All lovers of candy and home made ice cream should at least stick their head in here - they have all the candy you remember from your childhood, some of it packaged by the decade, ie, 70s, 80s, etc. Perhaps the highlight of the whole tiny shop is the washroom - it is papered floor to ceiling in candy wrappers!

They have all the good stuff, candy from the 80's bugs covered in chocolate . But the reason to go is the ice cream.

Traditional candy shop that seems to have been a mainstay of the beach area for decades. Finally visited appropriately at 10pm on Halloween. Friendly staff were closing but allowed us to select a supply of old skool candy that I'd never tried before. This place is always busy particularly with late night ice cream junkies.

Amazing ice cream and lots of it. Lots of flavours to chose from and look up at the ceiling when you walk in.

They have all sorts of candies, taffy and ice cream. The ice cream is home made and totally delicious! The building is very colorful and fun to walk in and explore.

A tiny shop but filled to the brim with all sorts of candy (current and retro), taffy, ice cream and fudge. The guy working was hilarious and we laughed a lot while getting our ice cream. I highly recommending stopping by, at least once!!

I went there because I wanted some ice cream late night and this was the only ice cream place open. They have lots of sweet treats and ice cream. I would go back there.

Little hole in the wall that's been there since 1950. Any kind of candy you can think of. Very colorful place to walk in to. They have ice cream too. And homemade fudge. You looking for a sugar rush on the beach this is it.
