TONS of candy in all shapes and sizes. It's was cool watching the employee making the salt water taffy. Lots of free samples of tasty treats; that was enough for me as one could easily put themselves in a candy coma with the amount candy around. Kids would love this.

This place is so great! Be prepared to eat. A lot. Do not think about going if you are on a diet. It is really nice to watch them make the pralines, and on top of that there is a huge selection of candy to choose from to take with you.

My wife loves the brittle, pralines and chocolates. I'm a huge fan of the s'mores. They're always busy, and it's a bit cramped as you walk through. It's definitely worth your time though. Staff has always been helpful, although sometimes they're a little harried just because they're so busy.

We always stop here when in Savannah. My husband has a praline addiction and my daughter loves their fudge! Unfortunately, the cashier, Jeff, had a horrible attitude. One of the most unfriendly people ever. He is in the wrong line of work if he dislikes dealing with "tourists"! Nevertheless, I'm sure we will be back. Too yummy to skip! Maybe he was just having a bad day...

They still make candy here. Got a sample of praline as we walked in, then watched them pull taffy and pour chocolates. My favorites are the dark chocolate bear claws on pecans, but they have a wide assortment of sweets. Enjoy.
