Updated flavors (2014)!

Strawberry & Lime. Mmm.
I finally found a Hawaiian/finely shaved ice (aka "SHAVE ICE" -- not "SHAVED ICE") in the Fresno area! I can't tell you how happy I am. Just ask Grace how many times I've talked about shave ice (not snow cones--there's a huge difference). I've tried shave ice all over the place and only a few have the soft SHAVE ice (the rest have ice that breaks your teeth). The syrups from Lolo are delicious and not too sweet or fake-tasting, and they come from Hawaii, which is the place that inspired the owners to start up this shave ice business. My dad, brother, and I were at a basketball tournament and bought several cups of shave ice on both a Saturday and Sunday last month. Soo goooood. As a bonus, the people working inside were really friendly and helpful, and the interior looked clean. I might have to track down Lolo wherever they go. I ate more from them another day at a car show. I'll mix the pictures together here from different visits.

Root Beer! So good! Perfect. Not too sweet and it tastes just like root beer.

Green tea (good but couldn't taste too much 'cause I was distracted by the Dreamsicle) & Dreamsicle (like a 50/50 bar)

Banana & Pineapple (really good together and alone!)

Strawberry & Grape - Both perfectly sweet

Lime & Melon (Honeydew)

Lime & Grape - YUM

Ling Hing Mui (kinda like watermelon or strawberry Jolly Rancher)

Cinnamon (Red Hots) & Lemon

Vanilla + Dreamsicle. Goood combination.

Vanilla + Dreamsicle from the Vanilla side.

Guava. I usually HATE guava-flavored things, so I didn't think I'd like this, but I did! For some reason it reminded me of Pixie Sticks.
Red hots + apple! Tasty!

Sour Apple - In my opinion perfectly sour vs. sweet.

Lolo's was a vendor at a fundraiser my service organization had over the weekend and it was simply delicious. They are some of the kindest people I have ever met and their shaved ice is excellent! You should call yourself lucky if you get a chance to have Lolo's shaved ice. My favorite: cappuccino with condensed milk. Yummy!
