My cousins eyed the Jamaican coffee with great interest. It was blended with coffee beans (0.5%) with a hint of Jamaican rum and a smooth chocolate ripple sauce (7.5%). It sounded like a perfect dreamy choice. However, they were also tempted by the 2009 Gold medal award winning vanilla ice cream that was loaded with extra ground vanilla beans.
Unable to decide, my cousins settled on a double scoop of the Jamaican coffee and the award-winning vanilla beans ice cream. It tasted rich, creamy and it was every bit as exciting as it sounds.
The star attraction for me was definitely the famed lavender ice cream. The lavender ice cream has an unique taste and it was amazingly delicious. It was smooth, creamy and full of flavour. It is definitely a must-try flavour.
If you can just look away from the 50 delightful flavours of ice cream in front of you for a minutes, look up and you will see rows and stacks of colourful candies, lollies, sweet confectionery and chocolates tempting your sweet tooth. It's just like when I was a kid.
Everyone needs a good scoop of ice cream (or two) from time to time. Unleash your inner child and satisfy your child-like curiosities and desires while you sample all the sweet delights. "Could time-travel be this easy?" is what you will be wondering while you are here.
