shaveitLast week I wrote that Spudnuts is coming to Seville Road in Isla Vista, next to Firehouse Subs.

Reader Cris tells me that a franchised eatery named “Shave It,” will be opening next door to Spudnuts.

Their web site,, describes the business:

“If you have ever scooped up a handful of soft and fluffy freshly fallen snow and taken a bite, you know how snow melts in your mouth. Imagine that same white snow drenched with your favorite flavor – that’s a Shave It.”

Flavors offerings include pink lemonade, passion fruit, root beer and many others.

    Oh goodness, I saw this the other day when I was looking for the new Spudnuts. I guessed- based off the name– it was a specialty shaving store!! ie. nice razors, etc. Seemed a bit weird for IV to me.

    So I read elegant snowcone?

    Having had Shave It a bunch of times down in Thousand Oaks, it’s really nothing like a snow-cone. The ice isn’t crunchy like a snow-cone and they are often paired with ice-cream underneath the ice. The combination makes it delicious.

    Too bad they weren’t open this week! Or in my living room.
    Check out shave ice on wikipedia or search you tube for “shave ice” and “shave ice machine” It shows ads, but with footage that illustrates the difference between shave(d) ice and crushed ice.
    Hey Ice Man, got one? 🙂

  5. We hope to be open in another month or so and we are hiring.

    This one in IV is empty with a For Lease sign in the window. Perhaps old news, but I just noticed today.
