Best chcolate malts ever

This place is a Galveston institution. The prices are high, but the quality is even higher. Tons of homemade candy. My granddaughter loves this place. The chocolate malts are huge and are probably about the best anywhere.

This is the place to go to for candy and old style ice-cream and soda bar. They even make their own saltwater taffy. Hurricane Ike tried to take them out with 7 feet of water but they came back stronger then ever. I'v been going here for years .

Every time when I go down to the Strand, I already stop by the La King's Confectionery. They have many favor of ice-cream and they are the best. If you go there in the afternoon, they even show you how they make the candies. Awesome place to bring with kid.

The taffy is good, the fudge is okay. What was disappointing was the fact that you don't get free samples of fudge to know which one you want to buy. Every fudge shop I've ever been in has offered at least one free sample...not here. You get free samples of taffy, just not fudge. So spending almost $10 on fudge... More

All the candy you would ever want and it's all in one place. I recommend you stop by after dinner. This is the place to ruin your appetite.

Stopped in with the family for some ice cream and this place was busy but employees moved quickly. The ice cream was delicious and the candied nuts were a big hit for us as well. There's chocolates and some novelty items too. Seating inside. Fun old soda shop.

This is definitely a place to visit if you are in the historical district of Galveston. There is something for everyone. Ice cream, real sodas, candy, chocolate and great coffee for the adults. Of course I didn't mention everything but it is such a neat place! During the day and weekend it can get crowded but it is worth it.... More

While in Galveston it was suggested that my husband and I to go to "La King's Confectionery" in The Strand, so glad we went. Looks like a business right out of, "Little House On The Prairie," just scaled much larger. My eyes were focused on the beauty of all the counters filled with home made candies. The candies were costly... More
