Leaving the beach, sun kissed with salty hair, there is only one way to end the day, with Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice! Located in Lahaina, Kahului, Kihei, Maui Lani, The Hyatt, Paia, and a franchise in Kailua Kona (Big Island). Its safe to say, this is a MUST when visiting Maui.
What makes this Shave Ice so special? First off, they ensure their ice is made with 100% ultra-purified water. They have perfected the finest shaved Shave Ice I have ever had. Smoother than snow. All their sugars are made with 100% pure cane sugar. They make 100% of their syrups with their unique recipes. They have over 50 different flavors you can choose from. You then can choose from all different sides to add in, including Maui Made Roselani Ice Cream. IT’S NOT A SNOW CONE. I promise, you have never had anything like this!
There are five easy steps to ordering to make it a easy and smooth experience. First, how many are you ordering? Second, which size do you want? There are three different sizes, Keiki (kids size), The Ulu, and Nui, the large. Third, do you want ice cream or Azuki beans? For ice cream, the most common flavors are Vanilla, Macadamia Nut, or Haupia. (Haupia is coconut) Step number four, FLAVORS! You can choose up to three flavors or one combination. Lastly, step five, you can choose if you would like to add any toppings. (snow cap, toasted coconut, fresh mochi, haupia cream, li hing etc.)
I have never had a flavor I didn’t enjoy but I would have to say the fruit flavors are my absolute favorite. My go to Shave Ice order would be the ULU size, its perfect for one person. I get three flavors, mango (it’s a must), guava, and passion fruit. Then I add the Macadamia Nut Ice Cream. They put the ice cream at the very bottom, so don’t forget about it. It makes the juice extra ONO at the very end. Then I normally add mochi to the top!
There is often a line, because it’s that great, but don’t let that stop you, just know, its worth the wait! No matter what location you visit, you find ALOHA, passion, great quality, and the most delicious experience on Maui.
