Stop by and grab root beer float and a bag of candy or fudge. I've never been to Kings and not seen a full house of satisfied adults and children.

La King's looks like an old fashioned candy store and they have a huge selection. There were rows of gummies and chocolates. The taffy is to die for. I wish we could have watched the taffy pull.
