  • Buttery and sweet, the pralines are yummy. Brought back a regular and a chocolate as a gift. Expensive at $6 but unique and delicious. Go into the next room to watch taffy being hand pulled and cut & ...  more »
  • ❤❤❤❤❤❤ I still remember how good that praline was! I wanna go back just for more! Plus it's right off the river, such a pretty view! 
  • You can't pass by this place! The smell of pralines being turned out onto the slab in the front window will call you inside. Here you can watch saltwater taffy being stretched and folded, pretzels dip...  more »

  • 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!
