Honorable Mentions


Other ice-cream flavors you’re likely to encounter at a Jamaican or tropical ice-cream shop include sorrel, ginger, sweetsop, tamarind and naseberry. All could easily have been on this list, especially naseberry, a Jamaican favorite that was used to invent the original chewing gum. They just weren’t available for us to sample (and photograph) during any of our recent jaunts to Jamaican ice-cream shops. Marlon Davis of Nesberry’s, which gets its name from the naseberry fruit, says he’s only able to make his shop’s namesake flavor during certain times of year, due to lack of availability. “Naseberry is a very expensive fruit to find, especially in the US,” he says.
