“Great ice cream”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

The ice cream is all home made and both varieties we had were very tasty and creamy. The prices may be a bit high but the quality was top notch. We did not have any of the many types of chocolate because we wanted to get out of there while our clothes still fit.

“Sweet spot!”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

We stopped here twice for ice cream during our stay in Georgetown and came away happy both times.
This small shop is located on Front Street downtown. Lots of candy , chocolates and ice cream too. Both times it was busy, but it was worth the wait.
My wife got the Rum Raisin ice cream and that was LOADED with rum! Probably had more alcohol than some of the drinks at the bar the night before! Very good!
I got the choco cappuccino and it was also fantastic.
They have choices of two different types of cones or a cup. We went with the one scoop cup for $3 which was plenty for us.
When in Georgetown I would not miss this little spot.

“Don't pass up the Praeline ice cream”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Owned by Skip and Cindy who also own SC CARES, the candy and ice cream are sooooo good. I always walk out with a small scoop of Praeline ice cream that at most other ice cream shops would be considered the large size whether cup or cone. Their chocolates are fabulous and for Christmas one year I ordered many gift baskets by phone to be sent to friends all over the U.S.
Many of the proceeds go towards SC CARES upkeep, I never pass up an opportunity to visit Sweeties.

“Great sweets!”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

We were in Georgetown for the boat show and stopped for some sweets. The selection was a little overwhelming. I chose a variety to share later and all were delicious.
