La Kings Confectionary

La King's Confectionery is a throwback to the 1920's when folks came out to the local confectionery to enjoy treats and visit with neighbors.

Visitors will find handmade chocolates; fresh, Salt Water Taffy along with wild and zany novelties; small, batch roasted Duncan Coffee Beans; Purity Ice Cream, which is the oldest ice cream in Texas.

In the late 20's, Jimmy King began learning the trade from 'Old World' candy makers. In 1976, Jimmy's oldest son, Jack, moved his family to the historic Strand, in Galveston, to recreate an old fashioned confectionery. He used the 19th century formulas and methods, handed down to him, using traditional equipment and procedures to make confections.

A favorite of the shop is the working 1920's soda fountain. The fountain is a great place to grab a malt, shake, ice cream soda, sundae, banana split, root beer float and other favorite fountain treats.

You can't visit The Stand without stopping by this place.
