“Kids paradise”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

Great experience for kids and a family. We cooled off with frizen yummy treats. ..chocolate chocolate chip ice cream, root beer floats and an old fashioned banana split. Kids loaded up on salt water taffy. We will definitely go back on our next trip...a little crowded, but it was prime tourist time.

Good place to get various goods if you have a sweet tooth and spend time to relax if in a group walking around the strand

“Definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

This was a great place to escape the heat and definitely a fun atmosphere inside. The Caramel Apple Smoothie was yum, but guessing it would be pretty crowded on the weekend.

“Sweet shop!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

An old fashioned candy store feel. Very busy & full of sweet yumminess. The ice cream is creamy and fresh. Got some candy to take home. Some employees seemed irritated & there isn't an organized system as to who helps who. Stand by the candy counter & wait for service.
A nice find in Galveston & family friendly. Recommended.
