An old-fashioned ice cream sandwich is one of life’s greatest simple pleasures. And thanks to Scoop Hawaii at 1449 N. King Street, Honolulu residents now have an option to support local businesses — and enjoy a tasty treat at the same time.

Owned and operated by the same folks who run Photo Ops Hawaii, an event photography company, Scoop’s operating hours — 1:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and until 8:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday — cater to students from Farrington High School across the street.

Scoop makes for a perfect mid-afternoon snack for adults, too, or a dessert stop after going out for dinner in town. Their cookies are freshly baked and the ice cream is produced and shipped from the Big Island.

The ordering process is simple, too. Pick a cookie and select your ice cream flavor. Pay $3.75. That’s it.

I kept it simple the last time I visited, going for a basic chocolate chip cookie sandwich with Tahitian vanilla ice cream. I wasn’t disappointed.

If you crave more adventurous flavor profiles, Scoop offers cookie choices like white chocolate macadamia, snicker doodle, red velvet, raspberry cheesecake and even macarons (for an additional $2).

And I can’t wait to go back and try ice cream flavors like chocolate peanut butter Oreo, strawberry cream and toasted coconut.

The best way to keep up with Scoop is via social media. Follow them on Instagram.
