Thirst Aid Station
Instead of offering a menu of different smoothie combinations, this concessionaire invites each customer to create their own smoothie. A couple dozen fruits are available: passion fruit, coconut, blueberry and mango are heaped into metal holders behind glass. Just point to what you want and it goes in the blender. Slushes, floats, frozen yogurt, croissants, popcorn, muffins and other snacks are also sold.
Why O Why did they ever replace this unique beverage stand which no one else can ever live up to. I live in Hawaii and every Sunday we'd take a ride to Ala Moana just for the ONO (delicious) smoothie. The others hit it right on target, U GOTTA GET 2!!! This is simply the best smoothie and slush place ever built. I wonder if the owners are still around, maybe we can make a plea to have them bring it back. We are fortunate to have had thirst aid station grace our beautiful island.
I was told that this place closed down recently. SAD! I started going there in the 80's and then as my work left Hawaii and moved onto Guam and Saipan, my local friends in Hawaii would bring Thirst Aid Station smoothies to me at the airport in cooler bags for the flight (Obviously before 9/11). When my fiancee and I traveled to hawaii on vacation in 2002.... the Thirst Aid Station was high on the priority list of things locals do. Nothing compared to them and as another reviewer mentioned... Getting two at a time... that wasn't gluttony... that was just how you had to do it. They should have sold a 40 oz. version... I'd pay for one of those right now... Mmmmm!
