Small candy store but great finds. Yummy chocolate and pralines. It's a small place and a bit crowded but worth it. A must try during your visit.

Pass by Aunt Sally's and all the others - head here for your praline needs. You won't be disappointed.

The pralines are the best. This shop is located in a popular area of the French Quarter and there is a wide selection of candy available (with no lines)!

Went looking for a good place to get pralines and everyone we talked to recommend this place. As soon as you walk in you're offered a sample. It was so good, we bought 2 lbs!

They may be the most expensive, but we tried every praline place in the quarter, and came back here because they were the best. One of the stores that sells all different types even had these out as a sample and we didn't know it. Tried them, and said "these are the only ones that are as good"....and then found... More

I'm not a big candy person but we got a sampler box and everything was very good. But also very expensive.

One of the best praline makers in NOLA! We always stop here when we visit! Light taste, not too sweet. Friendly staff!

This candymaker is one of the better praline makers that we've enjoyed. We've sampled several different ones, and Southern Candymakers' pralines seem to be creamier. Maybe it's because they are so fresh. We've always gotten a box to give away, and we get a few for ourselves to munch on. The originals are pretty tasty. We tried the peanut butter... More
