Okay I guess I'm worse than a kid. I LOVE the fact I can pick out only the flavors I want. Of course when I go, I don't stop there. Always have to have ice-cream or a shake. Then there's the chocolate!! It's just a wonderful place!

This is a must-do while in Galveston. It's an old style confectionery that puts on a show while making salt water toffee. Just the smell when you walk in adds a pound to your body. The sound of clinking while everybody gobbles down the delicious ice cream treats from the real glass ice cream cups really adds to the experience... More

So many options. My daughter and I went down the right side. My husband and I went down the left. We all found something we liked. Difficult to move because of the crowd.

Good variety of candy and other edibles. Fun place for tourists and kids. Old Galveston atmosphere. Well worth going in and sampling.

Have been stopping here for years every time we go to Galveston. Everyone should find something here. Chocolate! Taffy they make there. Ice cream. Coffee.

Is what it says it is. Interesting flavors--I never had cinnamon ice cream before. Prices per scoop are a little steep--$3.50, so a large family becomes a little expensive quickly. But otherwise a nice find on the Strand.

Great ice cream and fun to watch them make sodas and milkshakes. Not to mention all the assorted candy to choose from and the taffy show.

Old time ice cream parlor with hand made salt water taffy. It's so fun to watch them make it if they're doing it while you're there. Unique candies, pretty story, and right on the strand so there's plenty to do.

I has an espresso/chocolate chip ice cream cone that was creamy goodness that can't be put into words. My husband ordered the dark chocolate covered potato chips and chocolate covered pretzels - they were divine! Also, we got to watch them pull taffy while we were there - it smelled so good!
