Shave Ice is a must when visiting Hawaii. JoJo's had a great selection. Shave Ice is ice cream with a shaved ice covering. Great for the sweet tooth.

On your way to the canyon or on your way back don't miss out on the best shaved ice you won't be disappointed.They use the best syrup because they make it themselves.

This was my third visit to Hawaii, and I don't know how, but this was my first experience having a Shave Ice and I couldn't have picked a better place than JoJo's. We stopped here after our drive thru Waimea Canyon and it was a...More

JoJo's was my personal favorite, we went there a couple of times and all their flavors were amazing with the exception of the coffee one- I wasn't a big fan of that one. The macadamia nut ice cream is a definite must!

Way more than I expected. I felt like a little boy when I got my mammoth treat. Not to be confused with a snow cone.

My friends and family raved about shave ice, and said that I had to have some while I was honeymooning in Kauai. I read that JoJo's was the best so I had to try it out. I have to say, I wasn't impressed. Maybe that's...More

Definitely do the Rainbow with the macadamia nut ice cream on the bottom - you won't regret it! Think about sharing (it really is as big as your head).

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!
