We went in on our 1st day in NOLA had a lot of good samples of different pralines, the rum one was the best, we bought 3 pralines and another candy before we left for home we stopped and stocked up. Well worth the price.

After taste testing pralines at over six shops, Laura's definitely had the best. Not too sugary, perfect consistency, delicate flavor notes...cannot stop eating the dozen we purchased. The coconut and rum flavored pralines are to die for.

Pralines here are so good. They have all kinds of candy on display for sample. The best candy is the ones that are freshly made. They will be the shiny ones in the case. Make sure you buy the freshly made candy ours was still...More

You can try each kind of pralines to help you decide which type you want to purchase. Lots of other candy for sale, but these are THE BEST pralines in the French Quarter.

We were on the look out for the freshest pralines and for the best price and this place had both! On top of that, they freely have pit samples, had a good selection and the staff were so nice. I highly recommended.

There's a brand of praline that is ubiquitous in the French Quarter. However, just because their marketing distribution and product placement may be better, it doesn't mean the candy tastes better. Trust me. Laura's Candies, by far, has the most flavorful praline in the Quarter....More

With so many candy stores in New Orleans, and literally every one of them claiming to have the best pralines, it is hard to differentiate yourself. Here, however, the staff made all the difference. The salesperson from the time we walked in was exceptionally friendly,...More

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
