Did You Know?
Shave ice found its way to Hawai`i through the migration of Japanese immigrants who arrived to work in the sugar cane plantations and pineapple fields. Using a block of ice, they shaved it akin to planing wood or with a machete, then drizzled various flavored juices or syrups over it. It became a favored refreshment in the hot, tropical climate, enjoyed by plantation workers on their sole day off – Sundays. As these immigrants transitioned away from plantations, they established family-run grocery stores, often featuring shave ice, which eventually became a commercial hit and a beloved tradition in Hawaiian culture, continuing to gain popularity over time.
