THE BEST!!

No trip to Madeira Beach is complete unless you hit the CK! Have fun going back in time with candy you will remember. They even package candies that were popular during the 60's ,70's and 80's! Great gifts for candy buffs.

We have passed this place many times going to the beach. This time we decided to try it. After all they had been there a long time. They must be good right? WRONG! It was the worst ice cream place I've been to. It tasted like chocolate ice, no cream. We tried a couple flavors both with virtually no taste.... More

OK if you can't eat ice cream there is sherbet. But the ice cream is made fresh on site with some flavors changing almost daily. The standbys are always there but try one of the house 'custom' specials. A single is a double, a double is really a triple and, well, you get the idea; big and tasty. If that... More

After finding a geocache very close an ice cream was in order. A walk inside brought back the old days. Homemade ice cream and all sorts of candy. Yummy!!! Quick and very friendly service. Large scoops too.

On the way to our hotel, we saw this place and its long lines, so we couldn't pass it up. A quick u-turn landed us in a crowded parking lot with an even more crowded shop. But they pack a lot of goodies inside in addition to the beach-goers. Cones, sundaes, milkshakes, splits. The ice cream was a little too... More

I lived in walking distance to here, and I walked here often! Delicious ice cream, and if you enjoy old-fashioned candies like Mary Janes, this is the place for you. Sometimes there is a line but it moves well. Great ice cream drinks too. I love the face that nothing changes here. Very good, and very homespun.

We stopped by for an after dinner treat on a recent visit to the area. There were many delicious ice cream flavors to choose from and the servings are huge. I can't remember the name of the flavor I had but it was chocolate with brownie pieces in it, very good. The is also a large selection of candy available... More

I came back to Candy Kitchen after 15-years of not being in Madeira beach and it was like I never left. The guy serving us was hilarious and genuinely took an interest in us and our vacation. I had a waffle cone with single scoop of birthday cake ice cream. I had no idea a single scoop would be so... More
