This is an important service announcement about the dangers of Hawaiian shave ice. A block of ice is shaved to create a ball of fine snow. Syrup or refreshing juices are poured on top. Unlike snow cones whose ice is crushed, the shaved ice absorbs every lick of flavor. The juicy snow melts slowly down onto a scoop of macadamia nut ice cream. The result is an irresistible, creamsicle combination. It’s a good thing that I left Hawaii when I did. Maybe there’s a rehab facility in L.A.
