I want a Rolly Polly [Ice Cream]

Rolled Ice cream! *Mind Blown*

I first discovered Rolly Polly Ice Cream Shop when my friend Nicole visited last year & sent me a video clip of the process. From that day I had been hell bent on visiting!

Unfortunately, I had to wait awhile to get there…only because the shop is located in Ocho Rios. When I finally got there I was elated!

Rolly Polly is  Jamaica‘s First Fried Ice cream Shop!

Fried ice cream?…yes you read right!

Their ice cream is made in front of your eyes on frozen plates!


As we entered the shop we were greeted by a staff member who walked us through the flavour board and gave us a brief overview of what we were about to taste.

I decided to take a 2 flavour options Oreo & Tiki (A wafer bar sold in the Caribbean) which cost me $6 USD ($600 JMD).

The process was so cool to watch.

The ice cream maker started the process by “breaking up” two Oreo cookies & a Tiki bar on the metal plate before adding what appeared to be milk or cream.

Almost instantly the magic began!

In no time my ice cream took form right in front of my eyes.

Once the ice cream was completely frozen & ‘ready’, he proceeded to roll it.

The purchase included not only the rolled ice cream but also whipped cream, syrup & one topping.

I got a coupon for a free topping so I got whipped cream, chocolate syrup, wafers & an Oreo cookie (the extra topping).

My Tiki & Oreo Combo…YUMMY!

I absolutely loved my Rolly Polly experience!

The service was a sweet as the ice cream and the options were just too exciting! It took me a good 10 minutes to decide the combination I wanted.

I definitely recommend a visit because it is as much about the experience as it is about the taste.

Check the process of making my ice cream at the end of my Dolphin Cove vlog:

Dolphin Kisses

Dolphin Cove Ocho Rios has been on my Travel list (I need to post it one day) for awhile now so I jumped at the opportunity to visit when my friend Fran suggested it. I was apprehensive about the price because it is a very “touristy” activity & those are usually pretty expensive but when Fran told me that we would be getting the experience for $6300 JMD I was like SIGN ME UP!

Rainy Day Adventures: Happy Hour at Margaritaville Ocho Rios

We left Kingston mid-morning with the intention to frolic at Mystic Mountain, however, the weather in Ocho Rios had other plans. We left Kingston rather cloudy which isn’t much of a warning sign because usually when we have clouds on the South it is rather sunny in the North or West.

We took the North Coast Highway right into what felt like a hurricane! However, we still made our way to Mystic. Unfortunately we were a little late because we got there when they had admitted the last patrons for the day :(. This left us with a major decision…What do we do is this weather?!

#DryLandTouristChronicles: Portland Getaway Day 1

I spent my last weekend in January enjoying the beautiful parish of Portland with my friends.

 

This was definitely one of my favourite trips to the parish because we had so many adventures & visited so many spots in 48 hours!

#DryLandTouristChronicles: #TBT…Lost Cayman Islands Vlog

Thinking about the Cayman Islands brings back fond memories because my trip there changed my life. Prior to the trip, travelling was always a distant dream for me; the trip made it a reality & not just a wish or a newspaper clipping in a vision box.

I wasn’t the best at vlogging (I still have a far way to go) but I had so much fun doing it.

I actually came across a forgotten SD card while cleaning which to my surprise had my “lost” Cayman Islands vlog footage.  I got right on top of things & edited the footage.

To this day, my trip to Grand Cayman is still one of my best trips. I hope you enjoy the footage as much as I did the trip.

#DryLandTouristChronicles: Rose Hall Virgin

This post is a real throwback or fling back as we Jamaicans would say. Today, I revisit my first trip to the Rose Hall Great House in Montego Bay, St. James.

When I was younger, there were numerous school trips to Rose Hall that I always missed because I just always fell ill.

I finally broke my Rose Hall virginity in 2012 on a Rotaract trip.

#DryLandTouristChronicles: Bahamas Vlog Part 2

After editing the video footage from my trip to Nassau, my computer crashed & I lost the first video. In a stroke of faith or luck, I found the SD card with the footage except our visit to the aquarium but I still edited what I had & did my best to make this vlog.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed my exprience.

 

Until my next trek…
