Before the invention of candy, mankind had to make do with "nature's candy"—fermented cabbage, fruit the monkeys didn't want, and live, feather-covered Peeps. Enjoy modern goodies with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of caramels, brittle, nougat, nuts, and more from AvenueSweets' online confectionery.

AvenueSweets' confection-crafter Agnieszka Jones slow-cooks sweet concoctions in the old-fashioned European style using copper kettles and premium ingredients, earning these creations a feature in Martha Stewart Living magazine and a guest appearance in gift bags at the International Emmy Awards. Locally produced Grade A butter and fresh whole cream comprise the 1-pound boxes of soft, rich caramels or nutty nougat ($18.50 each), eschewing additives, preservatives, and liquid nitrogen. Butter rum caramels combine the buttery lusciousness of caramel with rum’s sapor, while AvenueSweets' signature almond nougat creates a velvety chewiness accented by whole California almonds fresh from the nut farm. Peanut brittle ($13.50 for 1 lb.) or pecan brittle ($15.50 for 1 lb.) produce more snaps than mother-centric insult jokes read aloud at open-mic poetry nights.

Confectionery options can be dandified with dapper packaging, such as gift boxes in five colors ranging from pastel blue to silver, or nestled nicely inside a clear craft pail, twist box, or gift tin. Accompany a toothsome gift with a complimentary gift card with a free personalized message, such as "thinking of you," “best wishes,” or “I'm sorry I bungled up the space-time continuum again."
