5. Homemade Ice Cream
Before Cookies n’ Cream, Rocky Road, fancy parlors and trucks, there were little old ladies pushing wheelbarrows through villages, setting up on corners and selling homemade ice cream in a variety of flavors that would take even those Trinis living in the coldest states down memory lane. From coconut to soursop to rum n raisin and Guinness, cooling down with a scoop of homemade ice cream should be on your Carnival to-do list.
Tip: The far-flung regions of the islands still retain the best authentic flavors. If you’re on the island with enough time make a road trip, Naomi’s Homemade Ice Cream in Toco (Anse Noir to be exact) should be on your list.
