Delicious

I stopped in just to buy a diet coke but after seeing how great their treats looked I had to try them. Salted chocolate caramel and almond toffee, both delicious

If you want to try New Orleans pralines this is the spot you need to try! I have heard over and over from locals and other visitors that have tried others and this spot is always recommended! The pralines were amazing and I even got some to take home!

I absolutely love this place. Candies made fresh daily. We can't leave New Orleans without Tortues and Rum Pralines. We order and have them shipped to our home when we can't get there. The candies make excellent gifts.

Must do in New Orleans. Located in the French Quarter, accessible by walking or public transport although may take a while depending on traffic. They give you taste samples, a few other places do too, but Southern Candymakers is just too good to miss out on. Go here first! Prices aren't bad either.

Anytime I go to New Orleans, I cannot complete my trip without a stop into Southern Candymakers. As a lover of pecans and all things chocolate, the white chocolate tortues are absolutely to die for! The best praline place in the city.

There are a lot of candy stores in New Orleans, but NONE like this. Staff gives out samples so you know exactly what you're getting before buying it. The peanut butter pralines were my favorite. You can't go wrong coming here.

The real deal. Candy made on site. Why buy mass produced sweets in the French Quarter's many tourist shops when you can visit the real deal. YUM
