Have you tried a Snow Booger? You can this summer on the Mississippi Gulf Coast when the locally owned and operated Snow Boogers food truck makes its way around the area.
You may not have heard of Snow Boogers yet, but they are a gourmet, artisan, outrageous specialty frozen dessert company, according to Joe Elizalde, who is co-owner of Snow Boogers along his wife.
Outrageous is a proper description of what they offer. Menu items include Mangonado and Strawberry Heaven. A traditional mangonado includes mango sorbet with a chamoy swirl – chamoy is a sauce made from pickled fruit – or you can step the mango up a notch with strawberry glaze and gummy bears. Strawberry Heaven includes strawberry sorbet, coconut ice cream, strawberry glaze, condensed milk, and cheesecake. These are just a few of their sorbet and snowball concoctions.
Elizalde said they have come to the Gulf Coast to bring something that “no one’s ever seen before” and this goes beyond their outrageous sized snowballs. Their specialty is sorbet, which is made in-house in Perkinston, Mississippi. Elizalde, who is originally from Texas and lived in Ocean Springs for 20 years, says they’re combing the Gulf Coast to see where they can expand and bring their mobile unit.
They like to bring the Snow Boogers truck to local shops and boutiques in the Jackson County area. Elizalde said they will often attend sales and grand openings to support these businesses and try to bring more people out to the events, helping the community as a whole.
“We love it here,” Elizalde said. “We love contributing to the community and just coming back and giving someone a good treat and a good experience.”
He said, so far, the response and support for Snow Boogers has been unbelievable. Now, they’re looking to grow responsibly and keep it local.
Snow Boogers is booked through July. You can find out where they will be on their Facebook page.
