Savannah's Candy Kitchen, Savannah

(4.3/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
From a mother’s kitchen in Woodbine, GA to Savannah, GA, candy from the Strickland kitchen is still down home delightful.

The man behind the famous Savannah, GA Candy is, Stan “the candy man” Strickland. The story begins in Woodbine, Georgia. His mother worked in a candy factory in Woodbine known for their Pralines, Log Rolls, Glazed Pecans, Peanut Brittle and Divinity. At home, she was always making candy, especially during the holidays. She was an old fashioned baker who measured with the “cup” of her hand and always used the best, fresh ingredients. For Stan’s mother, cooking and baking was an art form. Stan baked with his mom in the kitchen learning how to make her spectacular homemade southern delights.

Stan decided to share his family’s sweet southern delights with others at his Savannah, GA candy store. Over thirty years ago, Stan opened Savannah’s Candy Kitchen on historic River Street. Visitors quickly discovered that Stan’s kitchen was the place to experience and taste down home southern sweetness. In order to keep up with the demand for his candy, Stan had to expand; but he made sure to keep his recipes fresh and homemade no matter how big the kitchen grew. Now Savannah’s Candy Kitchen occupies over 4,200 square feet and every square foot is filled to the brim with the best candies, cakes, and confections in the south.

  • Old fashioned buckets filled with candy; several rooms of tempting treats, taffy machine, and a train running all through the shop. Amazing to visit and oh so delicious! Worth the walk over for sure. 
  • We stopped here during our trolley tour (Old Town Trolley). Located in City Market area, it is a must! Get some pralines but the gophers are yummy as well. 
  • Store is fabulous with any type of candy your heart desires!! Great fudge and pralines!! Great customer service... truly need to visit

  • Fantastic for your sweet tooth. Great selection of candy, much of it made on site. Also great ice cream and Gelato
  • While in Savannah I enjoyed some wonderful fresh gophers from the candy case. I purchased the box of six pre wrapped gophers to bring back to friends. They weren't anything like the fresh ones ... the caramel was a crystallized sugar. Very disappointing quality. Lesson learned, poor quality/high price!
  • The heavenly aroma of butter and sugar greet you even before you walk into the store. It's my go to spot for delicious candy and pralines. I stock up whenever I can. I enjoy surprising visitors to my home with a few delectable pieces of divinity from here.
  • Must stop by ! Was really cool & original Awesome concept! Make sure to get a pecan log and praline :)
  • An iconic establishment. Savannah wouldnt be savannah without it. Highly recommended for families wuth children
