I like this store over the others, because it has a bigger selection and you can mix and match. The cookies are delicious and so are all the different chocolates they have.

OK, I know it's heresy, but I don't like pralines. If you want a sample of a praline, however, they are very generous with them here. What I did purchase here was fudge (chocolate and maple), a homemade peanut butter cup, and some of the best turtles (I believe they called them tortugas - pecans and caramel covered in chocolate)...

if you are looking for genuine and delicious French pralines this is the place for you. Melva and the other employees are friendly and nice, their job is not just a job but a mission, make our stomaches happy and satisfied.

I went here to buy some pralines to take home because it was so highly rated on Trip-advisor. The candy is delicious - pralines and toffee. Staff were very helpful in making a choice and nice about wrapping it for travel. Pralines are everywhere in they city but I highly recommend coming to this place.

Don't forget to stop in and get some candy. They offer some free samples of the items as well to ensure you like what you buy. They also make there candy right there in front of you so even if you want to just see how it is done, it is worth the stop. The staff is friendly and happy... More

I got a free sample outside the store while walking to my hotel and was addicted. Came back as soon as I checked in!

Staff is friendly and service is speedy. Pralines are fresh and truly do melt in your mouth! This place is definitely worth the stop. Many other options are available including fudge, saltwater taffy, and multitudes of chocolates!

I stopped in to get a few pralines with a friend. I tasted one and it just melted in my mouth. I tried 4 more at the airport but they weren't as good as Southern Candymakers! I'll be ordering online soon!

There are lots of places to buy pralines in New Orleans but this is the right place. Fresh and flavorful, they could only be better if they weren't quite so expensive. Buy a few less pieces to make up the cost difference--they're really good. We had some ice cream, too, which was also a bit pricey but much appreciated on... More
