Taffy Pull!

In a word? Ah-MAZE-ing. La Kings (pronounced "Lah King's, not L.A. King's) is an attraction within itself. The canes and treats are displayed in the most beautiful vintage wood display cases, and the whole place looks like an old time soda fountain.

The kids thought this place was awesome. Reminded mom & dad of there younger days as well. Enjoyed selection of candies, soda fountains, ice cream, etc. Just about everything for a walk back in history. Watch the taffy being wrapped and catch one (or more) for a quick taste. Fun for our entire family. Thank you!

I was devastated when I thought hurricane Ike took this place out. I was worried they would not comeback... But they did.. So glad... It is a really neat place in the historic Strand area.. Old time Malt Shoppe and a huge candy store with pulled taffy made onsite... Need place! A must see when in Galveston..

Everything we have ever tried here is delicious, from the candies to the coffee. Even if you don't have a sweet tooth, you can go in the old fashioned candy store and check out the taffy equipment in the back, and maybe catch a free demonstration. This is a nice place to take a break when checking out the Strand.

Normally the candy products are fresh - not quite as fresh this visit. The ice cream and malts are always good along with the fizzy drinks.

If you love chocolate (and who doesn't) this is the place to stop and shop. A chocolate lovers paradise. And if other kinds of sweets are your delight - stick around for the taffy pull, the orange slices, or the ice cream sundaes. The perfect treat.
