What You'll Get
Like butter sculptures, frozen desserts are quick to melt, fun to create with family, and best stored in the human mouth. Enjoy icy symbiosis with today’s Groupon: for $4, you get $8 worth of shaved ice at Shave It, with locations in Thousand Oaks, Valencia, and Norwalk.
Shave It melts down dessert seekers’ hardened shells and unleashes inner culinary chemists with a customizable menu of shaved, creamed, and caffeinated ice. The original Shave It, fluffier than its gritty sno-cone kin and packing half the calories and twice the vocabulary of frozen yogurt, begins as a powdery canvas of finely-shaved ice, ready to be painted with the customer’s choice of punchy Hawaiian-made “flavas.” Tickle minimalist taste buds with a simple Shave It laced with coconut, root beer, or green-tea syrup ($3.09/8 oz.), or craft an edible pastiche with additional flavors ($0.59 each), a strata of ice cream ($0.79), and sweet cream or sour sprinkles ($0.59 each). A line of pre-designed blends, such as the sour-cherry-lime Nintendo Crash ($4.38/8 oz.) and the Tropical Swell combo of tri-fruit shaved ice and vanilla ice cream ($4.97/8 oz.), guide indecisive appetites, and sugar-free syrups and coffee-saturated ices ($4.97/8 oz.) coddle waist-watchers and caffeine junkies alike.
Not content to simply place frozen treats in loving stomachs, Shave It donates a percentage of all its proceeds to the Foster a Miracle Foundation. The shop’s futuristic lighting, gleaming surfaces, and black-lit glass environs play up the natural coolness of shaved ice and give customers a chance to test-drive retirement fantasies of ice-cavern homesteading.
