Honestly...spectacular. Service was phenomenal. The employees were so kind to our young daughters. The ice cream was great! The truffles were spectacular. We will definitely come back at some point...would love to see a taffy pull.

Delightful candy and ice cream selection. Always stop here when in Galveston. You can order and have items sent via usps. I sent my mom some Divinity (her favorite) and it arrived in perfect condition. A must while on the island.
