Before the invention of candy, humankind 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, as well as Easter, with today's Groupon. For $10, you get $25 worth of candy at Candyopolis. Your Groupon is good for sugary goodness at its locations in Quail Springs Mall, Penn Square Mall, Sooner Fashion Mall, Shawnee Mall, Oakwood Mall, and Central Mall.
Each Candyopolis is home to over 1,000 different varieties of sweets, with everything from old-fashioned Depression-era favorites such as licorice Herbert Hoovers and "chewing dirt" to the latest wave of sugary and sour confections (Toxic Waste sour candy, $1.99). Retro sweet teeth will delight at the sight of Abba Zabba candy bars ($1.49), Big Hunk ($1.49), and the Holy Trinity for chewing connoisseurs: Beeman's, Blackjack, and Clove Gum ($1.50 each). Imported and domestic chocolates cohabitate peacefully in neighboring bulk bins, while insurgent bands of gummy worms build IEDs out of Pop Rocks ($0.89) and plot a military coup over Candyopolis's ruling class of imported Haribo gummy bears ($3.99/half pound), which also come dipped in chocolate ($4.99/half pound). With 48 flavors of Jelly Bellies ($5.99/half pound), 50 unique PEZ dispensers ($2.49 each), and 21 colors of M&Ms ($5.99/half pound), each year Candyopolis exports a colorful crop of treats directly to the bellies of local children, children-at-heart, and hopelessly misinformed health nuts everywhere.
Entering each bright and colorful Candyopolis is like stepping into a child's cartoon, except without all the menacing turtles and precariously balanced anvils. Let sugary goodness rain upon you as you infiltrate this emporium of all things sweet with today's Groupon.
