Hawaii Mom Blog: Aloha Confectionery

Aloha Confectionery

There have been a handful of soft-serve ice cream establishments popping up on Oahu, mostly concentrated in the Ala Moana and Waikiki areas. Today I visited Aloha Confectionery, which is located in the Ala Moana Center, 3rd level near Target. 

I instantly fell in love with this place when I first entered, as did my sons.

They made a bee-line to the wall that had small boxes of assorted candies. They love anything gummy! 

I, on the other-hand, was initially drawn to the displays of fish-shaped shortbread cookies. 

The individually wrapped cookies come in an assortment of flavors, and are tastefully pre-packed in hard boxes that are perfect for transporting to the mainland to give as omiyage. During my visit, they offered samples of several of the shortbread cookies, and they were delicious.  

 Aloha Confectionery also sells cupcakes, which may look familiar to many of you who live on Oahu, because the owners of Aloha Confectionery used to own/operate a bakery specializing in cupcakes in Aiea called Sugarlina.

But what I really came here to try is the soft serve ice cream. They offer two flavors (fresh milk and milk tea).

If you want it in a cone (which is great for Instagramming), you'll pay an extra $2 for it. 

I skipped the cone and ordered the "Aloha Cookie" with a swirl of milk and milk tea ice cream.  It came with some toppings (marshmallows, pieces of chocolate, and shortbread cookie). 

I liked the creaminess of the ice cream - it was nice and thick and didn't melt quickly. However, it was a little bland for my taste buds. It did taste better when I added chunks of the brownie that my friend bought from the shop. :)

I wouldn't come back for the ice cream, but I would definitely return for the cookies and cupcakes!
