My wife and I first had the opportunity to taste Tropical Dreams ice cream when we honeymooned in Kauai, back in 2009. At that time the parlor/video rental was kind of out of the way, on a road to the Kilauea Lighthouse and we discovered it a day before we left the island. There was scant opportunity for seconds that time around. Even having just tried it once, the ice cream left a lasting impression. So, early last month, when my family and I were fortunate to revisit Kauai again, I was excited to reacquaint myself! The new location is much more convenient, off Kuhio Hwy in a plaza with a Safeway grocery store. The location (and our determination) made it possible for us to stop by four of the seven evenings we had on the island. The ice cream and gelato here has the addiction potential of any Level 1 Substance, and I got my entire family hooked. The menu has diversified a bit, and we tried several different combinations. All of the flavors were a hit. My personal favorite was the toasted coconut topped with chocolate gelato. My wife and sister swore by the mango and lychee flavors. My brother-in-law fell in love with their strawberry cheesecake. Point being, everything was fantastic. Dan, and his wife, are as charming as ever and we will miss them and their potent treats.
