OMG!! Homemade pralines, salt water taffy, etc. best I’ve ever had in years. Reminds me of a candy my mum used to take me to when I was a child and we could get “penny candy”! A must stop!!

Walked by several times before going in to be tempted by all the delicious looking goodies. Ended up with dark chocolate covered pretzels which were yummy. Everything looked good enough to eat!

When you walk into the place, they give you samples of the pralines. They are very sweet, but yummy. I think I gained 5 pounds just looking at all of the candy inside this very colorful store.

Oh my, their pralines are the ultimate best! I ordered some to take home as gifts, and while they made it home, they never made it back out of the house! Lots of other goodies there too.More

River Street Sweets, along with having some fantastic products has that perfect location on the River Walk. We ended up visiting 2 times over the 3 days in Savannah and almost made a 3rd. My Key Lime gelato was outstanding, and we came back for...chocolate bear claws. They had an incredible selection of candies, chocolates, gelato's as well as those fantastic pralines, while located in an historic old building with a lot of character.More

When you walk by this place, you can't help but go in due to the sweet aroma. I'm not even a sweets eater but my husband bought some pralines for himself and I couldn't help but try it. Geez, it was amazing. But not cheap....Dig deep because it's worth it!More

Very tasty treats and a larger variety of them. Staff was friendly and helpful. There are some specials and we took advantage of one of them. If you buy a pound of pralines you get another 1/2 pound free. The sign is not large and...we missed it, but the staff member let us know about it when we had order just under a pound, so that we could take advantage of the offer. Thanks!!More
