Candy Crushes in Seabrook
Nothing goes with an old-fashioned stroll along the Kemah Boardwalk like a trip into a confectionary where you’ll find one-of-a-kind sweet treats. Boardwalk Fudge at 505 Bradford Suite C in Kemah has a lot more than ooegy, gooey chocolate goodness (although there’s plenty of that). Their fudge might be world famous, but you’ll also be enchanted by the hand-carved egg shells—the perfect keepsake from your trip to Kemah.
Boardwalk Fudge is located in the lighthouse district and has been serving up sinful delights since 1990. Coffee, soups, honey, butters, jams and of course plenty of candies are sure to satisfy every craving you have. Sample the fudge flavors from the amaretto chocolate swirl to the maple nut or Heath English toffee.
A trip to Galveston is in order to visit the La King Confectionery at 2323 Strand Street. The centerpiece is a 1920s soda fountain, the crowning touch for this royal old-fashioned parlor specializing in traditional treats with contemporary twists. It all started in 1927 when Jimmy King made candy in Houston using the skills he learned from “Old World” candy makers.
King’s eldest son moved to Galveston in the 60s and recreated his father’s recipes. To this day, 19th century methods are used, traditional equipment is the biggest helper, and it’s a seriously tasty trip back in time whether you’re craving gummy delights or decadent chocolates.
