Life Should Be Sweet

Meet 3 Local Entrepreneurs Enriching the Lives of Kids With Their Creations

A Corden-Bleu-trained culinary enthusiast, Matt Ernest of Sneaux Kones makes snow cones an unforgettable experience by making his own syrup flavors from scratch, creating custom tasty concoctions and using the very best New Orleans-style shaved ice. While most snow cone establishments close at the end of summer, Matt knows that Sneaux Kones stay sweet in and out of summer heat and will start offering tasty fall flavors soon. Have an event coming up, like a birthday party or VBS? Call Matt!
