Yum yum!! Pralines were delicious. However, Not many for $23.00. Great place, but tourist trap on River St. One of the staff handing out candies out front made it irresistible not to buy some. I got one pound of pralines and they went fast between three of us.

This is a much smaller candy store on river street. They do have a larger catalog available but charge $9 shipping on orders. Candy kitchen offers free shipping so we would continue to order from here. This is cool if you haven't found the other store further down. Once you see candy kitchen this is really no comparison. The pralines... More

We come here every time we are in Savannah. The handmade choclates and pralines are outstanding. You will go broke and get side track on your diet coming here.

Good samples, decent enough pralines. ..but nothing to write home about. $19.99 per lb, I almost went into shock at being told my 2 pralines were over $8! The customer paying next to me had the same reaction. Not worth a $4 price each.

I usually get my sugar fix at their competitor down the road. I decided to give this place a try and find that their pralines are much more tasty, being less grainy and sugary. The coated nuts are delicious. Their prices are competitive on everything but the taffy, which is cheaper down the road. For pralines and nuts I will... More

River Street Sweets is a must stop when we are on River Street. My family loves the pralines (they always get the free samples... I end up handing mine off to someone else). If you are lucky they will be making Salt Water Taffy with some very old equipment, which is fun to watch (and they might toss you a... More

Tried a dark chocolate bear claw was great and the dark chocolate peanut butter cup. You could tell they had high quality caramel and nuts. The dark chocolate was fine but I wish it was darker it tasted like it was definitely 55 to 60 percent cocoa which I don't consider to be dark. Besides that it was a wonderful... More
