“Great Ice cream”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Great selection, no hesitation to let you sample until you figure out what flavor you want. We can't wait to go back.

“Not a Restaurant But a Great Candy/Ice Cream Shop”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Visited the 1st week of April and this is a great little place right next to the only theater in Atlantic Beach. They had +20 different flavors of ice cream (Hershey's creamery co., not affiliated with the chocolate Hershey's) and 12 different flavors of fudge that is made on site. The owner (I assume) was there the day we visited & allowed us (5 adults, 2 children) to sample to our heart's content. Same thing with the fudge. They have a fudge special, buy a lb, get a half pound free which allows u to get a nice size block of 6 samples of fudge. Ice Cream was very good and the fudge is outstanding - we tried the Orange Cream, Heath bar, Chocolate, Rocky Road, Butterfinger, and the Red Velvet, all of which we would get again. For a treat, this is the place to go in Atlantic Beach!

“Don't go in off season”
Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

We has been to this establishment twice the year before for the fudge- which is good. However, we had to make two trips due to not being open and when we went only half the ice cream was available (not the best selection of flavors ex Cotten candy and superman) but there were only 4 types if fudge to choose from ..... Sun chocolate butterfinger and two types with nuts..... We were very disappointed. As we made a special trip in for vanilla and peanut butter neither my husband or I like nuts in fudge and sun chocolate is boring - I appreciate the off season and the need to reduce inventory but if you are still advertising being a fudge shop and ice cream parlor then why only have a third of the normal inventory-

“Not friendly at all!!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Took my family to get ice cream. Service was like the soup Nazi on Seinfeld! Don't go to this place. Go to grocery store and get your ice cream.

“Every night”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We found this ice cream shop the first night we were there. We went each evening we were there. The staff was so friendly and remembered us each night and what we ate. Awesome place!
