“A MUST VISIT in NOLA!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Southern Candymakers is a must visit when you go to NOLA! We spend as much as a nice meal in this place on sweets and they are worth every penny! The pralines are top-notch, no matter what flavor you get, they are the best in the city! I have feel in love with their "love bites" which are salted caramels covered in chocolate, but find myself craving the salted caramel fudge! I would have it shipped to my door if it were available!!

“Chocolate fix accomplished!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

Having the need to complete my pallet after dinner in the French Quarter, I was on a mission to find some good chocolate. The Southern Candymakers made my day. The chocolate was rich, fresh, and delicious! I just wish it wasn't so pricey. 2 chocolate pieces + 2 praline pieces cost nearly $12.

“The best candy in NOLA - avoid the tourist traps.”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

This place is the real deal - they make amazing, fresh candy and pralines daily. Avoid the tourist trap 'Aunt Sally' nonsense and head to this gem in the French Quarter.

“Unbelievably good!!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

The smell inside the shop was utterly amazing! The most difficult part was deciding what to buy because EVERYTHING looked fabulous! The free samples of pralines made me decide I absolutely needed to buy some of those. They were absolutely decadent. I also bought some tortues (turtles) and fudge. I was very happy to see that they ship nationwide and you can order online ... will definitely be doing this. This is my new favorite candy store. One of my very favorite finds in New Orleans. Seriously a do not miss.
