The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but to make it that far you have to be disguised as baked goods. Sneak yourself in with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of sugary treats at Jan's Sweet Treasures in Lodi.
A classically trained artisan of confectionary creations, Janice of Jan's Sweet Treasures paints palates with homemade delicacies prepared with real butter, milk, and cane sugar. Treat tongues to moist chocolate-chip and Dutch-butter cookies ($6 per dozen) or baked bars of rectangular richness in varieties such as peanut-butter–chocolate brownies and strawberry macs, which combine rich shortbread, fresh strawberry preserves, and macaroons ($3 each). Additionally, Jan's pastries, candies, and customizable cakes can feed mouths and fill hungry hands exhausted from days filled with stock-market signaling and sock puppetry.
