Stopped by driving back from Waimea Canyon. Shaved Ice was good. Enjoyed slightly better ones in Oahu and Maui. Recommend the Macadamian nut ice cream with the cream topping. Pretty good.

Get the small size and share - these are HUGE!!! Local with macadamia nut ice cream at the bottom is delicious.

We drove by and saw the friendly looking little house. I wasn't disappointed that we stopped! They provide many different flavours. The staff was very friendly and sizes are huge, although I just had a "small" one. It was enough to share for the two...More

There were great flavors but the smallest size is what you see in the pictures below. I wish they had a smaller option. I shared with my son since it was so large.

We cracked up that it's called "Shave" Ice instead of "Shaved" Ice. But it is really refreshing and the treats are huge with lots of different flavors. A Kauai "must!"

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!
