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. Celebrate man's triumph over nature with today's deal: for $7, you get $15 worth of candy from Candy & Canvas, located downtown.
Candy & Canvas specializes in retro mouth-blasts from the past. Line shirts with candy buttons ($0.95) or dazzle the tongue with razzles ($1.50). If you can't choose between Charleston Chews and Sugar Babies, pick up a 2.25-pound box of mixed retro candy ($22.95). Confections and confits make mouth-pleasing gifts, uplifting everyday treats, and, when smelted down to slag, a helpful aid in crafting shingles for gingerbread homes. Bulk candy comes in more than 170 varieties and is sold at $5.95 per pound.
Along with heaping buckets of sweet treats, Candy & Canvas offers an unusual concept. The heart of the business is an old-fashioned candy shop, yet the walls of the heart are bedecked with original art by Chad Lubbers. The colorful, acrylic paintings of abstract swirls and wildlife studies act as candy for the eyes, without the painful side effect of weeping lemon drops. With today's Groupon torn into shreds and used to mark the path back to papa's cabin, pay a visit to Candy & Canvas, load up on treats for yourself, friends, family, and candy-loving pet coyotes, all while enjoying original art by a local artist.
