Can't visit the strand without stopping here. I love love love the assortment of all the candy. Such a helpful and friendly staff...They are always so patient with me while I decide which confectionery I get to enjoy. My goal is to try every candy at the counter...It will take a while but it's a labor of love!

Step back into a time when ice cream, toffee, soda fountains and vintage candies ruled the day. We take for granted the candy and ice cream selections we have today but there was a time when a trip to the soda fountain or ice cream parlor was something that was considered a special treat. La King's Confectionery is a blast... More

We enjoyed a scoop of ice cream, watched taffy being made and got free samples of taffy. Best was the dark chocolate/raspberry cream candy we bought. Very busy place. Located on west end of The Strand.

I love visiting this place on Galveston trips! They have any candy imaginable and offer gift sets, which are great for sampling different sweets. Love the taffy!

If you are a candy or ice cream lover you will feel like you've reached heaven at this place. Tried both the dark chocolate sea salt caramel and one of the many ice cream flavors. Definitely will be going back here if we make it to Galveston again.

I've been here several times in the last 30+ years but this is my first review of La King's. If it's sweet, they probably have it. The old-fashioned soda fountain serves up fresh ice cream sodas and other great drinks from days gone by. Coffee is good and served just about any way you can imagine. The ice cream is... More

Really enjoyed our visit here, so much to absorb initially. Ice cream was delicious with large portion size. I had a one scoop tub which must of had 4 scoops of ice cream in. Rocky road choice was delicious. We watched some Salt Water Taffy being made which was interesting to see, plus we were able to sample it. Its... More
