Classic Strand experience. Nice place to sit and enjoy a coke and people watch. Beautiful pastries and sweets.

This is THE place to go for a sundae, malted, or float. Lots of ice cream choices too. Active candy making is interesting. You'll buy chocolate. Sit down ( if you can find a seat) it's very popular in summer.

We always make a trip here when we travel to Galveston. Everything is always wonderful, and it's like traveling back in time for a bit!

La King's was amazing. I got a variety of carmels. The bourbon carmel is wonderful as is the dark chocolate sea salt. I didn't get any, but I was also impressed with their large number of sugar free options.

We heard about La King's from a travel blog so it was high on list of places to see on the Strand and we're so glad we checked it out. From the traditional/old time atmosphere and ambiance to the superb milkshakes and ice creams, we...More

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.
