OK I grew up in New Orleans so that's why it's a must for me. Best shaved ice on the island if not the world. Another line out the door and a easy 20 minute wait. Have to have it with either condensed milk or...More

Yes. There could possibly be products in the gift shop with peanuts. Shave ice is eaten outside so there shouldn't be any close contact with anyone who could have peanuts on them. Shave ice is just syrup and ice in a bowl.
