The thatched-roof SnOasis is carefully monitored by loyal customers as the weather warms and they await the first snowball. SnOasis doesn’t have a website, but a quick look at its Facebook page shows the classic egg custard syrup and a snowball dripping with a Baltimore favorite, marshmallow. SnOasis’ snowballs have been named the Best in Baltimore by Baltimore City Paper several times. The line is often long, but the quality of the snowballs makes it worth the wait.
