We were told when coming to NOLA to try pralines and this was one of the highest rated places, and for good reason. They're sweet and have a perfect texture. We also got a sampler box with pralines, mississippi mud and turtles, all of which...More

The pralines and other candies like the delicious Tortues are the best in the city! I regularly stop there for movie treats, as well as for thank-you gifts for hosts/hostesses. My favorites are the original creamy, but they're all good!

We never come to NOLA without a visit to the Southern Candy Company. Hands down, they have the best pralines in NOLA - really anywhere! Don't miss stopping by on your next trip to the Big Easy.

They have posted signs and awards declaring theirs to be the best pralines in New Orleans. TRUST THEM! Super friendly service and tasty treats that continue to delight the tongue long after they've vacated your palate.

Creamy pralines weren't the creamiest I've had, but the peanut butter praline was good. Peanut butter cups are more like a peanut butter sandwich. Nothing holds the peanut butter in so when you take a bite it explodes out the sides.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
