Shave Ice is one of Hawaii’s specialty treats that locals and visitors enjoy. It is a steady frozen dessert for many children growing up in Hawaii. When it is hot in the islands, this cold refreshing treat definitely cools you off and is a steady companion when beating the heat.  Shave ice or Hawaiian shave ice is an ice-based dessert made by shaving a block of ice. Similar to that of a snow cone, shave ice differs in that the ice is shaved rather than crushed. Flavored syrups are added to the shave ice which are absorbed by the snow-like ice. It can be served with or without ice cream at the bottom of the cup.  In addition, a sno cap of sweetened condensed milk can also be drizzled to the top.

There are over 60 flavors to choose from at the Waimea Location.  There are over 30 flavors to choose from at the Hanalei location.

Offering one of the most expansive choices of flavors on the island, some of JoJo’s Flavors include:

A Shave Ice is great with a scoop of mac nut or vanilla ice cream added to the bottom.

Publicized heavy during Former President Barack Obama’s presidency, eating shaved ice was always something he ate during his winter vacations to Hawaii.  However, Shaved Ice has been part of Hawaii’s history for many years and throughout the generations. Traces of its history to Japan, Shave Ice was brought to the Hawaiian islands by Japanese immigrants the late 1800’s.  Known as kaki-gori (Japanese term for sweetened Shaved Ice), the shave ice has become iconic in the islands. It is also to have origins from China as early as the 7th Century.

Popular local mom and pop stores continue their traditions on each Hawaiian island, still operating in their original locations. Generating even more business than ever before. Lines in shave ice stores can stretch past a half an hour.  Although there are many locations that you can get shave ice from, people wait for the experience of the original shave ice stands that have been long standing over the years.

Whether you are on the west side of the island or up on the north side, Jojo’s shave ice is there to satisfy your cravings.  Jojo’s shave ice can be found while driving to Polihale (westernmost point in the United States and farthest you can drive west on the island of Kauai) or Ke’e Beach (farthest you can drive North on the island of Kauai). Jojo’s Shave Ice is located in the centers of Waimea Town and Hanalei Town. The locations are great for people watching and meeting new people.  Jojo’s Shave Ice is the “original” place to get Shave Ice on the island.
