Here are some of our recommendations:

Sprinkles Ice Cream and Sandwich ShopPalm Beach.  According to an article by Nicole Danna for the New York Times (Broward & Palm Beach Editions), “Since 1984 this Palm Beach ice cream shop has been dishing out some of the best homemade ice cream in Palm Beach County.  Founded by mother-daughter team Eve and Therese Williams, today owner Donna Marks — who purchased the shop in October of 2000 — continues to sell more than 20 flavors of specialty ice cream, over a dozen floats and shakes, as well as a wide-ranging menu that includes smoothies, salads, sandwiches — even flatbread pizza.  Located smack dab in the center of Palm Beach Island’s downtown hub, the shop has seen many a celebrity over the years, serving the likes of Michael Jackson, Rod Stewart, Jimmy Buffet, Robert Kraft, Brooke Shields, Hoda Kotb, Glenn Beck and, of course, Donald Trump.  The publicity doesn’t stop there, however; in 2002, People® magazine voted Sprinkles’ Triple Chocolate Supreme — a combo of rich chocolate ice cream with chocolate chips — the #1 ice cream in America.  The most recent addition to the Sprinkles menu lineup: a gourmet coffee bar, where fresh-ground beans are used for made-to-order lattes and cappuccinos.”

Kilwin’s Chocolate and Ice CreamJupiter, Stuart, and several other South Florida locations.  According to their website, “Since 1947 Kilwins has been a celebrated part of Americana having earned a reputation for providing high quality products and excellent service.  Our heritage was built on the simple premise of creating our products from the finest ingredients and providing customers with great service.  Today we continue the tradition by uniquely combining high quality products with a warm friendly customer experience that is supported through a successful community of caring owner operators.  We continue to offer the finest quality, traditional down-home confections, and ice creams that are kitchen-made fresh from premium ingredients and original recipes.”

Hoffman’s Chocolates and Ice CreamStuart, Greenacres, and several other South Florida locations.  According to their website, “40 years ago in a small chocolate shop in Lake Worth, Florida, Paul Hoffman purchased a small candy shop so that he and his family could work in the business together.  Paul combined his love of creating new products with his extensive cooking experience to begin his illustrious career making award-winning confections.  Word of his confectionary masterpieces spread, and soon Hoffman’s Chocolates built a devoted following.

The Hoffman family made a commitment to use only the finest and freshest ingredients from around the world and these standards have never been compromised.  Much care and attention goes into each and every confection.  Preparation is carefully monitored, from mixing and cooking the ingredients, to measuring and cutting the pieces.  Each luscious confection is hand made using time honored traditions of candy making.”
