I had such a good experience there. Eric was very informative. The snowball that I had was wonderful and this is a great place to visit. There are many flavors to choose from and the one I had was great.

Baltimore snowball factory has so many choices and options to choose from. The hours are great 12 - 7 p.m. too! If you are looking for a way to cool down in Sarasota, this is the place to be!

We had to try it! I tried to custard (I believe it was) with the marshmallow, whatever was traditional from Baltimore, and guess what? It was great!

While on our way to St Armandas, we saw a sign advertising Snowballs and stopped. This quaint little shop had every kind of snowball flavor you could imagine. There were several sizes to choose from, with ample amount of flavoring added to make a enjoyable cooling hot day treat. We are from Maryland and snowballs are big here, so we... More

I often wondered why no one in FL had opened a snowball stand. Being from MD we were so happy to have crushed ice with flavoring in the hot summer months vs ice cream or froyo (it's so much more refreshing to me) so I was so happy when Eric decided to open his store front within 2 miles of...

28 years away from Baltimore we finally have authentic snowballs! Marshmallow and all the flavors we love! Always fun to catch up with others while you wait. There is always a hometown person or two there ready to chat it up. Thanks Eric for choosing Sarasota

Since we moved to Florida in 2005, we've been amazed by how hard it is to find a snowball here. When we lived in Maryland, especially Baltimore, there were quite a few snowball stands and my Aunt even had one at her home on Cecil Avenue in Woodlawn.

Being from Baltimore one of the things I really miss (besides good crab cakes) are snowballs. Thank you Eric for bring them to Sarasota, Florida. There is nothing like a refreshing snowball in the hot Florida summer. Our trips to Sarasota will always include a stop at Baltimore Snowball Factory. Please bring one to Brandon, FL!
