We visited Harlans every day we were on the island. The icecream, while pricey was excellent. The variety of chocolate and candies offered are pretty awesome. It was fun to look at everything and buy some for the road. A must visit!

Purchased the salty carmel and the peanut butter gelato. Both were delicious. Also purchased Easter goodies and St Patrick's day goodies.

We enjoyed our stroll through this little chocolate store very much. They have some unique chocolate items. Some are a bit "pricie"; the things we bought were very, very good. So good we went back for a second round!

The staff at Harlans make the best of the best chocolate goodies and their array of licorice is amazing. Buy a big bag of the soft licorice; it is so good.

Really enjoyed the raspberry Gelato but unable to find another flavor that we wanted to try. One member of our party had the last scoop of passion fruit and rest the raspberry. There were abt 20 sweet flavors but I prefer tart flavors thus raspberry.

This candy and gelato shop has wonderful gelato. The salted caramel gelato is the best of its kind I've ever enjoyed. It's very hard to get the salt ratio right in this in vogue flavor, but they get it exactly right here. All the gelato...More

They've been there since 1980 and are one of the most popular places to visit but for some reason they don't come up in your listings.
