Candy and Memories Made From Scratch

The man behind the famous Savannah, GA Candy is, Stan “the candy man” Strickland. The story begins in Woodbine, Georgia. His mother worked in a candy factory in Woodbine known for their Pralines, Log Rolls, Glazed Pecans, Peanut Brittle and Divinity. At home, she was always making candy, especially during the holidays. She was an old fashioned baker who measured with the “cup” of her hand and always used the best, fresh ingredients. For Stan’s mother, cooking and baking was an art form. Stan baked with his mom in the kitchen learning how to make her spectacular homemade southern delights.

Stan decided to share his family’s sweet southern delights with others at his Savannah, GA candy store. Over thirty years ago, Stan opened Savannah’s Candy Kitchen on historic River Street. Visitors quickly discovered that Stan’s kitchen was the place to experience and taste down home southern sweetness. In order to keep up with the demand for his candy, Stan had to expand; but he made sure to keep his recipes fresh and homemade no matter how big the kitchen grew. Now Savannah’s Candy Kitchen occupies over 4,200 square feet and every square foot is filled to the brim with the best candies, cakes, and confections in the south.

  • Unforgettable pralines. We've been to the original shop in Savannah and we're excited to see one on Broadway. Things you should know: I. LOCATION Along Broadway with all the lights. Don't worry, they have a lit up sign of their own to guide you in to their store. II. SERVICE They give free praline samples when you walk in the door, so I mean, how can you complain with that? What's nice is they're open LATE ~ until 11p.m. III. QUALITY Delicious. We've tried other items but always refer back to the pralines IV. CAPACITY It's in a busy area with a lot of foot traffic, so naturally the store has quite a bit of traffic too.
  • Literally a place plucked from Savannah and placed down in Nashville! Prices are a bit higher than back in Savannah but the sweets are just as good. My wife got a candy apple and bags of candy. Such a fun shop that definitely doesn’t need my review to get customers in the door but a great reprieve from the music and drinks. The smartest business decision that’s ever been made. A candy store on Broadway.
