Sweetest Afterschool Treat

Casey's New Orleans Snowballs

Every kid in Austin yearns for a small spot of joy between the bookends of Ms. Gnarlclancy’s boring first-grade Linear Algebra labs at the ol’ schoolhouse and the nagging parental din of demanded chores at the ol’ homestead. Few things bring as much childhood respite as one of Casey’s New Orleans Snowballs, which are actually fluffy little hills of nearly disintegrated ice covered in pure-cane syrupy satisfaction. There is nary a miss with more than 50 flavors of the classic, ballpark choices, along with about 15 specialty cream flavors that inspired the business moniker itself. Being incredibly indecisive beings by nature, the youth-beloved "rainbow" flavor will likely be your child’s go-to. Rainbow is a real team player.
