Our top choice for pralines offers the usual suspects and some non-traditionals (coconut and sweet potato!), and all are just extra creamylicious (and made fresh right in front of you—if the display doesn’t reel you in, the aroma will). We swoon for the pecan-laden tortues; the boxed chocolate crawfish and gator pops make fine gifts. In addition to its original location, it also has a French Market shop at 1010 Decatur St. (tel. 504/525-6170; daily 9am–6pm).
