My daughter and I stopped here on a short trip to Savannah. $35 later we had several bags full of goodies. If you like dark chocolate, they have many different selections. The dark chocolate mint truffles are excellent. We also liked the peanut butter ritz crackers, dipped in chocolate as well as the chocolate dipped pretzels. Lots of choices and... More

This store is amazing. The smell of fresh candy being made is so inviting. They make taffy and pralines right there so everyone can watch, and give out samples of the warm fresh made confections. I bought pralines and bear claws to bring home. They even have a catalog to order this yummyness online.

The pralines were great, as always. My daughters got milk chocolate covered strawberries and they loved them. The cashier was super friendly.

Huge yummy selection! If You love candy and sweets this is perfect. We came once before and decided to come back it was still as amazing as before. We bought so much candy for the ride back home!

If you visit Savannah you have to visit this fun and delicious candy store. You can watch them make taffy, pralines, and other goodies. The staff is friendly and helpful, and someone is always giving out samples. They have every sweet you can think of, but I recommend something they make themselves like the pralines. They also have ice cream.

We had to drop by and buy our own supply of bear claws to bring home after someone shared one with us. The caramel was gooey, the nuts crunchy, the whole thing delicious. If you go in, there are often free samples being distributed (we had pralines) so that's a plus. But prepare to pay a good sum. They weigh... More

The generous samples and the wonderful smell of caramel drew me into this candy shop. You see the candies made right as you enter the store. The pralines and glazed pecans were the best. I did not buy enough when I was there, but luckily they ship.

If you like candy, especially taffy, you should visit this store. It is more than a candy shop, it's like a step back in time. My son loved watching them make the taffy and the conveyor belt that gets it into the bins. It was a fun experience...and DELICIOUS!

Upon entry you get a whiff of the sweet, yummy goodness that is inside! As you walk in you can get a sample (hot and fresh) of the pralines...yum!! There are so many choices. Definitely worth a stop in to cure that sweet tooth!
