Ever Tried Tasaka Guri Guri???

Located in the Maui Mall, this desert shop parlor has been a staple on Maui for over 100 years. Tasaka family's business started with a small store on Pu'unene Avenue located in Kahului, Maui. From that small store, the Tasaka family has relocated over Central Maui and have been located in Maui Mall, since 1973.  This is a local business that has stood the test of time.

A cross between a sorbet, and a gelato, not-quite ice cream is one for the senses. Typical ingredients of guri-guri are a mixture of flavored juices, guava juice, and condensed milk. Tasaka Guri-Guri's recipe has been kept a secret for over a century, however rumor has it that lemon-lime soda may also be involved. The latest to know the recipe are Gunji Tasaka, who is retired from the shop, and his two daughters, Gail and Cindy Tasaka, who have now taken over the family business.

Guri-guri comes in two flavors: pineapple and strawberry.  I encourage you to bring a friend and stop by next time you're in town. You will not be disappointed.
