*Hawaiian Shave Ice*
With a couple hundred store fronts & trucks, Shave Ice (not shaved ice) can be found almost anywhere in the Hawaiian Islands. What is Shave Ice? Some compare it to snow cones which consist of ice ground into tiny chewable chips. Unlike snow cones, Shave Ice is so fine and fluffy that the flavors are absorbed into the ice rather than settling to the bottom of the cup. Every spoonfull is as delicious & flavorful at the bottom as it was at the top of the cup! Hawaiian Shave Ice has evolved since it first made it's appearance in Hawaii. We now have over 100 flavors to choose from as well as 8 additional toppings including ice cream, sweet azuki beans, snow cap (sweetened condensed milk) and li-hing mui powder. Our Shave Ice syrups are made with natural pure cane sugar and do not contain any artificial sweeteners. They are also available sugar free and some can be ordered lite for the low calorie lovers.

Halo-Halo, literally translated, means "mix-mix". It is a popular Filipino dessert or snack served in a cup that is sweet, creamy, and refreshingly cold. This dessert can be created traditional, special or gourmet. It traditionally consists of sweetened beans, coconut strings (macapuno), and coconut gel (nata de coco), jackfruit (langka), sweet yam (ube), and caramel sweetened plantains. This heavely mixture is topped with a generous serving of finely shaved ice and then drenched with Carnation evaporated milk. Mix it up before eating to get a load of goodies with every spoonfull. The Halo-Halo "Special" is capped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a sprinkle of pinipig. For those who prefer the gourmet Halo-Halo, flan and specialty ice cream such as ube, langka, or mango are also available for an additional charge. This is definitely not a treat you can sip through a straw!
Our Southern California Snow is popular among the hispanic community. We take our finely shaved ice, add to it a generous ladle of sweetened, all natural chunks of seasonal fruits in its own juice and add more shaved ice. These layers are topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, another ladle of fruit mix and finished off with a snow cap (sweetened condensed milk).
