Before the invention of candy, mankind had to make do with "nature's candy"—fermented cabbage, fruit the monkeys didn't want, and live, feather-covered Peeps. Get a taste of sweet innovation with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a bag of nutcracker sweets, a half-pound of fudge, and one bag of saltwater taffy (a $31.80 value including tax), at Kilwin’s of Lake Worth, located on historic Lake Avenue in Lake Worth.
Kilwin’s chocolate- and ice-cream specialty shop soothes sweet teeth of all ages with a sumptuous assortment of homemade confections. Grouponnoisseurs can feast their palates and peepers on a collection of handcrafted confections that are made fresh in-house before their very eyes. Meet the daily crunch quota with the 24-ounce bag of homemade nutcracker sweets, a crackling concoction of almonds, pecans, and caramel corn, that serves as a vegetarian alternative to the doll's usual diet of sugarplum fairies (a $16.95 value). A half-pound of flavored fudge tantalizes taste buds with flavors, such as chocolate, maple walnut, peanut butter, toasted coconut, vanilla, and butter pecan (a $8.10 value). For bellies in need of a briny bounty, a bag of Kilwin's saltwater taffy welcomes tongue laps with salty-sweet flavors including cherry, chocolate, orange, lemon, raspberry, mint, and blue–a mysterious flavor falling somewhere between cotton candy and the tears of heartbroken Cubs fans (a $4.95 value).
In 1947, Don Kilwin struck upon the perfect method for making candies and chocolates—and when you discover perfection, you don't abandon it. That's why almost 70 years later, the chefs at their dozens and dozens of locations across the country still use old-fashioned copper kettles, marble slabs, and Howdy Doody puppets. And guests can see the proof of that: the glass-walled kitchens afford a clear view of the delectable goings-on as the dreamweavers conjure cashew brittle, caramel apples, fudge, and 40 flavors of ice cream. A steaming mug of coffee, hot chocolate, or cider pairs perfectly with these sweet treats.
