Of course, I've not tried everything but everything I've tried was good and soooooooo sweet. First, I have to recognize that part of the success of this store may be linked to its location. How can you not like to spend an afternoon or a nice evening in this street where there are so many concept stores and quite often... More

Fudge, pralines, ice cream and more all located very close to the tour trolley stop. We had the ice cream and sampled the pralines.

If you like sweets - then this is a place you cannot go to! Throw that diet out the window! Dive in and try a little of this and a little of that!! Have fun!

What heavenly ice cream! Made at one of their other locations for lack of space and brought overfor all the visitors at the River Street stores. I had the one scoop cake cone which really is 2 scoops of nutella ice cream. My husband had the same but with tiramisu ice cream. They were both winners!

I cant go to river street without stopping in to smell the goodies. Usually I cant get out of there without some pralines and turtles.

My husband and I walked in this shop on a warm balmy evening. As soon as we entered we were greeted with a fresh warm praline sample...it was excellent! The staff was super friendly and advised us on our purchase. I even snuck a 2nd sample on my way out. I learned that I can order online and this yankee... More

We were welcomed by the worker making candy as soon as we walked in. He created each child and offered them a sample as they walked past. The cookies and cream and birthday cake ice cream was good. Our cashier Roudet L (that's what the receipt said) was very helpful. He even made change for the penny press for us... More
