There’s a new ice cream shop in town! Magnolia Ice Cream JUST opened its FIRST store in North America — inside Seafood City in Waipahu. Joining us this morning wiht more — P-J Quesada — he’s Vice President of Ramar Foods and a third-generation family co-owner. Good morning. Q: Magnolia Ice Cream opened its first North American store and flagship ice cream parlor in Hawaii this week. Tell us about the inspiration for the new scoop shop? A: We’ve been selling ice cream in Hawaii for over 30-yrs in markets like Seafood City, Don Quijote, Foodland, and other Asian markets, but we don’t usually get to hang out with people after they buy their ice cream. When my grandparents started Magnolia Ice Cream in 1972, they learned early on that ice cream is best enjoyed with friends. Now we get to share in the experience in the scoop shop at Waipahu Town Center, inside Seafood City. Q: These aren’t your average ice cream flavors. Tell us about what your serving at the store. A: Our ultra- premium ice cream offers a spectrum of South Pacific tropical flavors including Ube, Haupia, Jackfruit/Lanka, Lychee, Halo Halo, Taro. We’ve also created some new flavors that are only available in the store. Q: OK, what are you holding out of us. A: We spent over 2 years creating the perfect MaHalo-Halo treat, that will meet the high expectations of local shave ice enthusiasts as well as one that ignites the nostalgia of Filipinos. We’ve created a proprietary shaved ice machine, and a top secret blend of ice cream to make this dessert unlike any other. Q: Can I try some ice cream? A: Of course. I’ve brought some flavors for everyone to try. Q: Where can viewers get the ice cream and the MaHalo- Halo?
