What You'll Get
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 with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of candy at five Candyopolis locations in Towne West Square, Towne East Square, Central Mall, Manhattan Towne Center, and Westridge Mall. This Groupon is valid for in-store purchases only.
Each Candyopolis is home to more than 1,000 different varieties of sweets, with everything from 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 sink into Abba Zaba candy bars ($1.49), Big Hunk ($1.49), and the Holy Trinity for chewing connoisseurs: Beemans, Black Jack, 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 ($0.99 each) and plot a military coup over Candyopolis's ruling class of imported Haribo techno bears ($7.99 per bag). With 48 flavors of Jelly Bellies ($11.99 per bag) and 21 colors of M&Ms ($11.99 per bag), 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.
