Roselani offers rich new flavor
Roselani has added its first new ice cream flavor in more than three years: a cherry-flavored ice cream with black cherry halves and rich chocolate fudge, according to third-generation ice cream maker Cathy Nobriga Kim.
The flavor, "Aloha Cherry Truffle," is available by the scoop at several Maui sweet shops, and containers should be in retail stores by the end of the year. Three-gallon tubs can be purchased directly from the Maui company. Call (808) 244-7951 and pick up the ice cream at the Wailuku plant.
Roselani Ice Cream is a division of the Nobriga-family owned and operated Maui Soda & Ice Works Ltd. Cathy's grandfather started making ice cream from scratch in 1932; it was branded as Roselani in 1970 by her father, Buddy. Roselani Ice Cream is made fresh daily in Wailuku.
