Not the best Ice Cream I ever had but definitely in the top 10 !... Like that several tropical flavors(Lychee, Mango) are offered in Gelato medium ( as opposed to water based Sorbetto) . Good value when you combine 3 flavors in 1 Grande cup.....More

I had Lapperts ice cream years ago in Hawaii. It was always a fond memory. All flavors are terrific but my favorite is the Kauai Pie. A super rich indulgence.

With ice cream names like: Lilikoi, Hana road, and Kahlua truffle ice cream (all that are equally amazing, esp if you enjoy coffee), it's hard not to be intrigued by this Hawaii-based company. Having never had a "Dole Whip," my family insisted we stop by...More
