Even in the face of repeated vandalism, Fluffy’s Sno-Balls is giving back to Long Beach

In May, Long Beach became the home of a snow-cone storefront that is like no other locally. Fluffy’s Sno-Balls brings a taste of New Orleans right to Long Beach. 

While the sno-balls are a classic that have been a hit locally, this unique business has faced repeated adversity. Not the typical adversity for new businesses trying to get attention and customers—instead, this new business has been repeatedly vandalized.

On this week’s episode of “The Word” podcast, Fluffy’s Sno-Balls owners Kevyn and Darren Lee-Wellington discuss the impacts of the vandalism and if repeat attacks will drive them out of Long Beach.

You can experience Fluffy’s Sno-Balls seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at 1208 Long Beach Blvd. Follow Fluffy’s Sno-Balls on Instagram here.
