Without the promise of sweets, mouths would never have the patience to stay open during dentist's appointments or closed during beekeeping demonstrations. Keep mouths copacetic with today's Groupon to JonJohn’s Bakery. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of any cookies, cakes, and baked goods.
- For $18, you get two dozen peanut-butter balls (a $36 value).
Name-sharing owners Jonathan and John spoil patrons with a host of handcrafted confections, all anchored in high-quality ingredients, such as farm-fresh organic eggs. Bakers tuck sweet potatoes, sugar, and spices into sheets of warm piecrust when sculpting sweet-potato pockets ($3.50 each), perfectly sized for individual dessertists. Each jumbo muffin ($3.50) can soak up one full gallon of coffee while keeping bellies company through lunch, where Beyond Chocolate cookies ($1.50 each; $18/dozen) offer sweet endings to midday meals with dark-chocolate chunks. To potentially improve eyesight while definitely increasing cream-cheese content, customers can snatch up a carrot cake, a classic treat speckled with raisins ($12 for small 6-inch cake; $25 for two-layer 6-inch cake).
Peanut-butter balls earned their local fame at JonJohn’s Bakery by dazzling tongues with the timeless flavor combination of chocolate and peanuts. A crispy rice center awards each brave bite through the orbs' shiny shells, which, like ball gowns, refine appearances and are made from dark chocolate.
