Southern Candy Store - Ice Cream in Pooler, GA

Cup of ice cream held up in front of Pooler candy store

No, you're not dreaming; although it is like a dream come to true to be able to buy ice cream in Pooler at the same time you purchase your fill of River Street Sweets • Savannah's Candy Kitchen, pralines, and saltwater taffy. That means you don't have to stand in line twice; first to buy your fill of homemade vacation-must saltwater taffy, then repeat the drill to buy ice cream down the street where people are lined up at another ice cream store. But it doesn't mean you won't face the difficult choice of what flavor suits your fancy today. In fact, you'll probably spend double the time; first, to decide which of our homemade confections suits your yen for sweets today -- pralines, glazed pecans, or saltwater taffy, then having settled on fudge instead you'll find yourself repeating the drill when you confront the list of down-home ice cream flavors -- from good old vanilla and dyed-in-the-wool southern banana pudding to decadent flavors like birthday cake or cookies-n-cream, full of delicately crunchy chocolate crumbs.

But if it's crunch you're yearning for, no doubt about it, you'll have to go with rocky road. Let your eyes wander a bit further and the plot thickens, and you'll freeze in place - gelato! Perhaps it's gelato you're looking for. And if so, which decadent flavor to go with? Cool refreshing key lime pie? Rich creamy tiramisu? Or our signature pralines-n-cream?

And as you leave our franchise, having fulfilled that no vacation is complete unless you buy ice cream, fudge, and saltwater taffy obligation, sit on a bench and consider how lucky you are to be in Pooler here and now, participating in our history; a that harkens back to1978 when the wondrous sight of a pot of freshly-made fudge at an Atlanta trade show sparked an obsession for making fudge in an eight-year-old boy. That boy would not take no for an answer and that's how River Street Sweets • Savannah's Candy Kitchen came to be. Fudge gave way to saltwater taffy, which gave way to pralines, and so on, and so on. And now ice cream is the new product on the block -- literally if you're talking about ice cream in Pooler. So the next time you find yourself in Pooler asking yourself if there's someplace I can buy ice cream near me, look no further than our block.
