RE: snow cone wachines. what type?
As a consumer, and being from Baltimore, where Snoballs are a way of life in the warm weather, and having grown up with the larger nuggets of crushed ice made by the locally manufactured SnoMaster machine, I prefer the Hawaiian style shaved ice which has become more popular here in the past 10 years. This is also New Orleans style and the machines say Sno Wizard on them I believe. They use blocks of ice.
