I always thought Shave(d) Ice was 'just' a snow cone... OH MY GOODNESS, it is Not...it is SO much better...ESPECIALLY if you get it from Local Boy(s). They pack the ice and give free toppings... Packing the ice actually keeps it IN the cup, not floating all around like uncontrolled snowflakes. And their flavors are yummy, I loved Tiger's Blood... More

Some say Ululani is better but I tried Local Boys in Kihei and Lahaina locations. You will wait but you won't be disappointed. Be sure to get ice cream on the bottom and cream on the top of your shave ice. Get exotic or go old school with your flavor combinations. It doesn't matter how you build the shave ice... More

If my husband had his way, we'd be checking in with the Local boys for shave ice three times a day. Not that he'd have to twist my arm much, they enough flavors and combinations to try something new every day for years! Don't hesitate to ask for the last recipe, you really can't go wrong. And definitely take the... More

Stopped by after a filling diner on a hot night in Maui. Ordered a medium ( big baby?) with vanilla ice cream and 3 flavors: mojito, piña colada, and sharks blood( strawberry coconut). I really liked it and thought it was refreshing. The syrups weren't too sweet and the ice was smooth not crunchy. I would have liked a little... More
