This shaved ice comes with more exotic flavors than sno cones. Hawaiian Ice, also known as Shave ice (not Shaved ice), is much different than a sno-cone, in that it is made by a small counter-top machine that shaves ice rather than grinding it like a sno-cone machine. The result is ice so fine that it rivals real snow! The snow is then placed in a bowl and drenched with tropical flavored syrups. Because the shaved ice is so soft and powdery, the syrup is held within it’s texture, versus settling to the bottom like traditional sno-cones. Since the syrup is absorbed into the snow, it must be eaten with a spoon instead of a straw.
