Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice

What is shave ice?
Shave ice was brought to Hawaii by the thousands of Japanese who migrated here to work in the sugar cane plantations and pineapple fields. The workers would take a block of ice and shave it as if to plane a block of wood (or using a machete), then pour different flavored juices or syrups on it. They enjoyed it as a refreshing break in the hot, tropical climate. In those days shave ice was sold only on Sundays, the only day off the plantation workers received. Before long the popularity of shave ice grew and soon it went commercial, becoming available in local grocery stores. The popularity has grown and continues to grow and now shave ice is considered a national treat! Ululani’s is by far the best shave ice on Maui and very available too, they have three locations in Lahaina, one in Kihei, one in Wailuku, and one in Kahului, so you are close to a location at all times!
