If you don’t, this place can change your mind.
We go to La King's every time we're on the island. The ice cream candy and sodas are fantastic! Took friends this trip and made it for the taffy making. Put this place on your, "Must do" list!
This is a must see and experience in Galveston. This little shop offers assistance to visitors with handicaps with an evaluation after you get inside. However there is no assistance outside to get inside. There is seating offered to enjoy any of the beverage, ice cream, or sweet treat selections they have to offer. The team members are extremely friendly and very good at staying attentive to visitors. There are purchase stations located throughout the store.
The selection of treats and drinks is incredible. Fudge, soft candles, chocolates, old fashion sodas, and so much more. There is a selection of sweets for anyone even sugar free and gluten free choices. This was the best shop in Galveston.
It's a cute little shop. The ice cream is really good. I personally don't think they had a wide assortment of candy. There are definitely more baked goods like fudge than there is candy. They have a small popcorn station and I coffee bar. I'll have to try those next time I'm on the island.
I heard about La King's Confectionery while searching for places to check out in Galveston and The Strand. The shop is definitely a nod to times gone past as there are not many places left around that are like this anymore. La King's still serves ol' time sode floats the way they originally did way back in the day, by spooning out the syrup and mixing it with the soda water. I chose a root beer float and it was very nice and refreshing after strolling around the Strand for a while. There's every kind of candy and chocolate imaginable in La King's Confectionery. If you're looking for a nostalgic experience, stop by and enjoy some of their wonderful goods.
This is a very expansive candy shop. They have every kind of candy you can think of. They also have ice cream. You can even watch them make some of the candy. I had the silver dollar candies. They were amazing. MY oldest had the salt water taffy and really enjoyed it. The youngest had gummy sharks. Of course he thought they were really cool. This is a great place to stop and help your sweet tooth out.
We adored this spot. Came on a super hot late July afternoon, and it was nice and cool inside. They had an enormous selection of candies, gummies, homemade taffy, and special ice cream. An old-time soda fountain and plenty of space to hang out and cool down.
Absolute Fun! Taffy, Chocolate, Ice Cream, Coffee... 🍦
...Fudges, packaged candies, and basically all the treats you can think of! 🍫
It's only pricey if you buy a ton, just get a little baggie for walking The Strand; and you'll be just fine. ☺️
This place is fantastic. It feels like you went back in time to a soda fountain! I didn't try the taffy, but I heard it was great. I had some of the homemade fudge and ice cream which was SO GOOD! I washed it down with a local bottled root beer, and my day was complete. Trust me you won't be disappointed. That is if you love sweets and all. 😉
We really love this place. Anytime we are near Galveston, we always stop by. I usually get a vanilla shake and a homemade lemonade. My wife got ice cream this time. We will get candy and chocolate and take some back for the kids. I have been going to this place since probably the late 70s or early 80s when I was in high school. I have taken my kids and now my grandkids. They all enjoy the wide variety of snacks to get.
YUMMY ICE CREAM!!! Do not eat the blue bell ice cream nearby, but instead, eat at this old fashioned ice cream parlor!! Best flavor has got to be the Banana Walnut. I’ve tried the Cookie Dough and the French Vanilla, but they taste plain when being compared to the Banana Walnut flavor. If you love bananas and walnuts like I do, or anything generally delicious, you have to get the Banana Walnut! At first, I was like, $5 for one scoop is kind of a lot! But don’t be fooled! The scoop is humungous. I couldn’t finish it on my own haha. Yet, it’s so worth it! Absolutely perfect for a hot day.
Love that they provide a big scoop (enough for two!) for one! Not only can you get ice cream at this top but there are refreshments and assortments of toffee/chocolate/candies in this building!
