The shop was very small and quaint had all of the candy from my past of 60+ years. This is a stop YOU need to make!

Old and dirty!! We walked in with a line almost out the door and thought "oh this must be a really good place". After standing around and looking at the candy that had some expiration dates too close for comfort we left ultimately because the place smelled so bad, we didn't want to chance getting sick from the ice cream....

A must stop. Tons of great candy and, with so many vintage choices, it's like a trip back in time. There are two locations that I know of - and both are great.

This place was great for the kids, any kind of ice cream or candy you could think of. We went there a couple of times and always good.

Not the highest quality ice cream, but worth at least a visit with the kids if you are staying in the area. They have a neat collection of Candy too. 4 rating caveat being that it is area specific...

There were several of these in the area but we actually stopped at the one in IRB. Lots of old time candy and toys which was cool. The salt water taffy is super soft! I had the frozen banana and it was good, but I think the banana was mashed or something before it was frozen because when it melted... More

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

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
