What the community has to say about La King's Confectionery

Information about this business (5)

We’re an old-fashioned soda fountain, ice cream parlor​, candy store, and coffee shop. We make all of our own Purity ice cream, the first manufacturer of ice cream in Texas. You can watch salt water taffy being made, which is just one of the things we’re known for.

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....

Best Ice Cream in Galveston!!!

Average Rating

You just have to visit this place if you are in Galveston. The candy is amazing and the salt water taffy is very soft, and fresh. If you get to catch them making the taffy thats really cool, and look out they will throw some at you! It's an old building with very friendly people. A must if you are...
