If we stop for dinner on the strand we usually skip dessert at whatever restaurant we are at and go to La King's for a cone. Lot's of other candy choices as well if ice cream isn't your thing.

Awesome homemade ice cream with the ambiance of a soda shop straight out of the 50's (the servers are dressed in full soda shop attire!) Try to go on a day they are doing a taffy pull, so fun to watch!

La Kings has by far the best fresh squeezed lemonade! The ice cream is also amazing!! They do a demo/show for the taffy pulling, can be a bit hectic attempting to see! Overall tons of fun and will definitely visit again!!

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.
