the similarities end. Calliope serves only the best syrups you can find, handmade by us with quality fruits & extracts, all from scratch! The ice is fine-shaved not crushed, which both makes it downright silky and suspends the syrup throughout the Sno-Ball. No more drudging through tons of crunchy flavorless ice to get to a bunch of artificial flavor at the bottom.
We're Lori, Nich (Lori's husband) and Beverly (Nich's mom). Lori moved to Indy from New Orleans years ago. Although she loves Indy, she missed the sno-balls from her home city, where you could find a sno-ball stand on practically every corner. As we took trips to New Orleans, sno-ball stops became increasingly important in the itinerary, so much so that the last trip we made we started planning everything around trying new stands! So we decided to bring the AWESOMENESS that is the New Orleans sno-ball up north.
Fun trivia: Calliope Sno-balls gets its name from one of nine streets in New Orleans named after the Greek muses. Calliope is the muse of Epic Poetry. It's also the middle name of our daughter & lead taste tester, Madeleine.
