Savannah's Candy Kitchen, Savannah

(4.3/5 based on 95+ 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.

  • Stopped here on one of our Trolley stops (city market) and loved the store. The pralines are so good, you must try! The popcorn is really yummy, too. If you have a sweet tooth you will not regret stop...  more »
  • Best Pralines North of New Orleans. A must place to visit if you like Pralines and other types of homemade candies. A large selection.  more »
  • 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.  more »

  • Best pralines ever. Great fudge and cndied nuts. Every flavor of salt water taffy. You can watch them making the candies. Best divinity too. Oh well every thing is awesome!
  • While the place looks pretty cool with all their candy equipment, the place smells saccharine (and so is their candies). Everything tastes way too sweet. I personally would like to taste the chocolate in a chocolate bark/dipped pretzel etc instead of just sweetness overpowering everything.
  • Pralines are continuously being made to keep up with demand. We consumed them while they were still warm. Many other candy confections are offered, a lot of them made in house. Time to go off the diet.
  • Great selections. A bit pricey, but worth it. Many varieties of sweets to choose from. Several taffy flavors too
  • Pralines are amazing! All the freshly made treats are fantastic! You can literally get every candy that you can think of here!
