Suger fix

Loved filling our bellies with something sweet here! Took some of the taffy home to enjoy later. It was a nice place to visit with our son. He liked riding the little horse and boat.

Our family always visits La Kings when visiting Galveston but this was the first time we got to see the taffy pull show and it was great!

We stopped here on a Tuesday afternoon, and the place was insanely busy. It was loud inside, and there were long lines at the candy counters. If you can get past all that, it has a unique old fashioned atmosphere, friendly employees, and high quality products. The fudge was the best I have ever eaten. I have not been around... More

I bring my family here each time we visit Galveston Island. They are almost always making fresh taffy on machines 100+ years old. What an art! You will see the candy makers turning it, coloring, twisting, flavoring the giant taffy, putting it into machines that cut and wrap each piece. Then watch out because they are known to throw freshly... More

Every year when my grandchildren come in, we ALWAYS visit La King's. Now it is a tradition that we all look forward to even though they are all now teenagers! A little costly, but very much worth it. the ice cream treats take you back to childhood and the candy selection is vast.

Wanted to try absolutely everything. Loved the retro style, but didn't care for the gentleman manager or owner yelling at everyone to "Move to the left!" but it was very crowded. Can't wait to go back.

I thought that we would just stop in for a Milkshake but ended up getting an education as well as a mouth watering chocolate malt ! There's so much to choose from if you have a sweet tooth and the aroma here is unbelievable. There are so many candies and chocolates in an expansive variety, I just don't see how... More

Extremely crowded but we'll run by staff. Servings of ice cream and malts and shakes are very large! The malts are sumptuous op and ice cream heavenly. More varieties of candy and fudge than. I have ever seen.
