Currently eating dessert, I thought of writing about the best desserts you must try in Hawaii. Sweet tooth cravings are real. When they decide to make their visit once a month, there’s luckily more than enough options to choose from in Hawaii. Here is a list of desserts and places we recommend:

1. Shave Ice

Matsumoto Shave Ice is one of the most popular shave ice place on the North Shore. Try any flavore shave ice with condensed milk and vanilla ice cream!

2. Acai Bowl

Our favorite is from Haleiwa Bowls on the North Shore. They offer the most fruit choices out of the other acai bowl places on the island.

3. Coconut Creme Brûlée

You can get this amazing dessert from Japengo Restaurant in Waikiki.

4. Malasadas

With different cream fillings to choose from, Leonard’s Bakery malasadas is a perfect, hot dessert!

5. Coco Puffs

Liliha Bakery is famous for their coco puffs which are available in regular custard, chocolate, and green tea.
