US President Barack Obama took a respite from the pile of grim news clouding his vacation, taking a group of friends and their kids for a chill Hawaii delicacy -- shave ice.
At a shave-ice store near his vacation rental, Obama on Friday picked one of the concotions, made of ice and fruit syrup and known as the "Snowbama" in his honor -- flavored with lemon-lime, cherry, and passion guava.
"That is the Snowbama," the president said, when reporters questioned his choice of treat, after he ordered the group 19 shave ice cones of various flavors.
Onlookers cheered Obama, who was with daughters Malia and Sasha and friends and their children who have been sharing his vacation in his home state.

It’s SHAVE ice. Donchaknow?
We all have been getting this ‘Snowbama’ since he took office.
"It's the Snowbama. I like my shave ice straight, no frills." Obama
This article has to be the most ridiculous I have seen in a while.
We have terrorist flying on our planes, CIA agents getting blown up, etc, and the media is fixated on Obama eating shave-ice.
Come back to Chicago a-hole and you'll see some; snow, bama.
this global warming is killing us, its a balmy -1oF now
He has a peculiar way of eating frozen treats.
The election of Barack 0bama as POTUS has put America in the running for the Darwin Awards.
The real question is whether The 0ne is doing this intentionally or simply through the profound failure of his entire marxist-fairy-tale world view.
Gee, was Avatar THAT bad?
Grim news clouding his vacation???? Oh, poor freakin BABY!
That is not to be confused with all of his partying at the White House, when he's not busy naming self admitted communists and tax cheats to administration posts.
You would think the first black POTUS would strive to act a bit less stereotypical, whats next, rocking on the White House porch with a can of grape soda in one hand and a watermelon in the other?
Dude cannot order shave-ice without a script. LOL!
Obama ordered shave ice for the group, going up to the counter with a long list of orders on lined notebook paper folded in half.
with the state of the world and nearly 300 dying the AP decides to run with a story about eating shaved ice and then throws in the words of despite the dreadful news clouding his vacation
good grief just when one thought the media could not have got any worse they come out with this crock of crap
that picture grates me everytime I see it.
a muslim woman stopping a nun and searching her.
what is the frigging point, it’s not nuns attacking us but the kind of idiot who is doing security
OH HAPPY DAY! I AGREE WE COULDN’T HAVE MANAGED TO LIVE A DAY WITHOUT KNOWING OLD BLUE LIPS HAD SHAVE ICE! THAT DOES EXPLAIN THE REASON HE HAS BLUE LIPS, THOUGH.
I saw that picture and just can’t believe that this is what the media is fixated on while terrorist are boarding our planes.
Does anyone know if we, the taxpayers, are having to pick up the tab for the “friends” too? If so for how much?
By the way, who is paying for his vacation rental?
“Onlookers cheered”, did they.......sure; right. OK.
Oh wait....must have been the press corps, all of whom were wishing they could swap places with his shaved ice treat.....
