“Yummy Gelato and Sorbet”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

We just returned from St Croix and are so happy that we tried Jaccar. Jacky and Carol were wonderful and we ended up returning twice more during our stay. We loved the flavors and tried different ones each time. The watermelon mint pops, Aztec chocolate gelato and peppermint candy gelato were favorites. It was great to see a business that uses compostible and recyclable materials. They take so much care in making their products. We can't wait to return and try more flavors!

“Delicious, local and unusual sorbet, gelato, etc.”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

I've just been to Jaccar Sorbet. As a local, this place could get very dangerous for me! Fortunately, they have a wonderful 4oz serving that is just enough of an indulgence to satisfy my sweet tooth! Today I tried the spicy Aztec chocolate gelato - wonderful chocolate flavor that progresses on to a variety of spices - yum! My hubby got the fresh mint gelato - you could taste the mint (as in the plant, not just the single flavor the food industry tells us is mint).

“Great people and GREAT food!”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

Jaccar is the best sorbet and snacks on the Island! Jacky and Carol are great people and do all the prep work themselves. They treat each customer like friends and family. I would recommend this place 150%!

“Delightful Island Flavors”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

We've been on the island for a week. We've been to Jaccar three times and are debating stopping in again before we fly out tomorrow. We've tried a variety of sorbet and gelato and none have dissappointed. Do not miss this place.
