From River Street to St. Armands Circle

We put our Sarasota River Street Sweets • Savannah's Candy Kitchen location right on St. Armands Circle. Located on John Ringling Blvd, this charming street is filled with activities perfect for a vacation. Walk around St. Armands Circle for dining experiences, shopping and other outings. You'll take in the area's historic buildings decorated in beautiful pastel hues with gingerbread trim. We love that a sweet treat would show itself in the architecture! Plus, you'll always be entertained with festivals, live music, a tour train, a nature conservatory and other fun attractions. Of course, prepare to indulge in the tastes of this historic area. Before you enjoy our Sarasota Candy, try some pink shrimp, stone crabs, hogfish and other local seafood. And this is the perfect place to replace your sweet tea with a refreshing rum runner.

Stop In for Sarasota Candy During Your Beach Getaway

We brought our famous River Street Sweets • Savannah's Candy Kitchen to the southernmost tip of the United States in Sarasota, FL. Let's face it, even though the location is more south, the culture down here just isn't the same as in Savannah. That's why we needed to bring a taste of the Deep South to Florida. They were simply begging for our help. On top of bringing our southern roots, we provided a homemade sweet shop by the shore. Nothing beats stopping in for fudge, salt water taffy or other fine chocolate shop candy during a beach vacation. And when the days get hot, which they do year-round here in southern Florida, you can come in and cool down with decadent scoops of Sarasota ice cream.

Sarasota Ice Cream and St. Armands Circle Dessert

Don't fall prey to the temptation of the local dessert specialty, key lime pie. Instead, savor the flavors of the South with our pralines, pecan pie, key lime fudge, and other regional treats. Stop in for a few scoops of our delightful Sarasota ice cream and leave with treats to take home or gifts to send loved ones. Since St. Armands Circle is a historic area, our nostalgic candy shop fit right in. Did we mention everything is homemade? Because it is, just like in the old days. Come in and see how we make our Sarasota candy before you devour it!
