Welcome to our fabulous Shop

Our family run ice cream and sweet shop in Troon, Ayrshire is the headquarters for our confectionery business. Michele, Geraldine and our wonderful staff team (not to mention the kids!) are always busy selling sweets the old fashioned way in large jars.

A particular favourite of our customers is our selection of homemade chocolates which we sell by weight or packaged in lovely presentation boxes.

In our sweet shop, we also stock a fantastic selection of confectionery such as fudge, tablet, Troon rock, Edinburgh rock and candy dummies (if you happen to be going down to the beach, we also have an assortment of buckets and spades!).

Some of the delicious brands of sweets we have include Beeches, Fergusons and James of Arran amongst others.

Through the back of the sweet shop is where the magic happens! This is where Michele produces his delicious selection of ice creams. In the small ice cream factory, he creates wonderful Michele Mancini ice cream with flavours such as vanilla, strawberry, mint choc chip, chocolate and, one of our best sellers, Scottish tablet.

These are available to buy in-store accompanied by cones, wafers, nougat wafers, oysters, sponges and in 1/2 litre, 1 litre and 2 litre tubs. And of course you can have it all topped off with raspberry sauce!

All the ice creams produced at The Ice Cream Factory are also available to buy wholesale and many businesses across Ayrshire take full advantage of these delicious products for their own customers.

The very same ice creams and confectionery that we have in our sweet shop are used when you hire our ice cream carts, vans or candy carts so you can be assured of the finest quality ingredients and fabulous taste when you choose one of our services for your wedding, event or show.
