Rolly Polly has decided to add a new home to their growing franchise. Since 2017, Rolly Polly started with locations in Mandeville and Ocho Rios but have now decided to move to Kingston. "We decided to move to Kingston in order to provide the joy of our ice cream to a wider demography. Kingstonians would often travel all the way to Ocho Rios for our products, so we thought why not go to them," Taneisha Hinds told Food.

They offer more 50 flavours for dairy lovers. The flavours are rich and all natural so while this might be a guilty pleasure, you can feel a bit less remorseful for indulging in this treat. Not because you are vegan doesn't mean that you cannot indulge in the simple pleasures This is something that they pride themselves on as there is no other ice cream company that offer vegan ice cream options.

Of the many flavours, Hinds admits that her favourite is none other than the black forest and Baileys. While customers tend to gravitate to the hummingbird. This ice cream includes Oreo, banana and Baileys, and we know just how much Jamaicans love their Baileys.

They try to bring a difference to the way that they even present their ice cream with their fried ice cream that is prepared right before your eyes. The ice cream is whipped and then rolled, which is the main reason for the name Rolly Polly.

While some customers come for the ice cream, there is a lot more than they offer. You can get your morning kick-start with coffee, get your milkshakes, crepes and have a taste of the finer things with wines.

There is no reason not to give it a try, "Customers should come to us because we cater to all the ice cream needs, we are authentic where our flavours are concerned, we are 100 per cent natural, and 100 per cent vegan."
