We stayed on the North Shore of Kauai, but on our second day trip to the South Shore, we made sure to stop at Koloa Town Center to get Papalani Ice Cream. It's that good. My favorite was the Mud Pie, and our kids loved the chocolate and vanilla flavors. Their coffee drinks rock, too. You gotta try this ice cream!

I first had the vanilla and butterscotch gelato at a restaurant for dessert. A few days later, I tried it at the store at Poipu Shopping Village. Not sure why, but it did not taste quite as flavorful here as at the restaurant.

I think we must have tried every flavor - and there were none that were not delicious! If you are staying in Poipu, you must try.

This gelato is wonderful, and they fill the cups high. Plus, this shopping center often has hula dancers or fire twirlers.
