Best Ice Cream Value in Town
The best ice cream value I’ve found in Fort Myers Beach, Florida comes from an unlikely place. The Goodz advertises itself as the “everything” store. It’s our local hardware store….and souvenir shop…and beach gear shop…and ice cream parlor! It’s rare to find a store where you can buy hammers, nails, PVC pipe, fashion sunglasses, beach umbrellas and also pick up an ice cream milkshake!
The Goodz sells Southwest Florida-produced Love Boat Homemade Ice Cream. For just under $4 including tax, you can get a small cup of your two favorite flavors. The Goodz offers 34 Love Boat flavors of ice cream and sorbets, including sugar-free and dairy-free options.
Ice Cream Flavor Selections
If you aren’t sure what your taste buds will truly enjoy, just ask for a sample. When you have your choices made, then you’ll need to decide if you want further enhancements.
Ice Cream Creations
The Goodz makes their own waffle cones. Andy’s favorite is the chocolate dipped waffle cone rolled in nuts. I can be pretty sure that at least one of the flavors in his cone contains peanut butter cups. I stick to a cup of ice cream without any additional treats because I truly enjoy the flavorful ice cream and I want to savor every creamy spoonful. My favorite flavors are Banana Cream Pie and Chocolate Covered Strawberry.
Banana Cream Pie Ice Cream
You can also treat yourself to sundaes with a variety of sauces and toppings. Or maybe it’s a malt or root beer float that fits your mood.
Sit or Travel with Ice Cream
Enjoy your treat at the inside tables giving you a chance to read all the posters exclaiming the wonders of ice cream and watch as anxious kids peek into the ice cream coolers. Or take your sweet dessert to the front porch of The Goodz, sit on a rocking chair and watch as people travel by on Estero Boulevard.
I’ve learned that I’ll finish my 2 scoop cup by the time I turn onto Mango Street on my 4/10 mile leisurely stroll back to our Beach Delight vacation rental. A few steps more and I’m back at Beach Delight wearing a big smile. In my heart, I know I must have burned all the ice cream calories on that walk!
You’ll find The Goodz at 1741 Estero Blvd, Fort Myers Beach, FL 33931
