Candy, like Santa Claus, can bring a smile to a child’s face, and causes a frenzy when repeatedly flung from a parade float. Stir up a sugary smile with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get two 6-ounce candy packages at Fiona’s Sweetshoppe. The packages include the following:

  • Cola bottles and cubes
  • Gummy peaches and bears
  • White grapefruit and pineapple chunks
  • Yorkshire and sports mixtures
  • Midget gems
  • Strawberries and Cream
  • Lemon Fizzballs and Fizzy Wizzys
  • Chocolate fruits and limes
  • Australian black and mango
  • Strawberry Bootlaces
  • Chocolate-covered raisins, nuts, and ginger
  • Mint-chip malt balls
  • More types available<p>

Fiona’s Sweetshoppe’s expatriate owner lends both her name and penchant for British and Scottish confections to a critically acclaimed confiserie decked out in Olde English sweetshoppe charm. Black-lidded jars stock four rows of shelves with traditional British wine gums, tart, white grapefruit slices, and mint-chip malt balls, perfect for after dinner or for sneaking into a movie theater in case someone in the front row is wearing a bull’s-eye sweatshirt. Lemon Fizzballs and cola cubes effervesce in puckering mouths, and healthful nuts and raisins lurk beneath layers or rich, milky chocolate.

Fiona’s Sweetshoppe

An MD is one of the last people you’d expect to harbor a candy obsession. But Dr. Fiona of Fiona’s Sweetshoppe wholeheartedly embraces hers. When she relocated from the UK in 2005, Fiona couldn’t shake cravings for some of her homeland’s signature sweets—the same condition that drove colonial settlers to revolution. She finally silenced them by opening her own shop of British and European favorites. Fiona’s Sweetshoppe stocks candy beloved by children across the pond, from British toffee and Cadbury chocolate to gummy frogs and cola cubes, a cola-flavored hard candy. For those who can resist devouring their treats immediately, a variety of fanciful bags, tubes, boxes, and tins adorned with feminine flowers and enchanting stars line the shelves to package sugary gifts for friends, family, and recovering nutritionists.

The people who work there are super nice (and patient with the kids, who seem to lose their minds there).
