Made onsite, I return every year for my 'to go' bag of pralines, and other sweet assortments. It's so good, I started using the online order feature for special gifts and personal splurges inthe off season when I'm not traveling to the Crescent city!

Though expensive($25.00 per pound) the Creamy Original Pralines are the very best in N.O. We tried 12-15 others on this trip alone, and it was not close.
