Amazing ice cream. Must stop in when in town. Too too many candies to choose from but mini gummi bears were great for my toddler. Family pended and very friendly staff.

Stopped in for a peek while walking the strand. Greeted at the door with a friendly and welcoming smile. It was a chocoholics paradise.

although you can get some of their treats online, fudge does not seem to be one of them. you may wish to contact them to see if they will ship this item. You can contact them at 409-762-6100.
