Although candy often resembles animals, science still maintains that you can't catch a swedish fish with a gummy worm or raise a Peep on circus peanuts alone. Celebrate candied curiosities with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of candy-coated nuts and fresh-fruit smoothies at Jonny Almond Nut Company, located in the Franklin Park Mall.
From a booth in the Franklin Park Mall, Jonny Almond Nut Company coats pecans, cashews, almonds, and peanuts in more than 15 candy flavors in small batches made by hand. A conical bag of cinnamon-roasted almonds or honey-roasted cashews ($6 each) wards off the mall munchies, as the sound of their satisfying crunch wards off mall bears. More exotic coatings include english toffee, maple, and blueberry ($6 each). The stand also vends caramel- and candy-apples ($6 each) and a selection of frosty fruit smoothies ($5) in flavors such as strawberry, lemon lime, and wild berry—a rowdy amalgamation of raspberry, blueberry, grape, and liquefied teenage rebellion.
