“Good but not Great”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

We stopped in for some pralines on our way out of the French market. Their prices were high for the size of the Praline received, I believe 1 oz size. They offere a large assortment of other candies along with the Pralines. After reading other reviews here I would have expected more.

“Sweet”
Reviewed 22 April 2012

They have nice prepackaged samplers of local treats if you don't know what to get but my favorite besides the obvious pralines! was their peanut butter cups. They were almost like a chocolate peanut butter sandwich, filled with oodles of creamy peanut butter!!! They have a catalog so you can order more from home, and I will be! In a great part of town to explore too!

“BEST PRALINES IN NOLA”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

Sadly, they don't keep too well. After trying the peanut butter, sweet potato, and rum, I think the original flavor is still the best.
