If you’re craving for delicious ice cream, candy and sweet treats, go and check out Ricky’s Candy, Cones & Chaos. Ricky’s is located at 155 E. Lancaster Ave. in Wayne, Pa.

“It’s the best candy store in the world. I felt like a little kid when I walked in there. It was great. The walls are covered with bins full of gummy bears, gummy worms, gummy sharks, sour coated candies and lollipops. You can buy candy by the pound and mix all your favorite candy together,” Meaghan Conroy, sophomore psychology major said.

Ricky’s carries popular sugary favorites like Fun Dip, Laffy Taffys, Nerds and Sweet Tarts. Ricky’s even has a whole section with dozens of different types of bubble gum.

Frank Bearoff, sophomore biology major, said, “They have all the candies you can’t find in any other stores anymore like

War Heads, Zero Bars and Abba Zabbas.”

The store doesn’t just stop at candy. Ricky’s also sells fresh ice cream with 18 different flavors such as Snickers, Smurf, Moose Tracks, Butterfinger, cotton candy, blackberry chip and butter pecan to name just a few.

Erin Jaskiewicz, junior exercise science and health promotions major, works at Ricky’s and said the most popular ice cream flavor definitely is cake batter and Smurf. “We always need to keep a large supply of that on hand. The price ranges start with a small cone at $3.45 up to $5.50.”

Jaskiewicz said, “Every ice cream order comes with free toppings. You also can make your own sundaes and create your own milkshakes or floats with any flavor you want.”

Ricky’s has frozen treats like chocolate covered bananas, chocolate covered Rice Krispie treats, chocolate covered Twinkies along with candy sushi.

You can also choose gift baskets ready made for your friends, coworkers and family.

Ricky’s makes themed baskets for holidays, birthdays and chocolate lovers too. Gift baskets found in the store can be purchased online as well.
