Before I left for a business trip to New Orleans my children asked me to buy them some NOLA chocolate. After doing some research on Trip Advisor I settled on the Southern Candymakers. The location was convenient to the French Quarter. We were greeted by huge samples of their freshly made pralines - yum! On the first trip (yes, I HAD to go back) I purchased Tortues dipped in chocolate. Since I was bringing them home, they kindly shrinked wrapped them (it was a good thing, as I'm not sure they would have made it home!) I also had a freshly made lemon truffle -- FABULOUS! The staff was so friendly, even recommending a jewelry shop. On my second trip the staff remembered us. This time purchased their glazed pecans and dipped Oreos. A delightful shop!
