Saw in 101 Things to Do on Maui and gave it a try. This is a very refreshing very inexpensive treat. Evidently a favorite of local residents because we saw people with large cups. We had both flavors available. I liked pineapple best. Husband liked strawberry best.

Grew up eating this sherbert. When ever we went to Kahului Mall at that time, it was one of the stops needed to go to before going home. Now it is stopping at Maui Mall before catching a flight To pick up the quart size packs. The flavors are strawberry and pineapple that are just so creamy and so deliciously... More

I prefer strawberry over pineapple. (It is a snack shop.) I also like to put guri guri in a cold cola.

i recently had a chance to visit a childhood favorite of mine. Tasaka Guri Guri. Even though I grew up eating this refreshing treat, I don't often go in to have a scoop. Tasting the cold creamy goodness that is made fresh daily, brought back memories of their original shop located in the Old Kahului Shopping Center. Enjoy!

This is my new favorite sweet spot to take the kids.....Located in the Maui Mall in Kahului, right next to the movie theatre, pet shop, and Fun Factory!!! Great sherbert / ice cream concoction doled out with amazing speed by the professional scooper at the counter...Not a tourist trap, definitely for the locals.....four scoops for $2.35!!!! Gotta love this place......

My 7 year old took one bite and spit it out, said it tasted like Tamiflu, and I'm sorry to say that he was right. I was still glad I tried it. There was a little bit of a line and it came highly recommended, so I know this is a local favorite. I still recommend trying it if you... More

Another hole in the wall shop on one of the corners of Maui Mall. 2 flavors are offered: strawberry or pineapple. Pick one or do a combo of both. They're both tasty. It gets scooped into a dixie cup and you eat it with a wooden spoon. If you want to try something that's local to the island, getting some... More

The perfect blend of Ice Cream and Sherbet. The Tasaka Guri Guri shop is just a little hole in the wall shop with a daily line out the door.
