Top Five Candies to Make Savannah Visitors Stay for Life
From timeless Savannah favorites, to fudgy and fluffy confections, River Street Sweets, Savannah’s oldest candy store has been serving up some of Lowcountry’s favorite sweets for almost 40 years.
So whether you’re looking for decadent hand-dipped pralines or some silky smooth, milk chocolate bear claws, here are the top five candies guaranteed to make you come back saying: I missed you a choco-lot.
Pralines, pralines, and more pralines. These buttery candies are the number one best seller at River Street Sweets. This Savannah staple is made of the South’s best pecan halves, butter, sugar, and cream—leaving customers with one of the region’s best treats.
Milk Chocolate Bear Claws
Everything far from unbearable, these milky treats are sometimes called turtles, but at River Street Sweets, they’re called bear claws. As the pecans peek out under all the gooey and chocolate-y goodness, guests find that they resemble a bear claw, but taste nothing less than rich chocolate.
Using mammoth size Georgia Pecans, this southern treat is both salty and sweet, the perfect pecan bite that just can’t be beat.
Crunchy and nutty, this hand made treat is stirred slowly in a large copper kettle, stretched out on a marble table, and is guaranteed to offer a crunch that will keep you coming back for more.
Nougat Log Roll
This delicate roll of fluffy nougat is dipped in River Street Sweet’s handmade caramel, and then rolled in freshly chopped Georgia pecans, offering the creamiest of treats, with the fluffiest of bites.
