Since 1976, we have made our New Orleans style Sno Ball Flavors with 100% pure cane sugar. Ralph’s began as a small family venture and quickly grew into an international business. We started with a 100% cane sugar simple syrup recipe and we still use that same recipe today. It has stood the test of time. We opened our first little "Stand" with less than 10 flavors. But, as the demand for more flavors grew quickly, we began to create our own signature flavors that are still popular today. Several locations and several years after we started the business, we began providing other shaved ice businesses with the same tasty treat and great products that we were serving to our customers.

A snow cone is a dessert item usually made of compacted shaved ice flavored with a brightly colored sugary syrup, usually fruit-flavored. Variations include the “stuffed” snow cone, which has a layer of soft-serve vanilla ice cream inside. Some are served with a spoon, and some are meant to be eaten with the hands like an ice cream cone. Snow Cone History Samuel Bert of Dallas sold snow cones at the State Fair of Texas in 1919, and he invented a snow cone-making machine in 1920.
Bert was a fixture at the State Fair, selling his snow cones there (and selling his machines world-wide) until his death in 1984.
By the 1870s, the snowball’s popularity had risen to the degree that in the warm summer months, theaters would sell snowballs to keep their patrons cool. Because of this association with the theater, snowballs were thought of as an upper-class commodity. Signs in theaters instructing patrons to finish their snowballs before coming in to the second act are the earliest tangible evidence of snowballs.
In the theaters in Baltimore during the time hand shavers were used to shave the ice. Around the city, snowballs were served on newspaper, but in the classy theaters, butchers’ boats were used. In the 1890s, many people started to invent easier ways for snowballs to be made. In that decade, six patents for electric ice shavers were filed.
