Whenever you need to satisfy your sweet tooth, you can come down to Sugarland Candy and Ice Cream in Destin to pick up your favorite treats. They have an amazing array of candies plus 44 flavors of ice cream and so much more. Using your selected ice cream flavors, they can whip you up a sundae, milkshake, float, or simply throw a scoop or two in a waffle cone or cup. Their topping options are equally plentiful with many coming straight from their candy display.

If you would like to branch out a bit, they have four flavors of smoothies along with snow cones available in a dozen flavors from cotton candy to sour apple. For something altogether different, you can choose from their various types of gourmet popcorn, bags of chips, and other savory delights.

When all those treats leave you feeling quite thirsty, they can also help you out with their soft drinks and specialty coffees. They only serve locally-roasted coffee varieties, highlighting some of the best beans found across the region.

Their most popular items include:

Their sundaes always begin with a generous scoop of your ice cream flavor of choice. Then, they pour over chocolate fudge and top it with chopped walnuts and whipped cream. A cherry on top completes the experience, beautifully complementing the decadent flavors lying underneath. Additional toppings are also available for an extra fee.

Made using your favorite ice cream flavors, their milkshakes will leave your taste buds dancing with delight. Choose one or more types of ice cream from the case and watch in wonder as they blend it all to perfection. You will receive the shake in a large cup that you can take on the go and sip on at your leisure.

Available in four tasty flavors, the smoothies are definitely worth a try. You can choose from peach, mango, banana, and strawberry flavors — or even elect to mix two flavors for a bit more. Like the milkshakes, the smoothies are served in a disposable cup, so you can take it and go wherever your heart desires.

Snow Cones
As they make each one with care, the snow cones never disappoint, boasting big flavor from the first taste to the last bite. They are available in 12 awesome flavors, including cherry, raspberry, pineapple, banana, and watermelon. Although there is only one size, they pile the paper cone as high as possible with shaved ice before pouring over the syrup to the brim.

Along with their commitment to creating cold treats with care, much of their store is dedicated to housing all their amazing candy flavors. Along their walls, they have rows and rows of bins filled with hard candies and gummies from yesterday and today.

Then, along their glass display cabinet, they have handcrafted chocolate treats of all kinds, including almond brittle, chocolate-covered strawberries, and truffles galore. They will gladly load up a box of your favorites to snack on right then or take home to share. They are also always ready to create beautifully-wrapped gift boxes filled with your favorite candy selections.
