They have all types of candy. They have demonstrations of taffy pulling. The ice cream is amazing. Unusual flavors. And everything is reasonably priced

One whole side of the store are display cases for candies, way way too many kinds, like that should ever be a problem? :-)) In the back they have a setup where the make and pull taffy, a couple times a day.

La King's has a huge assortment of candy. It's not a pick-you-own type candy store, but a full-service shop where you have to go to counters and ask an employee for what you want (and you have to buy at least a quarter pound -- so it's not a great option if your kids wanted to spend their pennies, as...

Love this place! The assortment of chocolates, candies and a soda counter with milkshakes, etc. is fabulous. It has never been so crowded that you couldn't be taken care of. Would highly recommend and it's a good place to chill for a little while you walk around the Strand.

This mainstay of the Strand in Galveston is the mecca for history buffs particularly those with a sweet tooth! It's a fabulous, non-glitzy emporium of the yummy past, and not to be missed if you are in Galveston!

The Duck Tour driver told us about this gem. We made it to a taffy pulling and the maker even tosses warm wrapped taffy to the crowd. This taffy is amazing! Our kids each got soda from the soda fountain. This is a must do. We just placed an order for taffy to be delivered to Nebraska
