Hansen's Sno-Bliz

4801 Tchoupitoulas Street, New Orleans, LA - (504) 891-9788

The syrups for the Sno-Blizzes are also made on site, and they have a clean taste that doesn't leave a residue in the mouth when you are finished slurping.

When the Hansen's first opened shop, this was the serving dish used for shaved ice.  It cost two cents.

This is the original shaved ice machine.  Notice the fluffyness of the processed ice.
