When we visited Oahu they had a shave ice place that put ice cream at the bottom. It was one of those places that is really popular so you stand in line for 3 days just to get one. Chad LOVES ice cream and so I knew that to make the trip complete we would need to visit a shave ice place.
While wandering and shopping I looked down an "alley" and noticed a sign for a place and steered Chad over.
We were the only ones at the window but once they got started making our treats the line started to grow. People started commenting about how it had been on a couple of travel shows - and I just thought the name was fun to say :)
We sat down to eat and although I'm not Shave Ice Connoisseur; the ice was shaved to a snow like consistency (not hard crunchy pellets like on a sno-cone), the juice wasn't the syrupy sugar kind but actual fruit juice reduction/blend and the amount of ice cream at the bottom was perfect.
The wandering around in the hot sun for several hours MIGHT have pushed this over the top but I think it was the perfect ice-y treat.
