Ah, shaved ice – one of the finer delicacies in life. The origins of shaved ice go all the way back to Roman Emperor Nero in 27 B.C. That’s a long time ago! Nero sent his worker bees to the nearby mountains to collect snow, which he then brought back to flavor with a fruit and honey mixture.
Shaved ice is ice that is finely shaved through a blade. It’s not chunks of ice. It’s not crushed ice. It’s not an icee or a slushie. It’s, simply put, ice that is shaved. The surface area of the shaved ice allows for the delicious flavoring to really soak in and give it the best consistency. Not too compact, not too fluffy – JUST RIGHT!
Now shaved ice can be called all sorts of different things and there are some variances due to either how it’s prepared or what region it hails from. Kona Ice of Findlay knows a thing or two about shaved ice.
With Kona Ice of Findlay, you get to flavor your own Kona shaved ice. That’s right! Our very own Flavorwave makes that possible. You’ll get your Kona from the window of the truck and then off you go to choose as many flavors as you want! Flavor to your heart’s content. In short…you do you – Kona style!
Be Good, Do Good, For Good is not just a motto for Kona Ice, it is how we do business. It is our intent to provide a safe and sensational experience for each and every customer. And frequently that comes in the form of bringing our products and service to our community via fundraisers.
We didn’t become the successful, franchised shaved ice company we are today by just having the most delicious shaved ice around. It certainly helped… but the heart and soul of Kona Ice is giving back to our communities. We can help local organizations and non-profits reach their financial goals while serving up smiles with a fun and sweet Kona Ice experience. Shaved ice is what we do – giving back is who we are.
Book us for your next fundraiser and we promise it’ll be the most fun you’ve ever had raising money in your whole life!
