Like corn dogs, popsicles, and SpaghettiOs, some snacks just taste better on a stick. Arm yourself with a flavor saber with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet chocolate apples, pretzel rods, cookies, and more at Applelicious on West Main Street in Carnegie. This deal is valid for in-store purchases only.
Applelicious sates saccharine chompers with hand-dipped granny smith apples adoringly coated in a savory concoction of sweet and salty toppings. Each dewy-eyed apple is ensconced in a layer of creamy vanilla caramel and two extra layers of rich milk chocolate before tumbling down a salty slide of nuts and candies and drizzled with a salacious sprinkle of white or peanut-butter chocolate ($9.95/small, $12.95/large). Eschew lackadaisical lollies for Applelicious's bestselling roasted-cashew apple, which tickles ears with the sweetened crunch of freshly roasted cashews enveloped in ribbons of white chocolate.
Confectionery connoisseurs can conduct a taste-bud concerto with a gourmet pretzel rod slathered in a symphonic blend of sweet chocolate, caramel, and fresh toppings ($3.95). Distraught closet monsters are easily pacified with treats such as gourmet cinnamon grahams ($1.75), buckeyes ($4.95/package of six), pecan caramel turtles ($1.75), and chocolate- and sprinkle-sheathed Oreo cookies ($4.95/four).
