Bubbie's Homemade Ice Cream (Honolulu)

Next to the flavored "shave ice" that President Obama loves, ice cream is tops in Hawaii and Bubbie's may be Honolulu's premier ice cream maker. The company has been making super premium ice cream for more than 27 years. Both locals and tourists know it for its delectable bite-size mochi – rounds of ice cream enrobed in a sweetened rice confection, most in pretty pastel colors. Of 20 available flavors, Azuki Bean, Green Tea, and tropical fruit flavors such as Guava are must-tries. They're small and reasonably priced, so sample a few. [bubbiesicecream.com]
