“Tasty dessert option in Kihei”
Review of Snow Factory

Snow Factory
Ranked #17 of 21 Dessert in Kihei
Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 August 2015

Not exactly shave ice, or ice cream or gelato, snow factory makes some sort of yummy ice milk+juice frozen conction that they shave and compliment with lots of tasty topping options.

The result is an absolutely delicious dessert!

While dessert is a bit pricey, the servings are big enough to share amongst 2 people. The biggest detractor at Snow Factory is the dining area. It is a bit dingy and sparsely decorated. The guy working there was very nice and our tasty desserts came out quickly

Shaved ice has been a family favorite treat for generations. Just last night we had a craving but most places in Kihei were closed by 7:00. Our son found Snow Factory online so we decided to try it. It's a small place in the corner of the mall with Longs Drugs. All I can say is you have to try it to believe it, there are no words to describe how much more tasty this snow is than ice squirted with sugar water. We tried many flavors but the taro was the surprise favorite. The only disappointment was when we found out we could not go back the next day because they are closed on Mondays.

I like shaved ice, but if you're looking for a different take on the traditional Hawaiian Shaved Ice, this is it The texture of the Snow is very fluffy and super-fine. Believe that the process is for the fruit and milk to be frozen into ice blocks before it is shaved, which ends up with a more consistent flavor (versus syrup being poured over ice). The Snow Factory shaving process is so different because it produces ice which is very fluffy and light. There are many flavors to choose from as well as that many toppings that can be added. But because the ice is already flavored, you really don't need to add a topping. Since finding this dessert, we have been back three times in the last week. So refreshing, light and tasty. We tried the pineapple, chocolate, taro, passion fruit, milk tea, coconut, mango and coffee. Some we had added toppings and others eaten just as-is. Recommend this treat if you are looking for a different take on a frozen treat.

I went twice on one day. Had the green tea and taro with mochi. Green tea was ok but taro was wonderful and so were the big chunks of mochi! Later on the evening I had lychee with condensed milk.... Soooo good! Flavours are so true! Then went on the last day in Maui. I had the halo halo. Tastes just like true filipino halo halo with all the fixings. Owner was somewhat personabal. I'd return for the item regardless of service bc their product is so good! I returned here more than Ululani's shave ice bc the location was closer to our condo!

Our second time having Snow. Our kids , like many kids, love sweets .
This should be a happy business ?! Selling desserts in a tourists-time ?

The staff, seemed like a owner , was a bit grumpy, looked angry actually .... and unkind to small children .
Our 3 kids took a bit of time to decide and asked questions, he said " look on the wall (poster) , is all there " . When they leaned on the counter (like kids do) , he said , " erh ...please read he sign ..."

I believe F & B , in today's world , is a "total business" - Food , ambience , service and added value is inter-related !

**always feel bad for unkind treatment to our kids . What about you ?
