I love the Candy Kitchen, but even more so since my grandson started working there. We have always loved their homemade ice cream and all of the variety of candy. We visit everytime we are in the area

We enjoy this candy store very much. They have all of you nostalgic candy from your childhood. The service is always upbeat and positive no matter how busy it gets. The seating out front is a nice touch. Great homemade ice cream and fudge.

We stopped by after lunch for Italian Ice, the man working 10/6 was so nice. We loved looking at the retro candy, games and the Nehi soda.

Took the kids here, they & the wife all loved it, what a blast from the past with all the candy from the 60's thru today. Ice cream was truly exceptional! Go to this place, you will love it.

We went to candy kitchens and it was not very good. We had the ice cream chocolate fudge there and it was sweet but like blehhh kinda sweet. We would prefer going to McDonald because they have much better mc flurrys.

We have been to other locations on previous trips, first time at this location. Same delicious ice cream, same great candy selection as other stores! Still a favorite!

This place is an iconic candy store. Ice-cream is home made, service is excellent, and the fudge is to die for! Great for all ages! (make sure you go to the dentist after your visit)

My grandmother would take me to the original in Redington Beach every weekend. Brought back great memories and I was impressed that the staff knew the history. Shared special memories with my son and husband. The rocky road still amazing and creamy. Always a line...More

I have had the pleasure of visiting here numerous times during our vacations. It is simply a "must-do" while visiting either location. That being said, we have recently moved to the area after visiting for years and it's one of the first places we stopped....More

I don't know, but the shop is small, There were 7 people in our party plus maybe 4 other people in the shop, and we were very crowded. They did have picnic tables to sit at outside to eat.
