Oh my gosh! You have to stop by here and get gophers and hot pralines… Try the samples as you walk in the door! You won’t be sorry. Right on River Street, and this particular shop is actually better than Savannah‘s Candy kitchen… I really...hate to say that... but it’s true! The reason why I’m saying that... River Street actually hand dipped my rice crispy treat on the spot and it was fresh… The one I bought from the “other shop” was hard as a rock and stale, money lost on that one. The ladies that work there have some really awesome stories about how they created their candy... just ask them!More

Stopped there in the morning, and they had very good treats and lots of candy, like you got when you were a kid.

Great pralines! Offer samples as you walked in the door. Other goodies were also yummy. No samples on the coated nuts which was disappointing.

I am a sucker for some good freshly made pralines, and River Street Sweets has some of the best I’ve ever tasted, along with other goodies to satisfy that sweet tooth. I ended up walking out with a pound and a half of pralines, although...I don’t think it will last for much longer!More

I have gotten their sweets at the Mall of Georgia outlet, but this is SO MUCH BETTER! Mind you, you intake about 400 calories just by walking in, but wow is this good!

OMG! The smells and the sights... From popcorn to peanuts its amazing here. You have to see ti to believe it. We liked it so much that we checked out their location at City Market as well. The jelly fruit segments were amazing!!

I've ordered from here but wanted to try some fresh desserts. So we tried the peach and bear claw sorbets. It also smells deliciously wonderful as they are preparing fresh chocolate. Even someone like me who rarely eats desserts yearned for the snacks provided.

If you're new to the South, or have never had a praline - this is your spot. It's right on River Street - which is usually a must for Savannah newbies, and they gift you with free samples. It's a fun spot for the kids...too. Good "sweets" souvenirs.More

We ducked in here during our stay in Savannah and they offered a praline sample. This shop makes much of their own candy and it smelled divine! My husband bought a candied apple here too and it was good. They have ice cream and all...kinds of candy imaginable. Great place to stop.More

If you love anything ice cream, chocolate, caramel, candy, you’ll love it here. Don’t go if you’re diabetic but a great place to take the kids for a special treat!

Not sure of actual expiration date but IMH pralines are always best eaten fresh within a few days. Not saying they won’t be good after that at all but I personally enjoy them less the older they are. I guess it depends on... More
