“Yummy ice cream and candy treats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This is in The Strand area and is like stepping into the 1920's. Wonderful calorie novelties or just get a dish of their many flavors of ice cream. Worth the stop!

“Cutest little candy store:)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This place is a must see while in Galveston. The homemade ice cream is delish and the candy offering insane!:) Never in my life would I have expected to see chocolate covered gummy bears!:) The taffy is great too. It is very busy and hard to find a seat, but if you are in the area, you have to stop here. It can bring out the kid in anyone:)

“Candy and Ice Cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

This place can get crazy busy, but the taffy show is neat to watch, the candy is good and the ice cream is divine, and a good price. Its always the last place we hit before leaving just so the taffy doesn't melt while we wander the strand

“Very Nice, Old Timey Soda Shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Went to this place based on previous reviews and wasnt disappointed. They have hundreds of different types of candy, ice cream by the cup or by the cone, root beer floats, old time soda shop flavors. I had the Vanilla Dr. Pepper and it was wonderful. Highly recommend no doubt. Plenty of nice shops in the area as well. Worth the trip.

“So AWESOME....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We absolutely love this place. We visit it every time we make our way down to Galveston. There is so much candy. You could go into a diabetic coma just walking in the door. There is ice cream, coffee, and the taffy is the best. This is a must when visiting Galveston...you'll love it.
