Prepare to treat yo’ self! June 18 is National Splurge Day and from noon to 9 p.m. Shave It will be celebrating by providing free Blue Hawaiian shave ice treat, one of the local favorites. This ice treat consists of Blue Hawaiian shaved ice and a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream that combine together to create a unique sensation worthy of a splurge!
To give you readers an inside scoop on this treat before splurge day, I went to Shave It’s Isla Vista location at 6530 Seville Road to try this delectable treat. I won’t deny it, the idea of shaved ice and ice cream together scared me. How were these chillingly good treats supposed to mesh together cohesively? The first bite definitely catches you off guard; the sweet tropical flavor of the ice with the rich sensation of vanilla ice cream made the treat taste like a virgin piña colada. The vibrant blue contrasted so perfectly against the creamy white it looked like one of those beautiful partly cloudy California skies.
This treat would be perfect for a summer day because the more it melted, the tastier it became, swirling together to create a pale blue color reminiscent of polar ice caps and encompassing both unique flavors evenly in the bites.
If you are around this June 18, don’t even think twice about giving yourself that well-deserved sugary goodness and stop in to Shave It for a free mini Blue Hawaiian shave ice treat that’ll excite your taste buds and feel good on the soul.
