When visiting Sanibel, a stop at Pinocchios for ice cream is an absolute MUST!! They have a huge variety of flavors with choices of sugar-free or sorbet as well. Over the several days my husband I stayed on the island, we tried six different kinds and were not disappointed by any of them. It's hard to pick a favorite. Be aware of the HUGE servings; two people can easily share a small and have plenty to eat. We typically ended our day here, and several others had the same idea. It does get busy at the end of the day, and the service was still friendly.

It was busy, which is a sign of awesome ice cream! The amount of ice cream and the taste is definitely worth the price. We will definitely return several times before we head home!

Love the Gator Stew, Sanibel Crunch, and every other flavor I've tried here.
Worth the short drive down by the lighthouse-end of Sanibel .
Addictive! Soooo good.
