At Hawaiian Shaved Ice, our shaved ice and snow cone syrup flavors range from the traditional flavors like cherry and strawberry to more exotic flavors like sangria and cherimoya - which is the subject of today’s syrup spotlight. Cherimoya may sound completely foreign to you and you have no idea what to expect when you try this syrup. So, let’s take a trip to syrup school and discover what makes cherimoya shaved ice and snow cone syrup.

What is it?
Cherimoya, commonly known as custard apple, is a tropical fruit native to Peru and Ecuador. In ancient Incan times it was just for royalty. On appearance, the cherimoya fruit is shaped similar to a grapefruit but is light green in color. Neither the outside skin nor the inner seeds are edible but you do eat the white flesh inside, which has a lovely fragrance to it. You’ll soon see why the cherimoya fruit makes for one exciting shaved ice and snow cone syrup flavor!

Our Cherimoya Shaved Ice Flavor
Just like a real cherimoya, our cherimoya shaved ice and snow cone syrup tastes surprisingly like a blend of several different fruits—banana, pineapple, papaya, peach and strawberry. It has a fresh, custard like flavor. Some think that it has hints of regular bubblegum. Whether you are having a tropical themed party or maybe you're simply bored with the same syrups over and over again, we think that cherimoya will be a refreshing change. Since it has such a diverse mixture of tastes, everyone from the tiniest tots to the pickiest grown-ups will find cherimoya flavored shaved ice a distinctively delightful treat.

Running out of syrup when you’re excitedly preparing your homemade shaved ice and snow cones can be very disappointing and can put a damper on your whole experience. We hate to see that happen, so for convenience, cherimoya syrup is available in quart size and gallon size containers. It can also be purchase as part of a flavored syrup package.
