The flavor combinations are bold and creative and are deeply rooted and influenced by memories of island life. The Island Pops brand represents more than just ice cream, ice pops or snow cones. It is a reflection of all the best qualities the Caribbean has to offer. All-natural crafted artisan products that promote good vibes and happiness.
