Consume chocolate-dunked vittles without citation with today's Groupon: for $16, you get one pound of chocolate-covered strawberries ($32) from Nandy's Candy on East Northside Drive. Voted Best Sweet Shop by Mississippi Magazine in 2010, the family-owned candy store concocts a variety of smile-inducing seasonal confections using gourmet Peter's Chocolate. Step inside to peruse handcrafted truffles, fudge, nut clusters, and more, and to pick up your package of sweetly coated berries. Although one pound of hand-dipped chocolate strawberries ($32) weighs the same as one pound of feathers, it has a greater gravitational pull when falling toward a crowd of open mouths.
