La Kings is a family tradition! We go every year when we are down at Galveston. Their ice cream is delicious and we love all the homemade candy! The kids enjoy watching the taffy being pulled. Best salt water taffy!!!

Amazing ice cream. Must stop in when in town. Too too many candies to choose from but mini gummi bears were great for my toddler. Family pended and very friendly staff.

although you can get some of their treats online, fudge does not seem to be one of them. you may wish to contact them to see if they will ship this item. You can contact them at 409-762-6100.
