Hello! My name is Sheri George. I am a born and raised New Orleans, Louisiana native. I am the Owner and Operator of “ Sheri’s Creole Mama Pralines.” I have been making praline candy since 15 years of age. Over time, I have mastered my recipe, as well as tried new things with my candy making process. As a result, I have come up with 30 flavors of pralines and counting.
I started making candy as a form of therapy. I would share my candy with family and friends, whom gave amazing feedback. Many would say I should sell my candy. So in 2013 I decided to start my business. I opened my very first store in Bay St. Louis, MS. As a resident, I saw there was a wonderful opportunity. Bay St. Louis was the perfect market for my candy; there was minimal competition and no other business possessed what I had to offer. I started out with 9 basic flavors of pralines. Before I knew it, I was up to 12…..and then 15!
My ultimate goal is to share, not just the taste, but the experience in my candy; with as many people I can reach. My candy is my home. Not just my New Orleans home, but my home within myself. I put a lot of me into my product. And I feel that is reflected in my craft.
