All the penny candy from your youth with the best ice cream you've EVER had in your life housed in a small, blockhouse, one-room store served by the most fun young people you['re going to see on this trip! YOU MUST go the Candy Kitchen! Don't be afraid of the constant long line-it's TOTALLY worth the shot wait!

Moderately priced for beach ice cream, decent serving size, very patient service staff, and too many choices of ice cream! A must-go spot if you are in the area. I suggest going early in the day as the place is tiny and evenings get crowded.

The Candy Kitchen is a sweet little shop that sells ice cream, nostalgic candy and hard to find sodas. The prices are good and the portions are perfect. Best chocolate malted I've had in a long time. If it's summertime and you get a hankering for ice cream be prepared for a line that wraps around the building. It's worth... More

Don't let your childhood memories of all your favorite candy distract you from the main fare at Candy Kitchen, the fantastic Ice Cream. Sure go ahead and buy candy dots, wax lips, sugar babies and Swedish fish but do not miss out on the flavorful selection of ice cream. Nothing beats Candy Kitchen's Ice Cream, especially on a hot Florida... More

The staff is amazingly well trained and sweet to everyone that comes in despite the insanity that goes in in their days. We go here every year we're in town visiting. We stay across the street. It's a complete hole in the wall local candy watering spot. Super fun for the kids - they love the excitement of the crowd... More

Who doesn't love ice cream?? Cute little shop with decent prices! Good size portions also! Lots of flavors to decide from. Also a good choice of fudge and the usual "kid friendly" candies there.

Hard ice cream. Three kind of cones or get a dish. Three nice size choices or go for a shake or float. Great old fashion candy choices or fresh fudge selections. Reasonably priced.

The homemade ice cream was very good and the portion sizes are huge. I am glad that I saw what someone in front of me ordered so I could order down one size. The ice cream is homemade and tasted good, I have had better but this was good. The best part of the visit, was the staff. The gentleman... More
