2020 marks our 85th year cooking New Orleans’ best pralines, and we’re excited to carry this tradition into the future. From selling our pralines out of a log cabin in the French Quarter in 1935, to our international fanbase today, we're committed to cooking up the finest sweets using quality ingredients and our original family recipes.
Aunt Sally's Original Pralines have been made since 1935 using the original family recipe, cooked and poured daily and entirely by hand, yielding a thin, slightly crispy candy packed with fresh pecans. The Creamy Praline follows a recipe invented by Aunt Sally’s in 2000, and it is a thicker, more fudge-like candy.

Aunt Sally's Then
Aunt Sally’s was founded in the tightly knit French Creole community of New Orleans in the early 1900s. In 1935, Dianne and Pierre Bagur opened the first Aunt Sally’s Praline Shop in a commercial strip of the French Quarter known as the French Market. They sold hand-made pralines, along with a collection of retail merchandise representing New Orleans culture and Creole traditions. Over the next several decades, the family opened more stores, created new recipes, and modernized their production facilities, evolving into an iconic New Orleans brand.
Aunt Sally's Now
Today, Aunt Sally’s headquarters is located just blocks from the Mississippi River, the Superdome, and New Orleans’ Central Business District. Our flagship store still sits just steps away from the French Market across the street from Jackson Square. Every day the sweet scent of pralines bubbling in copper pots dances out into the surrounding neighborhoods tempting locals and visitors alike.
