What is it about fresh fudge that brings out the kid in all of us?

The excitement we feel when we step into a shop and the air is filled with the aroma of fresh chocolate stirring in the kettle. At Louisiana Purchase we celebrate the kid in all of us with over 15 flavors of fresh from the kettle fudge. We take great pride in our fudge and that is why we use nothing but the finest ingredients including fresh cream, butter, and wonderful Louisiana pecans.

What is a Praline?

The Praline is known in the U.S. as a delicious Creole candy consisting of pecans, sugar, butter, and cream. During the 19th century French settlers brought this recipe to Louisiana where both sugar cane and pecan trees were plentiful. New Orleans chef’s substituted pecans for almonds, added cream to thicken the confection and thus created what became known throughout the American South as the Praline!

There are two common pronunciations of praline the usual pronunciation in the Southern United States is PRAW-leen while in other parts of the country PRAY-leen is the more commonly accepted pronunciation.
At Louisiana Purchase we celebrate the great history of the PRAW-leen by continuing to make them with fresh cream, butter, sugar and Louisiana pecans.

  • "I just have to brag on your fudge and your store. We visited yesterday and purchased 4 flavors of fudge, needless to say they didn’t survive the day. We ate every bit and I was asked why I didn’t purchase more. Your store is awesome! We will be stopping in on our next drive through the area. Thank you for such amazing service!

  • "Love this store!!!! The owners are so nice. Every time I come to town   to see my daughter at NSU from Oklahoma I stop in. The fudge alone is worth it, but I love all of their merchandise. They always make me feel home since I am from Louisiana and miss it so much. "

  • "The place for desert on Front Street. The fudge is smooth and creamy with good flavor. My wife says the pralines are the best she’s ever had. Lots of doo-dads to browse while you graze. "
