Nandy’s Candy Snoballs [Jackson, MS]

Summer is right around the corner and I think the entire country is finally warmed up from a very long winter.  Mississippi is definitely hot already, but not yet unbearable.  I know it’s coming, though – the heat that keeps you indoors all summer or at the pool every day.

Nandy's Candy Snoballs - Jackson, MS - Right off Interstate 55, Northside Drive Exit so you can stop in when driving to NOLA or the gulf shore beaches!Our neighborhood pool recently closed its doors (great timing, sheesh) and is in limbo right now on who will take it over and what will happen with it.  So, it could be a long summer for us.  Fortunately, there are other things we can do to keep cool…like sprinklers in the backyard, water balloons, the splash pad at the outdoor mall just down the road, etc. etc.

Nandy's Candy Snoballs - Jackson, MS - Right off Interstate 55, Northside Drive Exit so you can stop in when driving to NOLA or the gulf shore beaches!About two weeks ago, I found out about another idea to cool us off this summer.  A local Jackson, Mississippi candy store, Nandy’s Candy, not only offers homemade chocolates and other sweets, but also has a seasonal stand for their homemade Snoballs!  I took Judah and Simon to check this place out and was very excited about the variety of fun flavors offered!

Nandy's Candy Snoballs - Jackson, MSNandy’s Candy Snoball Stand is right off the Interstate 55.  So even if you do not live in the area and are traveling maybe to the gulf shore beaches or NOLA, I definitely recommend stopping off the Northside Drive exit for a refreshing break of a Nandy’s Candy Snoball.  There is also a Starbucks and a Whole Foods Market at this exit, right next to Nandy’s Candy if you’re looking for some caffeine or lunch, too.

  2. I know where you can go if it gets too hot this summer……

  3. I don’t know how long I’ve been subscribing to your blog without realizing you’re a fellow Mississippi blogger! It’s always awesome to “meet” someone online who’s also close to home in real life! Anywho… next time we’re in Jackson, I’m definitely going to take the kids to Nandy’s Candy!
