Though a spoonful of sugar may facilitate the ingestion of medicine, doctors recommend a mouthful of sugar to facilitate the ingestion of everything else. Treat sweet teeth to sweet treats with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of baked goods at Mr. Cheesecake in Bradenton.
For more than 20 years, the sucrose-savvy maestros at Mr. Cheesecake have sated chattering chompers with an array of confections, including pastries, pies, and their eponymous cheesecake. Nibble dreamily through a sugar-laced roster of mini pastries, such as cream puffs, cannolis, chocolate-dipped brownies, and éclairs, sold individually ($1.50) and by the dozen ($15). Originally used as a citrusy facemask for clowns, key lime pie pampers tongues with smooth, zing-infused flavor ($10), and bites of traditional cheesecake ($2/plain slice) coat throats with creamy decadence so they can better sing along to arias at the opera house. Patrons may also ask for their cheesy slice adorned with toppings, such as cherry, blueberry, and lemon ($3/slice).
