Wing Ice Cream: Homemade on Oahu
In many towns, ice cream is a seasonal treat, however, in Hawaii, it can be enjoyed year round. Lucky Hawaii! Those looking for a gustatory experience apart from the humdrum vanilla, chocolate and strawberry can venture to Chinatown on Oahu for an ice cream shop that wows with unique flavors.
Tucked away next to a lei store is Wing Ice Cream. They serve an eclectic array of flavors like Rose, Strawberry with Oreos, Mango, Lavender, and Li-Hing. Each flavor is produced in a small batch and the flavors are rotated frequently because the owner adds in customer requests and his own concoctions.
Reading some of the flavors is like peering into the brilliant brain of a mad ice cream scientist – The Dirty Diaper (Vaniller, Fudge, Brownie and caramel, Violet Beauregarde (Blueberry and violet), Coco Tiger (coconut, mango, ginger), and Guabanero (guava and habanero).
Ice Cream for Everyone!
Ice cream enthusiasts of all types can enjoy Wings. There are a variety of flavors to choose from and they have a coconut based ice cream for Vegans. The shop is also open late. It’s a great place to go after a day at the beach or work.
No Samples and Bring Cash
Because the ice cream is made in such small batches, they don’t offer samples. I recommend bringing a few people and ordering different flavors so you can taste a range. Also, bring cash as they do not take credit cards.
We added Wing Ice Cream to our Oahu Must Do trip. While ice cream is not a must do, it is very important. Check out the Oahu trip for ideas for your Hawaii trip planning.
