Before the discovery of chocolate, Easter was celebrated by eating only raw eggs and Hershey sold nothing but wrappers filled with regret. Celebrate sugary breakthroughs with today's Groupon: for $17, you get one pound of chocolate-covered strawberries at Nandy's Candy (a $34 value).
Voted Best Sweet Shop in 2010 by Mississippi Magazine, Nandy's Candy fills mouths with carefully crafted confections. Nandy's sweetmongers brew all sugary treats in small-batch copper pots, giving each tongue-tickling morsel the kind of individual attention usually reserved for precocious children at summer camp or litters of puppies dressed up like a mariachi band. A summer specialty, each chocolate-covered strawberry is hand-dipped in Peter's Chocolate, encasing succulent fruit in toothsome cacao armor. While picking up a pound of chocolate-covered berries, customers can peruse the store's extensive selection of sugared delights, browsing through such paragons of sweetness as hand-crafted truffles, toffee, and powdered home videos of laughing babies.
