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.

  • My kids really enjoyed this place. They got to witness the entire process of taffy confectionery and since it was off season the showing was almost private. They were in awe. I enjoyed the fresh samples. You can't come in without buying something delicious!
  • If you are looking for something sweet this is the place to shop. Great store, interesting demonstrations of candy being made and all the employees are very friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed watching the taffy being made and the operator answered our questions and we also got some samples. Keep going through the shop and find the ice cream. Everything was delicious!
  • I got several things from this store while in Savannah and everything was phenomenal. The old structure of the shop itself is so much fun to look at and walk through and the smells are divine. Their caramel and candy apples are the size of softballs, the Taffy is available in every flavor under the sun, and the pecan pralines will melt in your mouth. Highly recommended if you're in the area- follow your nose, it'll take you to Savannah Candy Kitchen!
  • Great shop with LOTS to pick from fresh and others. Just to crowded and not good customer flow. But still a 4 star place
  • Awesome place to pick up caramel apples, fudge, candies, etc. Also a great place to go if you need stocking stuffers for Christmas! The only problem I have is that the hours listed are incorrect. During the week they are open until 9:00 - 9:30 pm. Knowing this would’ve saved me a wasted trip, but other than that, this place is great.
