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.

  • They have pralines. Stop in and taste a fresh praline. Did they have other stuff? I guess so, but they have excellent, fresh pralines. Nothing else could interest me.

  • This place is a Savannah staple and visitors simply must go either here of River Street Sweets (same parent company) at least once. As someone who doesn't care for pralines I LOVE the pralines. Like c...  read more »
  • An iconic establishment. Savannah wouldnt be savannah without it. Highly recommended for families wuth children
  • 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.
  • Like walking through Willie Wonka's own candy shop—but with a touch of history and southern charm. Try resisting their chocolate smothered rice crispy treats.
  • Wholly yum! I could try one of everything. The staff is super friendly. Had the peach ice cream this time (at 9:30 am nonetheless). Great.
  • A nice tourist spot. They recently got rid of anything "crybaby" related (Very sour candy) they used to have buckets, bins and individual items but they've all been wiped and replaced with a watered-down version of sour candy. I used to spend $8 a month here on average, no longer ! Bring back cry-babies!! Because now I'm going to order them on Amazon and there's no point in me making the trip downtown to patron city market! I'm being a crybaby about crybabies!!
