TASTY TUESDAY: Hang 10 brings the lu’au to your taste buds

The new Hawaiian shaved ice spot offers more than 50 flavors


ROANOKE, Va.Hang 10 rode the wave into the Wasena neighborhood just two weeks ago, and it’s been a hit ever since.

When John Anstey first approached Teal Batson about the idea, she thought, “This will be phenomenal. Something that Roanoke doesn’t have.”

Anstey brought the idea 4600 miles east after a trip to the island chain, after seeing how they do things a little differently.

“[We have a] Shaver that shaves it paper-thin. It’s almost like a ribbon of ice, and then it’s topped with syrups that are made with pure sugar cane and natural flavoring,” said Batson.

The thinner shaving holds the flavor together for specials like the Big Kahuna, which is as big as your head but as tasty and refreshing as it gets.

Other popular items that are unique to Hang 10 include Dole Whip. This fruit-flavored soft serve is a refreshing treat that goes along with the cool vibe inside and outside Hang 10.

Come try some Strawberry Dole Whip available today! This weekend we are switching to Pineapple, while supplies last. Come Hang 10 with us🤙🏼🌴
