SNOOKIE’S COOKIES & MORE… “Original New Orleans Snoballs Have Come To Glendale!”

We hadn’t thought of dessert venues for our food and wine blog until my husband and I stumbled upon an ad in the L.A. Times with a giant photo of New Orleans snoballs on it.  My husband knows how much I love authentic snoballs, and we were both curious just how close they would be to the real thing.  We were both skeptical.  That is, until we arrived at Snookie’s Cookies & More in Glendale and tried the colorful icy treats.

I have a real adoration for snoballs.  They’re not snow cones, shaved ice or “slushies”.   They’re snoballs.  Completely different from the others entirely.  With a snoball, the ice packs distinctly and is the consistency of “soft fresh snow” rather than the coarse granular crunchy ice of snow cones or the watery texture of “slushies”.  The flavorings really do taste unique compared to other syrups, and there’s just a certain experience one gets when consuming a real snoball.  My husband and I try to get down to New Orleans twice a year for the terrific Blues and Jazz music, world-renowned Creole cuisine and southern hospitality.  When we do, we always make a point to do three specific things among everything else on our itinerary: have lunch at Commander’s Palace in the Garden District (their 25-cent unlimited martinis are a great way to enjoy a relaxing delicious meal!), relish in  powdered sugar-coated beignets at Cafe Du Monde on Decatur Street, and get brilliantly-colored flavorful snoballs!  Let me just start by saying that if we happen to miss a future planned trip to the Crescent City, there will be a little bit of New Orleans waiting for us at Snookie’s, because their snoballs are the real deal.  

Take a look at the endless flavorings offered at their establishment below!

There is indeed an art to making authentic snoballs.  Snookie’s General Manager, and new Orleans native, Brigitte Tailet, insists that two main ingredients are required for such a feat: real New Orleans snoball flavorings, and a traditional New Orleans snoball machine.  Both, which she has personally retrieved from the Big Easy herself!  Brigitte believes the proper southern Louisiana chilling treat cannot be properly made any other way.  And guess what…we agree with her.  The photo below shows Brigitte’s devotion to keeping real southern snoball flavorings available at Snookie’s…and there are even more than are in this photo inside the Snookie’s kitchen!

Above, the two essential ingredients for making authentic New Orleans snoballs…a real snoball machine and flavorings straight from New Orleans! The finished products, coconut  cream and nectar snoballs ready to enjoy.  Pure snowy perfection!

Snookie’s Cookies started as a family business. Sold to new owners in 2007, the company now has a total of more than 27 years of success, and they’re still going strong.  The “secret” recipes were passed along from the originators, and the comapany is commonly known as the “Cookie Company to the Stars”, catering to the sweet tooth of the elite from Hollywood studio executives to celebrities alike.  In fact, Rick Dees gave Snookie’s Cookies a helping hand in spreading the world about their incredible cookies by mentioning their company on the air after these cookie masters sent him a box to try a year after being open for business!  (Thank you, Mr. Dees for spreading the word)!

As excited as I was about the new addition of New Orleans snoballs to the sweet treats menu at Snookie’s, we cannot go without telling you about all the other fantastic delec-tables Snookie’s Cookies offers.  From the original Snookie’s Cookies, like the white chocolate-chip and milk chocolate-chip versions above, to the oatmeal raisin and peanut butter baked confections below.  Light, crumbly and unlike any cookie we’ve ever had, these sweet delights are just right for any occasion!

Snookie’s Cookies also offers some of the most beautiful gift baskets around.  And if you can imagine it, they probably have it in terms of themes of baskets and what will go inside. Try some personalized cookies, give the unique gift of logo cookies, or select a container of photo cookies or even a photo cookie cake!  Have cookies, brownies, muffins and cakes delivered right to your office or home, or have them sent to someone special.  Balloons, Milk On Ice (what a clever idea!), fragrant milk baths, candles…the list is literally endless.  Take a look at the Snookies website link below to read about their story and see everything they have to offer.

You can’t miss Snookies Cookies.  The entire exterior of the establishment is a vibrant purple color, which continues inside from the purple and white checkered floors to the interior wall color.  It’s fun, sassy and definitely a place you should stop by to satisfy your sweet tooth or the sugar craving of loved ones.  Drive by on your way home from work if you want to, because Snookie’s Cookies is open until 8 PM EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK!  We’re talking serious cookie business here!  The devoted staff of Snookie’s is hard at work putting smiles on the faces of customers and a whole lot of love in their products for others to enjoy.
