The Sweet Taste of Savannah!
On historic River Street in Savannah, Georgia you will find a candy store that has been renowned for their world famous pralines for 44 years. Everyone who walks into River Street Sweets will be enticed to try a sample of the pralines or fudge or other candies on display.
A simple taste of these delicious handmade candies will also find you purchasing a bit of this, a little of that…. and of course a few pralines. So many sweet treats to choose from. One whole wall is filled with every flavor of saltwater taffy you can imagine. I have yet to go into the store without leaving with at least a few tasty tidbits.
Oh Fudge – How River Street Sweets Came About

They finally agreed and a week later, on St. Patrick's Day, the first batch of chocolate mint fudge was made. It sold like crazy and soon it became obvious that candy was much more popular than the gifts they had been featuring. Within six months, River Street Sweets became a full-fledged candy store.
Today, they are known worldwide for their gourmet southern sweets. On a visit to River Street Sweets you can watch candy makers dip pralines onto a giant marble slab Stan bought from a gravestone company. You can also see them stir glazed pecans in huge copper kettles and see the 100-year-old saltwater taffy machine in action. They make their sweets in the stores and also ship them out around the world.
Come on a video tour of Savannah Street Sweets
The Savannah store is run today by grown-up Jennifer and Tim, while just down the street Stan "The Candy Man" operates Savannah's Candy Kitchen, the largest candy store in the south since 1990.
If you cannot make it to Savannah, other River Street Sweets stores can be found in the Mall of Georgia in North Atlanta, in two places in Charleston, SC, and in Myrtle Beach, SC, as well as Key West and Lancaster Maryland. New locations will soon be coming to Texas, New Jersey and South Carolina. You can also order them online from Amazon or through their catalog or website.

All candies sold by River Street Sweets are made using their own family recipes to make the finest and freshest handmade Southern candies around. Not surprising, their best sellers are the glazed pecans, their bear claws and the oh-so-delicious pecan pralines.
