This is still the best ice cream I have ever had. One of my favorites is the mac nut white chocolate ginger. Another is the Kona Mud pie. I go several times on one vacation.

It was warm, decided to try it out, anywhere there's a line is a good place to try. The Shave Ice are Ono, any flavor, make sure you Snow Cap it, they pour Condensed Milk over it. And the young man was very nice. The prices you can't beat, for the 4 of us was around $12, great!

Next to Ulululani's Shave Ice on Maui this is the next best thing. Many flavours to choose from and the shave ice was very good. There is another shave ice place nearby which we tried first and were dissatisfied so when we turned the corner and found Anuenue's shave ice and ice cream we had to stop in and it... More

If you're staying along the Kohala coast, this place is worth the effort of driving up from Waikoloa, Mauni Kea, Puako, or anywhere else along this stretch of highway. Tucked away in a worn-out strip mall, it provides an excellent, cooling respite on a hot day. There's several dozen flavors from which to choose; I gravitate towards the more tropical... More

From an rather unassuming storefront, you will receive what will be one of the very best ice creams you will ever have! Have not tried the shave ice (yet), but the mud pie, lillikoe and Tahitian vanilla are simply sublime. Do not be fooled the simple storefront and lack of seating. Sit in your car and endulge!

Stopped by after lunch for shave ice. Very affordable and the best shave ice I've tried on this island. Try POG and Pineapple, it's magical. Two in our group didn't love it as much as the rest of us and would give Anuenue four stars. They preferred the shaped ice version from another place. There is only one employee working... More

Just a little hole in the wall but worth stopping for. Very friendly staff to help you make a decision. Ice cream in the middle of your shave ice - no better way to beat the heat. Messy, yup - but so good!

What more need be said than, huge portions of delightful, light shave ice, in more flavors than Crayola has colors? Wallet-friendly and just minutes north of the pricey resort-area establishments. Careful though, it might become habit forming.

Stopped here and had the best shaved ice my wife and I have ever eaten. Great flavors-citrus mint, lavender lemonade plus Hawaiian fruits plus old standbys. Don't miss it of you enjoy shaved ice!

I'm addicted to the shaved ice-bubblegum flavor is fantastic. They also have ice cream and they will combine it with the ice if you prefer.
