Meyer'Shouse of Sweets
Since before the advent of windshield wipers, the Meyer family has been whipping up fresh treats, hand-poured creams, and homemade jellies and caramels. Those with glucophobia can opt for sugar-free vanilla-walnut fudge ($7.99 for half pound) or a tub of sugarless taffy ($5.25 for half pound, $9.95 for a pound). For everyone else, Meyer's House of Sweets rivals Candy Land in terms of delicious décor and a sequence of play that forms a mathematically perfect Markov chain. Feast on at least 24 rotating flavors of fudge (including caramel pecan, Bailey's Irish Cream, and rocky road), 16 flavors of natural ice cream, or an impressive collection of chocolate-based confections. Chomp on European-style truffles that are almost too pretty to eat, or bite into cashew-rich bark. All chocolates are $17.95 per pound and are available in half-pound, pound, 1.5-pound, and two-pound boxes.
