For a small island of approximately 55,000, St. CroixÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s wide array of tastes is impressive. So, topping off a trip to the amoeba-shaped isle with a last lick of ArmstrongÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Ice Cream is the perfect way to savor the array of culinary fare that reflects its multicultural population.
Just 28 miles long by seven miles wide, St. Croix is indeed a ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œfoodyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢sÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â paradise. It is the largest of the three islands that make up the United States Virgin Islands - St. John and St. Thomas the others. Its surprising culinary encounters complements tourism, the islandÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s mainstay.
