Always a favorite stop when vacationing Sanibel Island. All the flavors are delicious but nothing beats the Sanibel Crunch-yum!!!

We make a visit to Pinocchio's every year. The ice cream is wonderful. The reason I didn't rate it excellent is because the store is too small and does not accommodate a crowd...and it is always crowded. I recommend going a little later in the evening when it's not quite as busy.
