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...

You can't pass by this place! The smell of pralines being turned out onto the slab in the front window will call you inside. Here you can watch saltwater taffy being stretched and folded, pretzels dipped in dark chocolate, and 'bear claws' of caramel, pecans, and dark chocolate being made. There is every kind of penny candy you can imagine,... More

We went back twice during our visit to buy more pralines. They are delicious but costly--about $20 for 6 pieces. They're pretty amazing though and we did take some home because the pieces are pretty large. The ice cream is delicious, too.

A must stop if you love sugar sweets. Samples all around the store are huge pieces of all the candies. Delicious!

This is the place to get your authentic southern pralines. They offer free samples of fresh pralines, freshly made, when they're at their best. They also have fresh fudge and several other freshly made candies. Next door there's an ice cream counter and bins with kiddie candy of various interesting kinds. It does get crowded though. We didn't stay and... More

Traveling with my husband and two teenagers on 12.27.16. We were making our way down River St checking out the cool places and shops. We came up on this place and they were giving out samples right from where they were making the pralines. The samples were warm and so darn good. We came in to check out the rest... More

Great candy, River Street is a great atmosphere and has many great shops but the candy stores appear to be favorites for all ages. The sweet treats here are amazing but bring money as they are not cheap but worth the extra money. Very fresh and great quality.

River Street sweets is an amazing place for any candy or chocolate lover. There is so much wonderful choices there to hit any sweet spot. They have homemade chocolates that will always keep you coming back for more. The variety at the bulk candy section is outstanding!

Loved the pralines! Very interesting place to just visit, but beware -- it is hard to not buy something. Big variety of sweets -- anything you could possible want! We went to the location on River Street. Loved the old building and watching them make the sweets!
