KAILUA, Hawaii — President Barack Obama has kept a low profile during his Hawaiian vacation, but the public got a glimpse of the first family when he took his daughters and friends for a treat on Friday. The group enjoyed a local treat of ice shavings and flavored syrup, while the President joshed with his friends about college football.

Obama and about 20 people drove to a shave ice store the president has visited during past trips to Hawaii. He ordered a flavor combination of lemon-lime, cherry and passion-guava syrups.

“It’s the Snowbama,” Obama said, noting that the store lists the combination on its menu.

He chose not to add sweet azuki red beans or ice cream, as some people do in Hawaii.

“I like my shave ice straight, no frills,” said a casual Obama, wearing a white T-shirt, khaki shorts and sandals.

About 100 people packed into a shopping center parking lot to catch a glimpse of the vacationing president and his girls, who have largely stayed out of public view while on the island of Oahu.

While waiting in line Obama teased a friend who rooted for Oregon. The Ducks lost to Ohio State in the Rose Bowl earlier in the day.

“He’s heartbroken, so I’m buying him shave ice,” Obama said.

The store – Island Snow – said on its Facebook page that the first daughters already had visited the store during this vacation.

First lady Michelle Obama was not seen with the group.
