It all started in 1978 as a family-owned and operated ice cream parlor. We asked our customers what they were looking for in ice cream that they couldn't find anywhere else. The answer was the homegrown flavors of the tropics made in a way that stayed true to their Caribbean roots. We put our noses to the grindstone and came up with a line of ice cream made from authentic ingredients and real Caribbean flavors.
From our first handmade batches, where we painstakingly experimented with our ingredients to create the ideal mix, to expansion into modern ice cream-making methods to satisfy our ever-growing and diversifying customer base, we still have the same passion for ice cream that we did in the hot summer days when the idea was born.
Over the years we've narrowed down our ice creams to the six signature flavors that we do better than anyone else: vanilla, great nut, mango, rum raisin, rummy nut, and coconut made from the freshest creams and ingredients imported straight from the tropics. We wouldn't expect anything less in our tropical ice cream, and we certainly would not expect anything less for our customers.
Taste the Tropics is not like other ice cream products that you may be used to. The truth is, you'll taste more than the tropics in your first spoonful, and every one after that. You'll taste the passion and care that has kept us in business as an independent ice cream maker for more than forty years. So, whether it's an exotic novelty or a reminder of home, phone us, email us, or just browse our website when you're ready to experience a taste of the tropics.
