This place is reason enough to travel to Galveston.
If you love delectable sweets and amazing ice cream, welcome to heaven.
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!
If you're visiting the strand in Galveston, I highly recommend stopping here. Usually you can watch a confectioner make candy in front of you, the ice cream selections are delicious. Tons of chocolates and candies to cheese from in the shopping area. Highly recommend an ice cream scoop, banana split, or shake. Sometimes lines can make it to be a five to 10 minute wait.
Always good and always friendly. Hot fudge Sundaes are divine. Ice cream always pleases the kids. Glad the tables and chairs are back. Visiting La Kings is a must every trip! Never dissatisfied.
The largest candy store I have every been in. In fact, this is more than a store but a must stop for your visit to Galveston. They have a huge selection of in-house and externally made candy. In addition they have taffy pulling demonstrations, a classic milkshake bar, soda bar, and coffee bar. It’s a great stop for a little something sweet and a drink while you are downtown.
If you’re looking to satisfy your childhood wishes, time warp to La King’s confectionery. It’s a soda fountain and candy shop.
They serve ice cream, shakes, floats, fudge, candy and more. Take a seat and enjoy your treat, and take in the atmosphere as you travel back in time.
Their ice cream is homemade and my favorites are their specialty apple pie, peach pie & pumpkin pie. They add chunks of pie to the doIrecipe!!
If you go at the right time, you can catch the candyman hand-making saltwater taffy in front of your eyes! It is mesmerizing and always a show stopper! My kids always manage to get front row seats!
As I shared with my daughter, La King’s is a tradition for my husband and I. Now it’s a tradition we take pride in sharing with our loved ones. Hope you get to enjoy it as much as we do!
This place was very cool to experience, they had all kinds of sweet treats and it was a bit overwhelming but this is any candy lovers dream! The line for the ice cream was very long so I just got a float instead.
This is a fun place to go. Watch them make salt water taffy or peruse the store's excellent assortment of candies. The Taffy maker was informative and fun. It was quite an experience to watch the 100+ year old machine turn out the Taffy. Next we got their rich, creamy shakes. I got chocolate and my husband had strawberry. The best I've ever had!
Amazing experience - staying for the taffy demonstration was an amazing experience. The gentleman working with the taffy answered all of our random questions and was great with the kids (not to mention generous with samples). Oh they also sell tons of other candy and treats 😀. Would 100% recommend stopping here.
If you're in Galveston, La King's Confectionary IS A MUST! Watch fresh warm taffy being made and get one right from the fresh batch tossed out to you! They also make their own Ice cream upstairs!!
Sugar free candies, fudge and truffles are available as well. You can find real Malts, Cherry Phosphate Sodas (old drug store style) fresh popcorn and coffee!!
Do your inner child a favor and stop to make a memory here!! You'll never forget this place!
