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!

With so many positive reviews, I was really excited to try this place. However, I found the ice cream to be severely underwhelming. Had two chocolate type flavors and I thought that both had a grainy texture to them, not at all rich and creamy like quality ice cream should be. Glad we went to this place on the first... More

Great Ice Cream! In one week we made three visits to the Candy Kitchen. Each time ordering Sundae's or Malts. Both are excellent.. Go there!!!! We really like the original Candy Kitchen in Madiera Beach.

After walking to one of the many restaurants on Gulf Blvd, this is a must stop for dessert. The waffle cones with the hand dipped ice cream is a great way to top off a meal. Also, this place has candy you have not seen in years. Highly recommend.

Super fun ice cream shop and candy store to take kids into while out on a stroll for spring break. Grandpa was able to show grandkids candy he use to eat well over 50 years ago, and kids had a great time checking out the candy with the bugs in it! Ice cream was good and enjoyed sitting out on...

Seriously!? Insane?!?!? I know what I want when I walk in, but I walk out with a thousand things I truly didn't need. I love that their inventory includes any sweet and all things rare.

Many childhood memories returned as I walked into Candy Kitchen. Very good ice cream as well. Visit CK and turn back your clock!
