They do salt water taffy pulls the old fashioned way, on an antique machine. A wonderful family location.

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.

We're an old-fashioned soda fountain, ice cream parlor​, candy store, and coffee shop. We make all of our own Purity ice cream, the first manufacturer of ice cream in Texas. You can watch salt water taffy being made, which is just one of the things we're known for.
