Praline Battle: Loretta's vs. Southern Candy...

voodootrane | May 8, 2008 08:59 AM

So, my lone day after Jazzfest, I tried my best to eat my way through NOLA. From the suggestions on here, I staged a praline battle of Loretta's vs. Southern Candy, and imo, Loretta's won. Bigger pralines with a more smooth consistency, which I liked more. I'm not a big fan of nuts, and so I liked the smoother more uniform sweetness of Loretta's. It seemed the pecans in Southern Candy didn't boil long enough in the sugar mixture to take in all the flavor.
