Bubbies is popular for it's mochie ice cream and their home made ice cream. I visited their store in Manoa and it's a place I will frequently visit. The ice cream: - Flavors are out of this world! Not you're ordinary stuff. I had Oreo and it's not your typical "cookies and cream". It's way different and awesome! The Mochie:... More

We buy the packaged Bubbies near our home on the East Coast of the mainland, but couldn't resist a trip to Bubbies when in Oahu. Great mochi desserts and great selection of flavors I can't get anywhere else.

I had tried Mochi in another format but didn't like it. The mochi ice cream was real good. I didn't try the regular ice cream, but my son assures me it is excellent.

The best mochi ice cream ever!!! the mochi is so soft and thin and the ice cream is good too. I like how many different flavors they have and flavors I can never get in CA. after I ordered my 6 mochi I realized there are special flavors!!! For example, gingerbread and pumpkin pie (holiday flavors) - ahhhhh! I wished... More

I had heard that the best Mochi Ice Cream I would taste would be at Bubbies. I have to say I can buy better from a local supermarket here in the UK. It was good but it didn't live up to the expectation I was anticipating. Lots of flavours to choose from and reasonably priced.

Mochi. Yum. Bubbles. Super yum! We happened to come across Bubbles following snorkeling at Hanauma Bay on our last day in Hawaii. Yes, Bubbles is sold in various supermarkets, but to get the full essence and experience, go visit an actual Bubbles Mecca. W/plenty of flavors to choose from, we basically said "to heck w/lunch!" as we ordered 12 mochi... More

A large, perhaps overwhelmingly large, variety of menu choices. A bit intimidating during your first visit, especially given their sometimes controversial names. We ordered a Multiple Orgasms, which was very tasty along with a few mochi. The Multiple Orgasms is a multi-layered slice of ice cream cake that should be shared. It was our first-time trying mochi and we were... More

I try to go here every time I'm in the area. Unfortunately, my sweet tooth hasn't been the same for a while--have to watch that sugar intake! This place is totally worth it. Food: Awesome mochi ice cream choices. Even better cakes. Definitely try the Come Here Little Girl piece of cake. The ice cream they have to scoop is... More

We stopped by on the way back from snorkeling and what a pleasant surprise. Loved the homemade ice cream, Mochi was different but still very good and the milkshakes were to die for!! Crazy cramped parking lot but well worth it!!
