Although candy often resembles animals, science still maintains that you can't catch a swedish fish with a gummy worm or raise a Peep on circus peanuts alone. Celebrate candied curiosities with this Groupon.
$30 for Gummy-Candy-Making Class for Four ($60 Value)
During 90-minute classes, up to eight guests expand their gummy knowledge as they sample candies made from various gelling agents. They then create their own molded gummy candies to take home, pausing to sink spoons into two scoops of complimentary, all-natural ice cream. This class is suitable for ages 4 and older and is available from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday–Saturday, and between noon and 4 p.m. on Sunday.
Pete Behringer's passion for sweets ignited at the age of 14, when his mother founded Peterbrooke Chocolatier, the site of his first job. Pete’s profession hasn’t changed in three decades, and his passion and talent for handcrafting artisan confections has flourished. His insistence on weaving together simple, all-natural ingredients with an artisan touch earned him the proud title of Chocolatier of the Year for his gourmet chocolate treats, many of which are gluten-free, at Jacksonville's 2012 Taste of Chocolate Challenge. Within his candy shop, a century-old picturesque Victorian nestled in historical Springfield, he displays rainbows of jellybeans, sour gummy bears, vegan and gluten-free products, and colorful lollipops shaped like animals, airplanes, and Rorschach blots. When he's not spinning natural cane sugar into edible masterpieces, Pete hosts candy-making classes, parties, and events in his candy shop or on location. Sweet Pete's was featured on CNBC's The Profit in 2014. And now the company has teamed with Marcus Lemonis to open a 20,000 square foot candy shop.
