If you like ice-cream this is the place to visit. There must be 20 or 30 different varieties to choose from and if you can't make up your mind they will let you try a little on the end of a spoon.

Love the old candy and small toys from the 60's and 70's. The ice cream is good, portions are good. Service is typically good. Just a cool, different place to go.

This is a retro candy shop with lots of hard to find old candy brands. The kids really like this place but are overwhelmed with the huge variety of candies and don't know what to get. They also serve ice cream, prices are average.

This is a nice little shop in a strip plaza just down from Slyce Pizza. A decent selection of ice cream and other treats, but nothing out of the ordinary. The staff is friendly and the prices are on par with other places along Gulf Blvd.

Visited Candy Kitchen several times and never disappointed. Ice cream always rich and creamy. Chocolate flavors I have tried have all been intense, and the servings generous. The stores are also like a walk back in time with numerous vintage toys and candies from my childhood. If you have a sweet tooth, look no further!

First time visit, highly recommended by our Granddaughters. The best malt I have had in a long time. Looking at all the types of candy brought back great memories from child hood. If you're close by, stop in. The young man that helped us was very awesome!

Took home some fudge and it was inedible. Won't be back. Weird texture and taste. Won't be back to try anything else.

Great little place with retro candy, and a great price on one of my favorite treats of all time: chocolate covered gummy bears! They aren't easy to find and I've paid a lot for them, but they had .33 oz plastic tubs for $2 or $3! I went back again for more a day later. Friendly staff and a great... More

The rum raisin ice cream had no rum flavor except in the raisins. Portion size was nice and other flavors were passable, but my favorite stunk.

Great ice cream with featured flavors that rotate through the week. Old time candies from several decades, but especially a lot for those of us who grew up in the 70's or 80's. The Indian Rocks location is bigger than the one on Madeira Beach and has more parking so it's easier to get in and out. Very friendly college... More
