To be completely honest with you, I don’t know if I believe that there’s such a thing as “a bad snow cone.” On a hot enough Louisiana afternoon, even the most average snow cone is still pretty wonderful. But some snow cones are better than others, and The Sno Fox (2225 Airline Drive, Bossier City) serves some of the best that I’ve ever had.

Owner Brett Misenheimer may not be a chef, but some of the snow cone flavors that he and his team have introduced since opening in April of 2019 are downright hip. The best flavors that I sampled were Midnight Dream (blueberry, lemon and lavender), Sunset Tango (orange, vanilla creme and ginger) and Yellow Mellow (lemon, vanilla creme and chamomile). These signature flavors and others are all made using real dairy, real sugar, and syrups that Misenheimer crafts in small batches using real fruits and no artificial flavors. The ice itself is terrific, more on the shaved, fluffy side than the crunchy.
You can also get traditional snow cone flavors like tutti frutti and cotton candy, though – in my opinion – you’d be missing out. There are also limited-edition flavors as well as sugar-free options.
“It’s just a process of trial and error, taste-testing and tweaking each recipe until it’s outstanding,” Misenheimer said. “We’ve been getting great feedback so far.”
Misenheimer knows that fans of old-school snow cones may require some convincing – especially when confronted with flavors like the delicious Limenero (lime and habanero pepper) – and he’s happy to share free samples with anyone who’s curious. The Sno Fox only sells one size of cone, and cones are $4 for signature flavors and $3 for classic flavors like cotton candy and blue raspberry. So far, Misenheimer said, the signature flavors make up the bulk of his sales.
The Sno Fox is currently open every day from 1 p.m. until 8 p.m. There is plenty of parking and picnic tables are available. Dogs are welcome, and Misenheimer and his team are happy to make bone broth snow cones for any four-legged friends.
