Classy Girl Cupcakes exclusively bakes cupped cakes, and boasts an extensive selection of flavors of both traditional cupcakes and cheesecake cupcakes. Traditional cupcake flavors include an almond pound cake topped with vanilla buttercream frosting, a dense dark-chocolate confection created with decadent Ghirardelli chocolate, and a deep-red velvet cake. More than 30 creative flavors of two-bite-sized cheesecupcakes are offered, including the caramel apple cheesecake, made with organic baked apples and an optional sprinkling of nuts, or the candy-rich Snickers cheesecake for a decadent cupped dessert. All of Classy Girl's creations are baked from scratch in small batches, with all natural ingredients, such as unbleached flour and hand-shucked corn.

Goody Gourmet's specializes in adorning popcorn and other treats with a sweet shellacking of inventive flavors and toppings. The pop shop's friendly staff crafts more than 10 creative corn varieties on a daily basis, including medium-size bags of caramel ($8.50) and jalapeño ($7.25), and large bags of lemonade ($4.50) and white chocolate ($10). For customers of a sweeter persuasion, Goody's handmade confections provide chocolaty respite with batches of cacao-covered snackables, such as almond clusters ($4.50+), pecan turtles ($4.50+), double-dipped graham crackers ($3.15+), and pretzel rods ($4.40). Goody also bags up hull-less caramel and cheese puffs for those unable to consume the puff's pop-corned cousin.
Froyo Bella scoops four flavors of frozen yogurt onto their menu monthly, all of which carry the National Yogurt Association's seal denoting live and active probiotic cultures. After garnishing a 5-ounce cup of yogurt with one of more than 40 toppings, spoons can burrow into mounds of classic chocolate, only to be lured from their lairs by mouths promising roomy kitchen drawer-organizers. Clouds of Blueberry Burst flavor-drench granola or cheesecake clusters in a sweet, purple downpour, and nonfat flavors such as Classic Tart bedeck themselves in kiwi cross-sections. In addition to hoarding stores of calcium and riboflavin in their frosty nooks, many of Froyo Bella's flavors contain less than 100 calories per half-cup serving, which guests can shed by performing blinking calisthenics at the shop's flat-screen TV.
The luck required to pull a winning combo at Half Nuts, unlike the chance involved in scaling Gumdrop Mountain, is little because of the superabundance of savory sweets and a pleasant lack of molasses mudmonsters. Half Nuts stocks sugar-free candy, a huge variety of nostalgic sweets, and the 50 official flavors of Jelly Belly jellybeans. Swish open a bag and fill it with assorted nuts ($1.79–$17.99 per pound), chocolates ($3.99–$13.99 per pound), and unwrapped candy ($1.79-$7.99 per pound). Or, prepare for little-red-hooded rides to Grandma's house with a gift basket full of chocolate-covered nuts and color-coded jellybeans (starting at $19.69 for a two-pound basket). This Groupon is not valid for M&M's.
Cold Spoons Gelato dishes up frozen Italian treats made from fresh ingredients, compressing mounds of flavor into a sweet, mouth-massaging dairy delight. A rotating list of available flavors ensures several gelato varieties ($3.25 for small, $4.50 for medium, $5.75 for large) are on tap on any given day. Mix, match, and blend gelato flavors to cure clinically depressed taste buds, or try a gelato shake ($4.75), which blends the singular snack with the bone-, teeth-, and facial-hair-strengthening power of milk. Drop in to grab a quick dessert after a dinner out, or pick up a to-go pint and share a spoonful with a special someone or special taxi driver.
