Sam’s SnoBall Paradise Review

A Great Choice For Summery Sweetness in Johnson City

A few weeks ago my niece, H, told me she had heard about a Snow Cone place in Johnson City that was supposed to be exceptional. We are always looking for new ways to celebrate summer so we made plans to meet over the weekend and check this place out. It was called Sam’s SnoBall Paradise and it is only minutes from the Johnson City Public Library which we frequent.


I picked up my Mom and T and I drove to meet H. We found a little snowcone truck along with two picnic tables complete with adorable straw umbrellas. There was already a line even though they had a few minutes left before they opened. Obviously, others had discovered this wonder of icy tastiness before we had. I watched as a man walked away with an actual pineapple which was serving as a giant cup for his flavor choice. And choices were available in abundance.


Sam’s SnoBall Paradise has so many flavors that I won’t list them all. Here is a sampler:

  • Bahama Mama
  • Blackberry
  • Black Cherry
  • Georgia Peach
  • Guava
  • Granny Smith Apple
  • Pineapple 🙂
  • Pink Bubble Gum
  • Strawberry
  • Tamarindo
  • Watermelon
  • Wedding Cake

They also offer frozen bananas dipped in chocolate, sugar-free options such as Limon, Strawberry, and Banana. They have cream flavors including my favorite, Dreamsicle. They also had delicious toppings and so much more. To see them all make a quick trip over there. You won’t regret it!


Pricing is very reasonable. I got T’s candy covered, rainbow icy and my Tamarindo for just $4.50 total! That is a deal. The flavors are bold and satisfying, especially on those too hot summer afternoons.

They are open Monday through Saturday from 1 to 9 and Sunday from 3 to 8.

The location is 809 S Roan Street in Johnson City, TN.

This is a great choice to get the family out of the house and enjoy something wonderful and affordable! We have added it to our favorite things about summer in the Tri-Cities! And we are willing to bet, if you give it a shot, it will make your list too!
