Many lucky people will receive gift baskets from River Street Sweets in the coming days. Valentine’s Day means sweets for our sweeties; to those of us in Savannah, sweets means River Street Sweets.
River Street Sweets originated in an old warehouse on historic River Street. It started out in 1973 as “The Cotton Bale,” a gift shop that did not sell sweets. By the end of the decade, an enormous fudge making pot was added, and shortly after that, their “World Famous Praline” recipe was born. Thus The Cotton Bale was transformed into River Street Sweets.
Most people who stay in our Savannah Vacation Rentals eventually find their way to historic River Street and the original River Street Sweets store. Those who do are rewarded with free samples. The samples are a savvy marketing move, since it is practically impossible to taste one treat and not want more.
Gift baskets, gift tins, gift boxes, gift towers….you can offer your love a small token of your affection, or give a veritable monument. You could place your order on line, or you could do something even better: bring your sweetheart to the store.
