We are very excited to announce that the Sno-Bliz Online Exhibit is now live. The Online Exhibit is a a collection of Hansen’s Sno-Bliz memorabilia, including photographs, signs, articles, and video.
Hansen’s Sno-Bliz Tee-Shirts are back. Printed by local tee-shirt company Dirty Cost, they feature the Hansen’s logo (now with triple fleurs-des-lis flag) on a yellow background.
Can’t make it to Hansen’s this summer? You can buy the tee-shirts online through Dirty Coast’s Online Store.
We are happy to announce that the entirety of the main Hansen’s Sno-Bliz website has gone live. On it you can now find hours, directions, a list of flavors, and a brief history of the snoball stand.
The Online Exhibit is not live yet, but will be coming in the next few weeks.
Hansen’s was robbed last Friday at closing time. You can read details about it in the Times-Picayune article “Coldblooded character sticks up snowball stand”. Everyone is fine, just a little shaken.

It’s our first news post from our blog. We’re going to try to use this blog to provide news about goings on at Hansen’s, links to news articles about the business, interesting additions to the archive, etc.
Our webmaster, Allison, is also going to be using this space as part of a Capstone experience for the School of Information at the University of Texas Austin. The goal of the Capstone is two fold: 1. Create a website for Hansen’s Sno-Bliz and 2. Create a prototype of an online exhibit of Hansen’s Sno-Bliz memorabilia. The second part of this project is going to be the more extensive and difficult part, but hopefully the end will be rewarding.
