Lappert's Ice Cream: Hawaiian delights

Posted: Updated:

POWAY (CBS 8) - It's tropical. It's exotic. It's aromatic. It's Poway.

Lappert's Ice Cream has found its San Diego home in a Scripps Poway Parkway business park, but it can trace its roots all the way back to the islands.

"In 1982 we started in operation, a small ice cream shop in Kauai… started making out own ice cream in a small batch maker setup," Joe Sassy said.

Today, Lappert's has garnered a nationwide reputation for its creative concoctions.

"We're able to mix ice cream with sorbet. We're the only manufacturer in the industry that can take sorbet, which is fruit product, and mix it with a cream base," Joe said.

Kauai pie is an all-time favorite.

"It's a Kona coffee base, coconut fudge, chocolate macadamia nuts, mixed all together," Joe said. "On the mainland, we're the only manufacturer that focuses on macadamia nuts."

Lappert's customers are loyal. They know what they want. There's no waffling with their customers -- these are ice cream connoisseurs.

Lappert's serves up over 100 different flavors on a rotating basis that can be mixed and matched to your heart's desire.

"One of Lappert's specialties is a non-dairy, non-fat pineapple whip," Joe said.

On the leeward side of a strip mall, you'll find a true taste of the tropics that's purely Poway.
