There are many, many shaved ice places to choose from, but JoJo's uses all natural ingredients not corn syrup to flavor. We had the strawberry, banana, vanilla (which was blue...so our shaved ice was a beautiful red, white and blue). Three of us enjoyed one...More

At least that’s what we read and tha s what we experienced. No other place has come close to stacking up (yes, we’ve tried many). Great but not overwhelming selection of flavors and combinations. Their Mac nut ice cream as a bottom is the best....More

It’s just big and delicious!!! Gotta have it every time we come to Kauai! The macadamia nut ice cream that you get at the bottom is so good with the melted shaved ice with the fruity flavor! I like the banana, strawberry and vanilla mix...More

So far, probably the best of the three shave ice's I've had while over here. This tine it was banana colada, blue raspberry, blue hawaiian and rootbeer. Interestingly, as I slowly ate through this one, it didn't turn in to hard little ice bits. Instead,...More

JoJo's is another "must-stop" when visiting the south shore are of Kauai. There is always a line, but the reward is worth the wait. Once you've decided which super snowy delight you want, step inside the brightly colored store to order. Our favorites are the...More

The shave ice was ok but nothing special. I like the one in poipu more. If you are nearby and want shave ice you can give it a try but don't drive just to eat there as you will be disappointed

Our friends raved about JoJo's after they visited Kauai and told us that we had to go. It was an absolutely delicious experience! There are tons of different flavor combinations and there's a menu of preset combinations. We got the #4 (haupia) and #9 (coffee)...More

OK OK It isn't ice cream, but on a hot day very refreshing. They also make shakes. We really enjoyed our first shave ice.

We are the original JoJo's! Although we have expanded with a second location in Hanalei, our goal has remained the same - to offer the ultimate in shave ice on Kauai! We don't use commercially made syrups that most of the others buy. Instead we carefully make our own syrups with a lot less sugar but even more flavor. No corn syrup. Only pure cane sugar and some of the freshest Hawaiian flavors. Combine this with our JoJo's "da secret sauce" i.e. homemade creams, countless flavor combinations/add-on's, one of the greatest shave ice machines and you've got unmatched fluffy shave ice! In addition, we are committed to giving half of our profits to Makanalani, a camp for less privileged youth right here on the Island! We love our community just as much as they love us! Come in today and see why our shave ice is a local and tourist favorite! Mahalo!
