Posing outside Shirokiya (Ala Moana Shoping Center)
with my snow ice dessert from The Juice Factory
Whenever possible, Hubby and I try to have a “date day.” This past Friday, we decided to go to Ala Moana Shopping Center for window shopping which, of course, invariably results in unplanned purchases — like the Adidas hat I’m wearing. (Purchased at Lids and embroidered on the back with “champuru.”)
Our last stop is always Shirokiya, where I pick up bentos and Japanese confections (mochi, dorayaki, etc.) to go. If Hubby is with me, we also hit The Juice Factory stand just before we exit so that he can get his favorite coffee boba (bubble drink). I noticed that they had “snow ice” on the menu. Hula Boba also had an offering called snow ice and I wondered if it was the same thing. So, I ordered one with azuki topping and found that it’s very similar. So, now I have my own favorite thing to get on my way out of Shirokiya!
