The first Friday in
The first Friday in March was a day we've had circled on our calendar since October. It's the day that Penguin's Snoballs on Little Creek, in Norfolk, opened back up again for the season. Penguin's was our summer 2016 hangout with friends, and when it closed it felt like that episode of 90210 when the Peach Pit is in danger. What would we do without it?
But luckily Penguin's is back and just as great as ever, with the same fluffy New Orleans shaved ice, the dozens of interesting flavors (red velvet cake? cherimoya?), and delicious toppings (condensed milk! Chili lime!) The staff is so friendly and will gladly let you taste test to find the perfect flavor combination. We were so surprised that they remembered us and all of our little munchkins (or maybe we just really did go there all. the. time.)
The one downside to sno-cones is always the stickiness so be sure to bring wipes when you go. And the one down side to Penguin's is that it's bordered by a busy road and parking lot, so make sure to bring a ring sling or stroller for young toddlers who are prone to running!
Oh, and another pro tip if you have young ones: clear strawberry flavor. Trust. You'll thank me later.
WELCOME BACK PENGUIN'S!
