Aunt Sally's Pralines are like no other pecan praline. Our classic confection is the standard by which all other pralines are judged. The attractive gift boxes tell Aunt Sally's history in illustrative images and family photographs of our original historical storefront. Our New Orleans pecan pralines come in Creamy Praline, Creole Praline, and Chewy Praline in a variety of assorted flavors from Triple Chocolate to Bananas Foster.
Aunt Sally's Creole Praline recipe has a delicate balance of what we call sugar burn (the sensation on the front part of the tongue) and milk fat (the taste remaining on the side of your tongue), with a light hint of vanilla and tender crunchy pecans which are poured by hand from a copper kettle.
Originally, the Aunt Sally's Pralines were sold individually or in packs of six or twelve, carried in hand-made cotton bales by vendors who rode a mule-drawn buggies throughout the French Quarter. Even in the early years of Aunt Sally's Praline Shop, visitors requested and received praline shipments by mail worldwide, long before mail order became popular. Today Aunt Sally's Pralines are beautifully packaged and visitors may see what a New York Times reporter recently acclaimed as the city's best pralines, or "disks of pure joy" being made daily at 810 Decatur Street in the historic French Quarter at the corner of Jackson Square and next to Café du Monde. Or, simply order your Aunt Sally's Pralines online and have yours shipped to you whenever you sweet tooth calls.
