Thirty-five years of living in Louisville has not diminished J.J. Boudreaux’s memory of the Sno-Balls he enjoyed almost every summer evening when he was a kid in New Orleans. Even as an adult, whenever he returned to the Big Easy for a visit, he would walk down the street for a Sno-Ball.

Now Boudreaux has decided it is time for Louisville to enjoy this treat as well  Boudreaux’s New Orleans Style Sno-Balls is open for business in Middletown, at 11816 Shelbyville Rd.

Hot and thirsty people needing summertime refreshment can choose from a variety of flavors: blueberry, pina colada and tiger’s blood (a mixture of raspberry and strawberry with a hint of coconut), Hawaiian (an hibiscus-ginger blend) Key lime, cotton candy or blueberry. Make any flavor creamier with sweetened condensed milk or evaporated milk, or give it serious tang with a layer of snosour.
