River Street Sweets, Savannah

River Street Sweets, Savannah

River Street Sweets is probably the best candy and sweets store in all of Georgia. With a combined history of 100 years of candy-making experience, the owner Strickland family has made the South synonymous with gourmet southern sweets.

There is so much candy to choose from here that you can easily get lost in the rows. Whether it be the world-famous pralines, saltwater taffy, crunchy, hand-stretched peanut brittle or homemade pecan pies, their made-from-scratch southern delicacies are all extremely tasty. The shop patrons have always loved the nostalgic experience of watching candy makers dip pralines onto giant marble slabs; stir glazed pecans in huge copper kettles; and see the 100-year-old saltwater taffy machine in action.

River Street Sweets smells delectable, with the capturing aroma drifting out the door, luring passers-by inside to taste a wonderful sample of freshly made pecan praline. Afterwards, you can't help buying a few of their other tasty treats! So enter at your own risk.

Tip:
Sweets's baked goods and ice creams are also delicious, so save room to try some!
