My husband and I loved visiting this store along river street. We got some chocolate to eat now and some candy for later! It is a must visit when in Savannah. You even get to watch them make some of the sweets!

Best pralines I encountered on riverwalk. Most impressive for me was the robustness of the GA pecans and the glazed are absolutely just right. Bear claws are decadent but unique. The apples used here are green but robust and delicious.

As you walk in they are making pralines and giving samples. There are other sweet treats too but I bought only the regular and chocolate pralines.

Had Pralines shipped, came DAMAGE, MISSHAPEN and TASTELESS! They offered a credit via a gift card and then they decided without telling me that they wouldn't.

Our hotel left pralines from River Street Sweets on our pillows for the evening turn-down service so, naturally, we had to have more. Who could eat just one? This is a delightful shop on River Street where you can watch taffy being made or taste samples of their other delicious items. The pralines - both dark chocolate and regular -... More

Buttery and sweet, the pralines are yummy. Brought back a regular and a chocolate as a gift. Expensive at $6 but unique and delicious. Go into the next room to watch taffy being hand pulled and cut & wrapped on an old fashioned and still working machine. The various fudge flavors made me dizzy, and I barely scanned the shelves...
