Although corn is now a pop icon, it built its fan base through standing gigs in breakfast cereals and furtive poems published under the pseudonym C. Cob. Celebrate corn’s stratospheric rise with today’s Groupon to Gji’s Sweet Shop. Choose from the following options:
- For $5, you get $10 worth of candy, popcorn, and other snacks.

At Gji’s Sweet Shop, customers browse nostalgic penny candies from bygone eras and Chicago-style popcorn popped fresh daily. Popcorn is made from high-quality ingredients and hot-rodded with more than 20 kernel coatings including cheese and caramel. Buyers with indecisive palates can request popcorn tins separated into two or three compartments to accommodate multiple flavors or make room to store a popcorn journal. Patrons can also browse old-fashioned candies often unavailable in modern candy aisles such as Necco wafers, candy cigarettes, and flying saucers ($3.99–$7.99/lb.), alongside a selection of vintage soda pop and a variety of smoothies.
