I stopped in to get my boyfriend some rock candy. The place is small, but they have homemade ice cream, shakes, malts, and frozen desserts! The retro candies that they carry are hard to find anywhere else. I was ecstatic to find candy that I haven't seen since I was a kid, especially wax lips! Very reasonably priced!

Locally owned ice cream and candy shop. Kids will go crazy, but parents to age 90 will see candy from their childhood. All you hear is "I loved those!". Ice cream is all locally hand made and fun. Priced very reasonably, but beware of a "regular" which is huge. Beware lines, but moves along and allows time to oogle candy.

This store is so much fun! It may be small, it may be dingy, but it's a super enjoyable blast from the past, and I mean... wall to wall candy!? No brainer. They have tons of house made items and local specialties like delicious ice cream, fudge, salt water taffy, and frozen chocolate peanut butter bananas. As well as nostalgia... More

A classic! Small space, huge selection of candy (most of which you probably haven't seen in years) and great ice cream. The quality was just ok but it was an experience and the kids loved it.

We stop in here often to get some candy goods, they have a large selection of sweets to choose from, sometimes the line runs outside around the block where folks wait a long time to their sweets. This place will keep you coming back for more sweets like we do, check them out you will be happy that you did.

We loved all the retro candies that we had forgotten about! The place is small but it has everything you would want at a candy shop. The ice cream and service was great! Wish they didn't close so early but most of the stores at Madeira closed by 10pm.

Best fudge, ice cream all homemade. If your poking for candy or sodas from your childhood they will have it. It is a great place.

We visit Florida every year and we never miss this place. It is a tiny shop with a ton of choices. They have candy, ice cream, fudge and my favorite... peanut butter filled bananas dipped in chocolate! My son loves going here every year and can never decide what he wants once we are there. They have new candy as... More
