If you have a sweet tooth, and find yourself in Nashville, look no further than Savannah’s Candy Kitchen. They’re the largest candy company in the Southeast, housing fresh, handmade confections.

Best known for their pralines, they’re producing them onsite with on-demand samples, and you can best believe I got one. They were sweet and delicious and melt in your mouth. They also make their popcorn right in front of your eyes.

You can also get samples of the popcorn, and, yeah, I did that too. It’s not just regular  popcorn, it’s fancy popcorn flavors like Chocolate Pecan Caramel Corn, and Pralines N Cream, just to name a few.

In addition, you can find monster sized candy apples, with flavors for everyone. If you’re still searching for more, they have a variety of taffy flavors, fudges, gelato, and other chocolate confections. And if some of these are a little too sophisticated for the kiddies, there’s a wall of self-serve gummies, fruit and sour candies to load your bag up with.

Think of the best salt water taffy you’ve had. Now, forget about it…because you obviously haven’t had one from Salty Road, another company on my October Brooklyn Candy list.

I think the goal of each new company making something that already exists, is to make it better than other products out there. Salty Road, well done. Starting off by hand-pulling the taffy out of an apartment, they’ve definitely perfected it. There are a number of unique flavors, and I chose Salty Carmel Apple.

Let’s start with the texture. I would say similar to most taffies, but, a bit smoother and creamier. Now, let’s talk about taste. Oh. Sweet. Jesus. This little taffy is packed with flavor, I thought I was eating a miniature apple pie, no joke. Rich in flavor, you get hit with apple and cinnamon, and then discover little tiny bursts of saltiness. The apple, cinnamon, salt…yup, apple pie.

The biggest problem, it’s hard to stop after just one.
