“Pralines!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

The best pralines in town. The chocolate covered caramels and marshmallows and cherries were also excellent. Friendly staff - the young woman behind the counter was especially friendly and helpful every time we stopped. Will come back!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Wow! Delicious pralines, turtles, and any thing else you can imagine. It is a tiny place- but definitely worth a stop. Free samples :)

“Satisfy the sweet tooth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

We visited this candy heaven in Oct of 2012. The variety and quality of their chocolate, toffee, caramel, etc. was exceptional. I would recommend stopping in either for a sweet indulgence on your new Orleans walk about or for a sweet treat to take home with you. They will seal you purchase for travel at no extra cost.

“The aroma is unreal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012 via mobile

They should pump the aroma outside, I am sure people would wonder inside. Bought pound of pralines and pound of SW taffy. Delish.

“Very good candies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

Good balance of sweet and flavor. All too often, candy makers overdo the sweet and neglect on flavor. Not here. Ha the specialities and not the chocolate so cannot comment on the quality but I would suspect it's rather good too. Stop in at this unassuming shop.
