Recently, Jonathan and I went on a trip to Maui and Kauai as a “honeymoon we never got”. Of course, immediately after having set eyes on this Shave Ice location five minutes from our hotel, we pulled over and ordered our favorite flavors: Pineapple + Coconut!
As self labeled (jokingly) Hawaiian Shave Ice connoisseur’s, Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice is a strong 5 stars in our not so long, shave ice book.
Not only does it provide amazingly delicious shave ice, it also is:
*Gluten Free friendly
Personally, I ordered the classic coconut + pineapple with coconut shavings…COCONUT SHAVINGS, YES!! and it was, what I might say, better than our favorite and local, Rainbow House. *GASP*
The Science behind Ululani’s
Ululani’s syrup’s are made using 100% pure cane sugar (which the island is famous for growing), premium purees, natural fruit juices/ extracts and best of all, local ingredients.
And might I add, they also have perfect ice. If you love shave ice, chances are you probably know exactly what I’m talking about. If not, it means that the ice texture is near perfect. Not too crunchy, not too soft. Just right.
Ululani’s offers a huge assortment of flavors to choose from with a rule of up to three flavors to combine. Some of their out of the ordinary flavors include: Calamansi Lime, Guava, Hoku, Li Hing Mui, Liliko’i, Lychee, Matcha Green Tea, Pickled Mango, Tamarind, Thai Tea, Tiger’s Blood, Wedding Cake and Wet Lemon Peel.
Along with their out of the ordinary flavors, they also offer more common flavors. Take a look:
Ample flavors, ample options and relatively cheap shave ice. Does it get any better?
Since having visited Maui, I believe Ululani’s has changed their size and price menu. If you have an updated price menu, please feel free to comment below. 🙂
Wait, Shave Ice locations receive awards? The answer is, yes…I didn’t know that either.
Ululani’s has received so many awards and praise for their shave ice that they have gone ahead and made it a tab on their menu. Talk about excellent shave ice! From TripAdvisor to World News, and even Four Season Magazine, this shave ice location is the mecca for shave ice so definitely do not forget to stop by. Not only that, but they also have gone as far as drilling holes into their picnic tables in which guests can place their shave ice cups into and not have to worry about holding it in their hands. Now you have BOTH hands with which to enjoy your delicious shave ice!
Friendly faces, great prices and world famous shave ice – definitely be sure to stop at Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice while in Maui. We personally stopped by the Kihei location, but they do have five other locations throughout the island. Trust me, your low key self proclaimed, shave ice connoisseur, YOU WON’T REGRET IT! 😀
