Candy delivers more sweetness than a drop of honey, and does so less painfully than kissing a hummingbird. Leave the nectars to the birds with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of candy and frozen yogurt at Campus Candy.
Visitors to Campus Candy take in the bright colors and eye-pleasing shapes of more than 500 types of bulk candy, each of which may be used as toppings for its frozen yogurt. Like actors in daytime soaps, frozen yogurt varieties change daily ($0.49/oz. without toppings; $0.59/oz. with toppings), often encompassing fat-free selections and flavors such as key lime or hot-fudge cream puff. While listening to pop songs broadcast throughout the store, visitors can browse its bulk candy selection, which typically includes sweets such as chocolate-covered coffee beans, chocolate-covered gummi bears, and jolly ranchers ($2.89/lb.). After browsing the selection, sweet eaters may unwind with their purchase before the store’s plasma TVs or take advantage of free WiFi to video chat with international Ring Pop enthusiasts.
It was a fateful day that Campus Candy founder Mark Tarnofsky dropped his daughter off at Indiana University about four years ago. On a mission to track down a simple candy bar, the dutiful dad found himself roaming far afield until he finally landed at a distant drugstore. Convinced that college kids want candy within constant reach, Tarnofsky started his first store right there, and soon expanded to the schools in Wisconsin, Arizona, and Pennsylvania. Each outlet sells more than 500 different types of candy, all of which may be repurposed as toppings on a rotating menu of frozen yogurt. By slinging bulk candy at a fixed price, Campus Candy stores make it easy for college kids to load up on diverse desserts without filling their schedules with bonbon-making classes.
