Our group stopped through for ice creams: coffee choc chip was a huge hit, praline was amazing, caramel tortue was delicious. Sand dollars are the perfect combo of good quality caramel, white, milk or dark chocolate and pecan, almond or cashew. I also bought a mixed bag of salt water taffey for a friend back home, it's his favorite!

This place is great, and the secret is out- expect crowds! Beautiful candy's, old fashioned sodas, and delicious ice cream. Prices are pretty reasonable for such a novelty- $3 ice cream cones & cups. A must stop in the Strand area.

We headed back to Galveston for a quick stop at the strand, a beautiful historic area and the well known soda fountain at La King's. Everyone had a Shake....pineapple, butterscotch, chocolate, and strawberry, plus my root beer float...classics and a full double in the stainless container....yum! 6.25 each. Bruce said they were just like back in high school....and don't forget the candy counter, which the length of the shop and includes all the old favorites and sugar-free to boot.

This is a place you have to stop by on the Strand. Kids will love it and a great place to stop during a hot summers day or for that matter anytime of year. Not a place when you are on a diet but y ou can always share. So many choices between Ice Cream, Coffees, and Candies. Like taking a trip back in history.

We go to the LA King's Confectionery EVERY time we go to Galveston. My daughter has to have some of their mint chocolate chip ice cream, my husband always gets a float, and I always get the Texas Butter Pecan coffee! There is an old fashion horse ride my daughter rides EVERY time we go, and it is only .50 cents. The candy in the store is also great!
