“Fun place, great selection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

A must stop on the Strand. Tons of selection in both chocolate and other sweet things plus ice cream parlor. They even have demos of candy making.

“So much candy, so little time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

This is such a fun place to visit ! As soon as you open the door , time slows down and you are transported back to a 1950's soda shop. There is candy every place you look and if you're lucky you can even catch a demonstration of them making salt water taffy on machines that are over 100 years old! Everyone is super friendly and everything is delicious ! They have a whole wall of chocolate covered everything! They also sell homemade ice cream that is super yummy! Our kids are 12 and 13 and our parents are 79 and 80 and everyone loved this place! We spent over two hours here just eating ice cream, relaxing, and watching them make the taffy .

“Largest selection ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Rows and rows of chocolate and other candies we've never seen. We got the chocolate covered potato chips and sea turtles with a milk shake, all amazing

“Awesome time at!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Went to La Kings Confectionary for my sons 5th birthday. Had a lovely time. He wanted an orange ice cream soda and loved it. My oldest just wanted an orange soda and said it was also very good. My mother and I both had café mocha with a shot of expresso and it was the best we had ever had.

“Infrequent Taffy Demos, Tourist-trap Feel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Overall this place was disappointing, but not terrible.

We brought our family because we wanted salt water taffy and they advertised that you can see them make the taffy right there. Well, we went over the weekend and apparently they weren't doing a demo until 4 PM! That was hours away and obviously this isn't something you really want to wait around for. So it's not like you can just show up at any time and expect to see them working their craft.

We got some assorted taffy in the little treasure box. Overall, it was not very good taffy. Just totally average.

We'll be trying another candy shop next time we go to Galveston.
