So you’ve visited the French Quarter, seen the sights, had a few memorable meals, and don’t want to leave without bringing home a little bit of New Orleans. A visit to Aunt Sally’s, home of the “Original Creole Pralines” may be in order.

How’s this for a selection of treats: Triple Chocolate, Bananas Foster, Café Au Lait or Sugar & Spice (Tabasco® Flavored) pralines. Aunt Sally’s cooks up these sugary delights daily. Speaking of sugar, there’s even “lite” pralines with 85 percent less sugar for those trying to minimize damage to the waistline.

This New Orleans confectionary, first opened in the 1930s, also sells an array of gifts, including cookbooks, mugs, pecans, cocktail mixes, syrups and gift baskets. If you don’t want to carry your purchases home, order through Aunt Sally’s toll free number or Web site.

Aunt Sally's is a short walk from Café Du Monde, and not far from the French Market. Lots of samples ... ©2010 All rights reserved.
