This information page provides Anna Maria Island top ten ice cream shops. Well summer is here once again! Nothing is better than spending a day on the beach soaking up the warm Florida Sun, and swimming in the Gulf of Mexico. One of my favorite things to do after a day at the beach, and one of the best ways to cool down during the summer heat on Anna Maria Island is to grab an ice cream treat. So I spent the day traveling the Island in search of the best ice cream and candy treats in the area.
Looking for gourmet ice cream? Try Cold Stone Creamery just off Anna Maria Island. It is on the corner of Cortez
and 75th Street West in Bradenton, Florida. It shares the same building as Starbuck’s. Cold Stone’s claim to fame is there great creamy ice cream as well as creating special mixes within their ice cream. They use an ice cold slab to mix up ice cream with your favorite mixings. Berries, peanut butter cups, cookie pieces, M & M’s, you name it. The staff takes their great ice cream and with two scoops manually mixes in the extra’s. Our family loves the Birthday cake mix special which you guessed it, tastes just like birthday cake. It is fantastic.
