  • Home recovering in Central Fl. From knee surgery. Was very pleased when today a great package of chocolate treats arrived in the mail from my daughter. Chocolate covered pretzels, graham crackers and ...  more »
  • I went in just for the samples, and ended up buying some really nice sweet to eat later. The staff is really nice and will give you samples of the many different things that they sell. 
  • DELISH!!! I can't say enough about how delicious River Street Sweets Peanut Butter fudge is. Their fudge is so smooth, not overpowering of being too sweet, it's PERFECT!!! So creamy and delicious!!!

  • Way overpriced even for the river tourist trap. Paid $7 for a square of fudge. I've had better I've had better taffy from the grocery store. The taster of gelato was very good though. I wish I would have just gotten the gelato.
  • Awesome place. This is a great candy & sweets shop. Perfect stop for people coming to Savannah! Me and my family would love to visit again!
  • I love this place. Stop by for a free sample of pralines. They are divine. Just because it's near another good candy shop (which you might think you prefer), I strongly suggest you check this place out, as their candy is delish!
  • Candy heaven. Great service. I go in this store every time I visit River Street
  • Delicious sweets and friendly service. Definitely a must if you're visiting Savannah!
