Just forget everything you learned about shaved ice, aka snow cone from your childhood ice cream truck days. JoJo's Shave Ice is not a snow cone, it actually tastes like snow ( the white fluffy stuff that falls from the sky in winter months). With...More

A real treat after a hot day. Very generous and tasty. Next time will try the shave snow or the combo.

The best shaved ice I’ve ever had. I thought the cream on top and ice cream underneath would be a deal breaker, but it’s what made the frozen treat so delicious. Pretty large serving size for a small. I’d recommend sharing.

This is no "snow cone" the ice is absorbs the flavors wonderfully and is not hard and they put ice cream at the bottom (as if they needed to make this even more delicious). There are several flavors to choose from and I would highly...More

Having had the opportunity to travel many times to Hawaii and visit various islands we have always loved getting shaved ice. It is a Hawaii tradition for us. On our most recent trip to Kauai, we had the great opportunity to visit JoJo’s Shave Ice....More

We sampled many different Shave Ice locations while on our recent vacation. All were good, but JoJo's was the best. Their specials were delicious! (For some reason - none of the other companies could ever get our order right.) I highly recommend JoJo's!

Of course some will say all shave ice is the same but we truly enjoy JoJo’s the best. We plan to go back before we leave the island.

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!
