  • 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!
