In the 17 years that Douglas Shepardson has run Sweet Treats on the Wharf, he has produced most of the frozen desserts known to man: ice cream, soft serve, frozen yogurt, Italian ice, sorbet. Last year, he started making shave ice, a Hawaiian specialty in which finely ground ice is topped with sweet, colorful, fruit-flavored syrup, resulting in a refreshing solid-going-slushy beverage. Flavors include raspberry, grape, cherry, green apple, lemon-lime, piña colada and a fruity-coconutty combo called tiger's blood. Buy a cup for $2, then stroll onto Inspiration Wharf for one of the best views on the North Shore.(June 13, 2010)
