Location: 305 Keawe St #511, Lahaina, HI 96761

I'm not sure Island Cream Company just tastes better because it's in Hawaii (everything is better in Hawaii) or if it's their original recipe with the perfect mix of gelato and ice cream.

#5 Hula Pie
Multiple Locations all over Hawaii: Hula Grill/ Barefoot Bar/ Dukes/ Leilani’s/ Kimo’s
Pricing: Around $11 for a huge slice!
You MUST try the Hula pie! It’s vanilla or macadamia nut ice cream with an Oreo crumble pie crust, with whipped cream and fudge on top!
#6 Shave Ice
A Hawaii classic! There are plenty of places to get shave ice and even food trucks on the side of the road have them! Make sure you get ice cream in the bottom, I love a good macadamia nut ice cream at the bottom of shaved ice with pineapple and coconut on top!
Ululani's Hawaiian Shave Ice (multiple locations) - 790 Front St, Lahaina, HI 96761
#7 Pie at Monkeypod Kitchen
Locations/Menu: Kaanapali and Wailea

I normally go for ice cream any chance I can get, but the Chocolate Cream Pie at Monkeypod is pretty phenomenal. Want something other than chocolate? Try their Strawberry, Banana, or Coconut Cream pies!
You can also try their Tropical Dreams Gelato & Sorbet for $7.95 with options of: Tahitian vanilla, chocolate, island hop Kona coffee, or featured flavor sorbet.
