Just in time for the hottest days of summer, Frank McCarron and Michelle Kobayashi are serving up genuine Hawaiian shave ice at Tropical Snow, at the corner of Valley Center Road & Cole Grade Road.
According to McCarron, “Michelle and I thought bringing shave ice to valley center would be a great idea, She was born and raised in maui, shave ice is common there and hard to find here. This is real Hawaiian shave ice. Definitely not a snow cone. The difference is the way the ice is actually shaved, not crushed. The flavor stays on top and slowly goes to the bottom, the perfect amount of sweetness. It’s so fine it absorbs the flavor.”
They have about 14 flavors, including jamaica, horchata and tamarindo . They are open 7 days a week ,unless they do an event. They have free cream toppings also, vanilla, coconut and banana.
