Aunt Sally's Pralines

New Orleans' Signature Creole Candy

In the early 1930’s, Pierre and Diane Bagur, second generation New Orleanians of French Creole descent, opened a shop in the historic French Quarter. The store, which looked like an old log cabin, sold a host of New Orleans delicacies including a unique French candy called “pralines.” The clamor for pralines was so high, the Bagur’s also arranged for vendors, riding mule-drawn buggies throughout the Quarter, to sell them in packs of six or twelve they carried nestled in hand-made cotton bales. But visitors further afield wanted them, too, so long before mail order became popular, Aunt Sally’s was selling, and mailing, their delectable pralines worldwide. The shop still exists, and while much of the merchandise has changed over the years, the one item that has not is the buttery pralines the New York Times called “disks of pure joy.”

We're not the only ones who love them!

Southern Living and the New York Times have called Aunt Sally's Pralines the Best Pralines in New Orleans.
