The Shave Ice From This Mouthwatering Hawaii Shop Is So Worth The Wait

If there were to be only one dessert associated with Hawaii, it would be shave ice. 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. And while you’ll find shave ice shops across the Hawaiian Islands, today, we’re sharing with you the most popular shop.

Address: 66-087 Kamehameha Highway, Haleiwa, HI 96712
