We love Candy's! Their homemade hard ice cream really can't be beat!! Our favorite flavors are Milky Way, Bittersweet, Cookies and Cream, and Key Lime Pie! They have so many flavors to choose from! They also carry many flavors of ice - the apple cider is so yummy. There are always 4 types of soft cream and many more combinations... More

Consistent good and a huge selection of ices and creams. Waffles are in Tuesday and they are so worth the wait. Love that you can request a custom combination of toppings in the Candy Swirl.

Their ice cream is good and the lemon Italian ice is one of my favorites. Nice little family owned place. You might have to stand in line, they get quite busy. Not open in the winter, so it is always fun to look forward to the opening in spring.

Candy's has awesome ice cream. Too many flavors to try them all, but I do recommend the Red Velvet it is really good!!! I usually want all kinds of extras in my ice cream but not needed from here. They also have waffles on Tuesdays!!

Everything I have tried tastes wonderful. Everyone who works there is extremely friendly. The facility is also very cleanly. I love the peanut butter soft serve.

Candy's has an amazing array of homemade ice cream/Italian ice to choose from and some pretty off the wall flavors (bacon, jalapeño, lavender). My favorite is the sinfully chocolate ice cream. It is delicious! Their portions are spot on and will keep you coming back. The biggest downside is the location and lack of parking. It can get pretty crazy... More

We are looking forward to visiting this season. I saw they reopened from their winter hiatus. There are way too many ice cream flavors to mention and many are way outside the box. Plus, Candy makes them, as in home-made. There are lots of ices to choose from. She has different cones, toppings, and other ice cream novelties. And they... More
