“delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

The flavors here looked so delicious that we had a hard time deciding. The toasted cocoanut was almost as good as my favorite Kona Coffee icecream!

“Very tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

We are always trying to find local, home made , authentic fare when on vacation, and this fit the bill. Rich, creamy ice cream. Nice selection of flavors, in a quaint roadside location... once you find it! It is off the beaten track, right in the port area of Hilo, not near all the rest of the tourist/downtown neighborhood. But it is well worth the extra effort.

“get this wherever you can find it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

One of the better ice creams on the planet plus it's made locally. I particularly like ginger and green tea flavors and sometimes get a cone or cup with one of each. Several restaurants in Hilo serve this ice cream so it is available at more places than the Kalanianaole store.
