Is it even summer if you don't get a snoball at Nandy's Candy?

Nandy's Candy - 1220 East Northside Drive #380

Known for their icy snoballs perfect for beating the summer heat, this vintage candy store is perfect for all ages. You're sure to find your dream flavor combination with syrup flavors that range from classic cherry to wedding cake.

Nandy's Candy serves up New Orleans-style snoballs, meaning the ice is finely shaved to make each bite light and fluffy, as opposed to a traditional snow cone that features coarse and crunchy ice pebbles. Although you can pick your own flavor(s), Nandy's menu features popular flavor combinations such as the Olaf, flavored with blue cotton candy and marshmallow syrups; shock top, with margarita and polar punch flavors; or even JSU Tiger, with blueberry and pina colada.
