Hawaii Island Week: Big Island Shave Ice


All week long, KHON2’s Wake Up 2day and Living808 are airing a special series from the Island of Hawaii. Trini Kaopuiki went exploring and found the joys of a staycation on Hawaii’s largest island.

If you love shave ice, you need to know about Big Island Shave Ice. The popular shave ice wagon in Kawaihae on Hawaii Island is known for its traditional and not-so-traditional shave ice flavors.

According to owner Reggie Ignacio, their most popular shave ice are the halo halo and shave ice sundaes.

This family-owned business started nearly 60 years ago by Ignacio’s mother. According to Ignacio, his mother went into the plantation camps to serve the refreshing snack.

Ignacio says they are working on a second location, which will be at the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel. They hope to open in January 2016.
