    Poll D-Mo Twitter Poll: Snowballs or SnoCones

    D-Mo started a poll on Twitter today, which has been quite popular. So I thought I'd post the same thing here.

    In which content are you wishing to use the word. Snowball, if you are eating it. Snowcone if it is a baseball caught at the top of the webbing.

    Given we are on RP, I'm going food.

    We always called them snow cones growing up, never even heard of it being a snowball until I moved to Lafayette for college.

    Got a lot of votes on it, over 2k. He even got Pat Mahomes the Texas Tech QB going into the draft to weigh in on it. Team LA is overwhelmingly snowball. Everywhere else is mostly snowcone.

    Same here. Never heard of a snowball until I made a trip to NO in the 60s.

    Lived in and around Lafayette for 38 years, always been snowcone for me. Even though it's almost always been in a cup.

    I grew up in Opelousas and was always a snowball except when a red neck carnival came to town. They sold snow cones. Moved to NOLA and it's snowball. Shaved ice is a NOLA invention along with the hundreds of flavors, and creamed toppings.

    Not sure about NOLA inventing shave ice. It's all over Hawaii and supposedly got there from Japanese immigrants long, long ago.

    Pretty sure that was done by scraping blocks of ice with a hand made utensil of some type. I think a New Orleans man invented the first electric scraper to shave blocks of ice but never marketed it. Another N.O. man later invented a different version and created a company to sell them.

    Same here. Snowballs just sounds Yankee to me.

    Snowballs are for throwing. Snowcones are for eating. Besides, Mrs. Jagneaux at the Red Barn called them snowcones, and that is good enough for me.
