Before the invention of candy, mankind had to make do with "nature's candy"—fermented cabbage, fruit 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 nuts, candy, frozen yogurt, and sweet gifts at Greene's Fine Foods. This deal includes sales tax and is valid toward sale items.
The rich aroma of roasted nuts and the sugary smell of freshly made candy waft around bright green striped walls and collect in the lofty ceiling of Greene's Fine Foods. The shop's specialty, Georgia mammoth pecans, comes in a flavor rainbow of chocolate amaretto, mesquite barbecue, praline, and more ($7.50 for a half pound). New crop pecans are available after the fall harvest. A more bounceable gift, the "Please do not feed the gummi bears!" 1-pound gift bag ($8), can be customized to tote gummi critters such as butterflies, jet fighters, army men, and rattlesnakes rather than the standard bears. Business gifts and frozen yogurt are also available.
The majority of Greene's taste-bud tempters are crafted on-site from the finest chocolate, nuts, and stardust (all gifts are packed by hand). Since this Groupon is good for anything in the store, take a pal to Greene's private rooms, where you can watch the candy being created. Brothers Tommy and Phil Greene have strived to make visiting the bright and friendly store a memorable experience, rather than a forgettable foray to find rock candy in a gravel pit.
