The Ultra-Indulgent Dessert Creation At Masumoto’s Shave Ice Will Drive Your Sweet Tooth Wild

Ah, Shave Ice: the quintessential Hawaiian treat. Not only is shave ice the perfect snack for a quick sugar rush after a day spent at the beach, but it’s one treat that’s pretty much exclusive to the Aloha State. You see, shave ice and snow cones are not the same thing — the consistency of true shave ice is that of newly fallen snow, not the granular and crunchy ice so many are used to. While you’ll find shave ice shops across the islands, there’s no better place to indulge than Matsumoto’s, which not only serves up the most extravagant shave ice we’ve ever seen but is perhaps the most famous shave ice spot in the state. 

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Matsumoto Shave Ice is open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, visit their website or follow them on Facebook. So, tell us, what’s your favorite shave ice flavor combination from Matsumoto’s?
