Back in 2012, when the company changed its name, it was the Hawaiian shave ice that made Aloha, ‘ALOHA’. Offering just 5 flavors at the time, the company simply wanted to offer its mini-golf customers a refreshing ‘snow-cone’ or ‘icee’ treat to battle against the summer heat. The response was tremendous.
Within 2 seasons the Aloha service window featured a huge 6’ x 8’ menu board featuring over 50 flavors of shave ice. Flimsy paper ‘cones’ gave way to Styrofoam cups that maintained the ice longer in the summer heat. New flavors like sours of every type, bubble gums, cotton candies-as well as all your favorites like tiger blood, blue raspberry, and pina colada were added. You loved it, and we have been doing it better and better ever since!
The shave ice is also a great addition to a birthday party or group outing you may have in mind. These are not your typical ‘snow cones’. Although we do not use ice cream or cream toppings, the finely shaved ice packs explosive flavor that can only be described in words as a Luau Party for your mouth! Over 50 explosively-flavored syrups are offered hand-made, produced fresh daily using only 100% pure cane sugar. We know ingredients like high-fructose corn syrup and shelf-life preservatives are to be avoided by you or your kids. So we keep this OFF of Aloha’s menu board. We also offer sugar-free syrups made with Stevia natural sweetener, upon request. Coupled with the smooth fluffy ice, shaved to order, and you are now enjoying the delicious treat that Aloha’s loyal customers have been craving for all winter long!
We are the first shave ice stand in the St. Louis area to open up in the spring (March 1 or earlier), and we are the last to close each season (Halloween and beyond). For 2017, Aloha customers can get their Hawaiian shave ice even quicker with the addition of a new double service window. Mahalo!
