“YUM!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Oh my goodness...the smell of candy is amazing once you walk inside this place. The pralines are wonderful. We left with caramel apples, chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate covered caramel, chocolate alligators, and more great stuff. It was a great stop to load up on vacation snacks!

“Best pralines in NO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

My friend and I agreed these were the best pralines in NO (and we tasted a lot of the others so you don't have to). Save your calories on the others and get these! And the tortues! There are turtles and then there are tortues in NO. These are to die for! Definitely be back here on the next visit to NO.

“A sinfully delicious place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

This store is so wonderful. Besides the incredible array of chocolate and everything praline delights, you can watch them making the candy. They have a very friendly staff who are quite liberal with the test samples. This is a great place to get your vacation presents for family and friends back home.

“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!

“delicious specialties!”
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 :)
