Snowballs: Shaved Ice in Clarksville

I'm not telling you that you should mix marshmallow into your snowball. I'm just tell you that the option is out there.

Outside the Kendall Hardware on Rte 108 is Snowballs, a stand with refreshment in dozens of flavors. Crushed ice with flavor pumped onto them. They also do mix-ins. I wouldn't ruin a snowball with Nerds, marshmallow or caramel. My blood orange ice was perfect -- good flavor and enough to last through the entire bowl. But kids these days! They're mixing in peanut butter!

My ices have really been delicious -- both blood orange and lemon. I know it's just a bottled flavor, but the folks were friendly and it felt nice to sit on a hot day scooping soft ice with a spoon.

Now that school is out, the Snowball is open noon to about 8 or 9 pm. If you're not out west in Clarksville, consider some options for cool dessert on a hot night -- Soft Stuff in Ellicott City for ice cream, Rita's in Columbia for gelati, or KyKy's Hawaiian Ice in Elkridge for snowballs.

Snowballs might be a part of Camp Fulton!
