“Best ice cream in Bonita Springs”
Review of For Heaven Shakes

For Heaven Shakes
Ranked #4 of 11 Dessert in Bonita Springs
Restaurant details
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Almond Joy ice cream is the best. Don't be fooled by the other fancy named flavors, or ice cream emporiums just because they're down toward the beach, and make everybody think their ice cream is better just because they have two serving lines. Right there in the middle of Bonita Springs, you can get an ice cream that has a creamy texture, outstanding real coconut flavor, swirls of chocolate, and plenty of almonds. The other store may have the reputation, but their coconut has NO chocolate OR almonds. Nuts to them. (Heavens' Shakes has other flavors, too.)

Bonita has several award winning ice cream shops ..........here is a tiny local Old Bonita ice cream shop that deserves your patronage. Located on OLD 41 north of Bonita Beach Road it deserves a stop just for the "Captain's Chocolate" and the Strawberry Ice Cream Take a pass on Royal Scoops or Handels for one night (I love them both) and come over here for some equally great ice cream you will not be disappointed.

Captain's Chocolate and garbage plus orange soft serve were great today, nice cone selection and very good flavors make this shop a Bonita Springs landmark.

Best ice cream in town and a much better bang for the buck than the Royal Scoop. Large variety of favors and good service. Anyone visiting Riverside Park should make this a stop on the way home

Okay, I miss Sammy Fariello's Confectionery in Amsterdam, NY (www.feriellos,com), but this fit the bill for now. The selection was broad, including key lime which was so good, the lime didn't kill you - reminded me of a cheesecake I made with lime instead of lemon (recipe from Foodnetwork.com). The man was so friendly, and their dog next door (gift & flower shop attached via glass door) & his sister, Lily were so cute! Check their hours, in the off season they closed at 9pm. The ice cream was so good, I never did get around to trying a sundae, so I cannot recommend or decline recommendation for one. For ice cream this good, I was surprised at the affordability.
