King's Confectionery (La)
Step back in time when you visit La King's Confectionery. Memories are everywhere in this candy shop and soda fountain. Remember the cherry cokes, malts, shakes and ice-cream sundaes? You can enjoy those tastes again plus many more interesting flavors. This shop was created by the family of James King, who, in the 1920s, began learning the art of candy making which are still being used today. You can choose from peanut brittle, divinity, pecan pralines, hand dipped chocolate, fudges and salt water taffy.
Arrived just in time to watch the taffy pull & received free samples of raspberry taffy, too! Yum!! 'Enjoyed delicious rootbeer floats & fresh-squeezed lemonade & limeade. The kids spent plenty of time surveying the many counters of fresh homemade chocolates & candies before deciding on their big purchases to enjoy during the rest of our fun weekend in Galveston.
My children thought it was pretty neat to see the male staff dressed in ice cream parlor attire: white shirts/pants, black bow ties & black-rimmed white caps. The females were dressed in cute candy counter blouses.
My family will definitely return for more visits & delicious treats!
There's really nothing to dislike about La King's. It's old-fashioned ice cream shoppe theme really brought back the memories of bygone days. The decor, glasses, straw dispensers, tables and chairs and even the old-fashioned uniforms of the employees takes one back in time to when ice cream or a malted milk was REALLY ice cream or malted milk! Yum.
I had a chocolate malt, icy cold and waiting for me in an old metal container, fresh from the blender! I got to pour it into the old-fashioned tall glass, accompanied by an old-fashioned long spoon and straw from an ancient straw dispenser. So nice and cool on a hot, humid day.
My wife had ice cream, similarly served in an antique-looking glass dish, and eaten with an antique-looking spoon.
Prices on both were very reasonable! Surprising in that the place is in the tourist district.
As if that wasn't enough sugar, we bought rootbeer-flavored rock candy on a stick, $1 each.
Don't leave Galveston without visiting La King's!
I happen to love candy, and I tend to eat it everywhere I go. La King's not only creates great old world favorites, but also serves ice creame and shakes. The atmoshpere is right on for the strand and really makes for a fun stop on a hot day. I highly suggest you stop in on your next visit to the Strand!
