Snow Cone Syrups

I got this set of hawaiian shaved ice's snow cone syrups upon the kids' request...and guess what, the big boy (hubby) also likes it, cherry being his favorite flavor! Stepd's fave is the blue raspberry...I just ordered two sets of 3-flavor packs to replenish cherry and blue raspberry flavors.

Why hawaiian shaved ice brand? It got the best reviews on amazon.com...the other brands apparently are not packed with real flavors. We were not disappointed.

This set includes:
Root Beer
Pina Colada
Tiger's Blood (whatever that is!)
Blue Raspberry

UPDATE 9-5-09: During one pool party celebrating my older son's birthday, my kids had fun showing it off to friends and they all had a blast making their snow cones. Today, when celebrating his birthday with relatives, my SIL and her kids had fun making snow cones and asked me where I got the machine and the syrups. This is one of the best fun food stuff to make during summer!


  1. my daughter and son would surely love this!

  2. Hi Rose,
    I am so sure they will! They will oggle at the machine and the syrups as you prepare them! Then later on they will do it themselves.

  3. the kids would love having this set too! i like the 2 in 1 cup!:)

  4. Even my SIL and her kids had fun this afternoon with these! She was asking me where I got the machine and the syrups!

  5. Hi Manang,

    Great post, these syrups aren't sold here in Hawaii, though this company looks like they're from here. You do need to try putting a scoop of vanilla ice cream inside your ice shave or shave ice as we call it here. Strawberry is the classic flavor which all of us start off with. The condensed milk on top is also popular. One thing the website doesn't mention is adzuki beans inside with the ice cream as well. Adzuki beans are the beans used to make the An filling in manjus. It's an acquired taste, but if you're adverturous you might enjoy it.
