This little jewel is worth the trip if you are anywhere from more head to swansbourgh sitting in a little shopping strip on Atlantic Beach. It serves the best ice cream we were able to find.

The title says it all. It must have changed ownership, not as friendly as it use to be. Not only do they have ice cream, they have a candy selection and good fudge.

My son is crazy about Superman ice cream which is very hard to find. They have it and he had 3 very generous scoops! They also have fudge and saltwater taffy! ❤️❤️❤️

We always go to AB Ice Cream when we are at Atlantic Beach. Staff is always friendly and willing to let you try new flavors before buying them.

AB Ice Cream & Candy is a small ice cream shop with a friendly and helpful staff. Prices are reasonable and quantities good. Multiple flavored and sizes and styles to chose from. Their fudge is awesome too.

After we had dinner out, my husband and I decided to have something sweet. We are glad we chose this ice cream shop. There was such a variety of flavors, it was difficult to make a decision.
