Run by mother and daughter Caroline and Toni Dawson, this chocolate shop on Largs' main street has a large selection of confectionery including biscuits, old fashioned sweets, slabs of branded chocolate and gift wrapped boxes. In addition to a shelf of wine and a window of jewellery (for last minute presents). The chocolate counter is supplied by the Arran Chocolate Factory topped up with selected Belgian makers. Geraldo's Ice Cream (named in remembrance of Toni's father) is made on the premises and often incorporates sweets from the shop.

This delightful shop in Largs is owned by mother and daughter, Caroline and Toni Dawson. Recognised by Visit Scotland as a four star tourist shop, they stock the largest range of specialist confectionery in Ayrshire and have a growing range of craft gins, malt whiskies and Scottish liqueurs.

The shop was established in 2000 under its former name, Sugar & Spice. Since then, Toni has been creating Geraldo’s ice cream which is manufactured on-site. Named after her late father, Geraldo’s has won numerous awards for Toni’s creative flavour combinations. In November 2016 Toni decided to rebrand her shop. Geraldo's, the name of her ice cream, became her shop name too.

Whether it’s a little treat to enjoy during your visit to the town or a beautifully packaged confectionery gift, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Open 7 days all year round (except Christmas Day and New Year’s Day).
