Still a classic

This location keeps the tradition of the original in Madeira Beach. Same great homemade ice cream. You can always find candy from your childhood.

Recently stopped by with friends who were visiting us. We have many favortie places to stop for frozen treats, but decided to try a new place. There was a young girl scooping ice cream who was wonderful and friendly. But a few other were waiting, and the manager/owner basically ignored the forming line and kept to herself. When daughter's scoop... More

This is a small place with a huge variety of old and new candies. We all had a great time seeing what kinds they offered, and it brought back lots of memories. :) The main draw, though, was the ice cream. Whether it was in a cup, milkshake, cone, or waffle cone everyone agreed it was delicious. This place is... More

Candy Kitchen has awesome homemade Ice cream and we enjoyed it very much and recommend it to everyone. They have many of the old time candies and sodas in stock as well. It really took me back to my childhood to visit.

Best ice cream in the area! Great selection of flavors and some excellent candies and glass bottle sodas to round out the sugar fix.

We stopped by because we heard about Candy Kitchen's delicious homemade ice cream but while we loved the ice cream, we had so much fun looking at all the candy! There was candy from years past that I didn't even know existed anymore. They also had homemade fudge and specialty glass bottle soda such as Nehi. We had such a... More

Step back in time as you gaze through the endless displays of old time candy while waiting for your ice cream. Bubble gum cigars, Black Cows, Sugar Babie, Bit O Honey and all the old favorites from childhood. Even some really gross stuff like scorpion candy (YES! REAL SCORPIONS inside) & chocolate covered ants.

We came here multiple times during our week long stay in Sand Key. The hand dipped ice cream was delicious and SO WELL priced. The staff was also very friendly and willing to let us try as many flavors as we wanted. Would definitely recommend!
