My (now) mother-in-law took on the project to make gift bags for our out of town guests that included a list of restaurants, tourist information, bottled water, sunscreen, hot sauce, Mardi Gras beads, and, of course, pralines. I don't know the name of the woman my MIL worked with but from what I hear, she was wonderful to work with.... More

This place is great for picking up some sweet treats to take home and it was cheaper than I expected. Lots of free samples for you to try before you buy and everything tasted so good!

We wandered in by accident and ended up chatting with the proprietor and buying more candy than expected, having enjoyed the little samples all around the shop. Everyone at home pronounced their gifts delectable.

Everything is freshly made (unlike most of the shops in the quarter that sell pralines) and lots of opportunity for tasting. They'll also hold onto your purchase if your continuing to walk around (and it's a hot day).

Great selection of candies - not all the candy bought as gifts made it home, too delicious! Pralines on the expensive side. The Mississippi Mud Pie is not to be missed

Laura's Candies have a variety of candy and chocolates available. The pralines are made fresh daily and are amazingly addictive!

Amazing pralines. Went there during a food tour and we were so well treated. So Many samples and everything tasted great. Only downside would be that the pralines are not cheap..! Best treat I tasted was the Mississippi Mud, amazing!

World-famous pralines (they are good) and big, beautiful truffles in the original French Quarter kitchen. Laura’s Candies is the place for gourmet chocolate confections and traditional New Orleans-Style treats. Becoming more stylized and generic with time, but a perfect diversion in the NOLA heat and humidy. Grown-ups and children can both enjoy this New Orlean's treat. If you are a... More

The only good thing in this place is the Mississippi Mud. Everything else is too sweet and overpriced. I have had better chocolates from the pharmacy.
