Description: Tropical Dreams Ice Cream offers over 150 flavors of super premium ice cream, vegan ice cream, gelato and sorbet all handmade on the big island. Super premium means it's handmade with 18% butterfat, adding a rich and creamy texture you can taste. All Hawaiian ingredients are grown on environmentally friendly farms and 100% of our cream produced by Big Island dairies. The result....a true Hawaiian gourmet ice cream that is dense and very rich tasting with flavors you only dream about

Pay no attention to the negative reviews about the owner. He's passionate about a great thing and simply wants to share it with you. That's called good customer service. After you've been there a couple times, he already knows you, and then those who are socially awkward can go in for their "casual" scoop.

The ingredients are home-grown and home-sourced, and perhaps most importantly, the dairy comes from Hawaiian grass-fed, free-range cows. And this is exactly why the icecream tastes so good.

As a true ice cream lover, I can say with confidence that the salted caramel cone I had while on vacation in Kapaa was one of the best taste sensations ever!

I must start out by saying that this is very expensive ice cream! But it is so worth the money. Took our children here on a recommendation by our Optometrist. He told us that it was not to be missed. So on our 2nd to last day of a month long stay we finally went by to try this ice cream. He was right. This ice cream is hands down the best that we have ever had. Our 13 year old son eats everything fast. He savored every bite. A must if you are here!
