If you are a candy or ice cream lover you will feel like you've reached heaven at this place. Tried both the dark chocolate sea salt caramel and one of the many ice cream flavors. Definitely will be going back here if we make it to Galveston again.

We bought 1/4 pound of various flavors of fudge. The flavors available were great. We also had some ice cream and it was good too.

Tried other places in Galveston for ice cream and there is no comparison. Friendly staff (except for the one crab behind... More
