IT’S NOT JUST ANY OL’ SHAVE ICE, & IT’S FAR FROM A SNOW CONE. IT’S HOPA SHAVE ICE--ALL NATURAL, HOMEMADE, REAL--A TASTE OF PURE ALOHA IN A BOWL. AT UNCLE CLAY’S HOUSE OF PURE ALOHA WE SPECIALIZE IN CRAFTING HAWAII’S MOST ICONIC SNACK TO CULINARY PERFECTION.
OUR ORIGINAL SYRUPS ARE HOMEMADE WITH QUALITY ALL-NATURAL INGREDIENTS LIKE FRESH HAWAIIAN FRUITS, FRUIT PUREES, & NATURAL CANE SUGAR. AT HOPA, WE’VE MADE A VOW TO BEING REAL: NO ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS, NO ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS, NO ARTIFICIAL COLORS, NO ARTIFICIAL ANYTHING! AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, WE SOURCE HAWAII-GROWN OR HAWAII-MADE INGREDIENTS – DOESN’T GET MORE LOCAL & ONO THAN THAT!
We use only the finest and most pure Hawaiian water that is exactingly chilled and frozen, then meticulously thawed to the perfect state to be shaved in to flakes of love and joy!
ALL-nATURAL Syrups & TOPPINGS
We go all-natural with real fruits and the highest-quality ingredients we can find. With great care, we blend up our syrups in-house and use them almost as fast as we can make them. Our syrups are sweetened from natural fruit and natural cane sugar.
Our mochi is homemade every day, every single piece by hand!
LOCAL HAWAIi-MADE Ice Cream
Our co-producer, the Tropical Dreams Ice Cream Company has manufactured gourmet ice cream on Hawaii Island for over 25 years. Using local cream and other locally-sourced ingredients, Tropical Dreams is the only ice cream company in Hawaii with the "Seal of Quality" from the State of Hawaii Department of Agriculture.
Tropical Dreams is considered a “super-premium” ice cream. It is handmade with cream containing 18% butterfat and a low overrun. This means that less air is mixed in during the freezing process. The result is a true gourmet ice cream that is dense and very rich tasting.
