When my husband and I first walked in there was a guy making taffy on the old taffy machine. He was throwing them out to the big crowd of people and as we walked up we caught a few pieces of warm vanilla taffy. We also purchased an assorted box of taffy and chocolates that tasted so good. We will... More

Come for the taffy pull, stay for the coffee and ice cream bar. It has 2 squished penny machines (I can't be the only person that loves these stupid things). Amazing selection of candies and chocolates. I'm dying to try the cordial cherries, but I think that's going to be my contribution to Christmas this year. Makes me feel like... More

Wonderful place on a hot, hot humid day in Galveston. We watched how they make Taffy. Our flavor was grape! The little ones (ages 5 and 7) were interested from beginning to end! The confectioner threw out free samples of the still warm delight!

Great candy made on site and really good ice cream. The taffy is a must have. It is definitely one of the most charming shops on the strand.

Whether you want coffee or ice cream, toffee or taffy, La King's has it. The kids appreciated the stop there and enjoyed a free piece of taffy made in view on the century plus old piece of taffy making equipment. Features old style early 1900's atmosphere complete with original hardwood floors. As for the confections, they are second to none... More

We had a fun day walking around The Strand, and the highlight was a visit to La King's! We had delicious homemade ice cream cones, bought a bag of wonderful salt water taffy, and enjoyed the fun atmosphere! They have taffy pulls twice a day, a fun activity to show the kids!

We were here in time for a taffy pull which was interesting for everyone in our group, even dad. Kids enjoyed looking at & wishing for ALL the displayed candy. A 1/2 box of taffy is about $20 or you can just bag up the flavors you want for about $2.25 a lb (minimum purchase is 1/4 lb -about 15... More

Very clean, busy (but not crowded), friendly staff, and great food. All the chocolate you could want, a real soda fountain, fresh ice cream treats (Bluebell products), and many candy options. Very fun visit, quite cheap in moderation.

Thank you for your review. However, we make our own Purity Ice Cream. Purity Ice Cream was the first manufactured ice cream in the state of Texas, and it started right here in Galveston. I'm glad you enjoyed it! More

You have heard the saying " kid in a candy store" well we were all like that. Recommend you visit during a "taffy pulling" session to watch the taffy being made. Every possible type of candy and ice cream selection to choose from
