Looking for information on \"Sno Ball\" desserts
I was cruising the Internet today and came across this quote on Wikipedia that peaked my interest.

"The first documented "shaved ice" dessert was made in 27 B.C.E. The Roman Emperor Nero sent slaves to collect snow from nearby mountains that he then flavored with a fruit and honey mixture"

This source is sighted with a modern source: Bell, Robert “The History of the Sno Cone.” Article Alley. 22 April 2009, and I have not had any luck finding the a historical source for this information.

I was wondering if anyone knew what the original source was and could point me in the right direction?

Thank you
