You can now simultaneously cool off and fulfill your sweet tooth at the new Uptown Snoballs, which celebrated its grand opening on Feb. 7.
The New Orleans-style shaved ice spot is located at the old Cali Tacos parcel at 1003 4th St. N in St. Petersburg, and don’t get "snoballs" confused with snow cones. "Snoballs" are light and fluffy, not dense. Visitors can choose from more than 100 different house-made syrups and flavors to go on top of your shaved ice, or choose to add a scoop of ice cream for $1.
St. Pete’s newest frozen dessert eatery also offers gourmet popsicles, ice cream, sundaes and floats. And if you’re craving something that’s a little more than a dessert, opt for an "Uptown Snoball" wine popsicle, which is served in a glass of white or red sangria.
