What You'll Get
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. Savor the evolution of sweets with today's Groupon: for $3, you get $6 worth of candy, gelato, and other sweets at Powell's Sweet Shoppe. This Groupon is valid at the Clovis location only.
Powell's sports a vast collection of confections that covers the entirety of the nostalgic scale. Dig for long-lost saccharine treasure at the bulk candy wall ($9.99 per lb.) or cocoa-coated sarcophagi such as succulent turtles and chocolate-covered pretzels ($4.50 per 1/4 lb.). Powell's also serves up freshly scooped servings of gelatos classicos (creamy, rich, Italian-style ice cream), coolly served in anything from a child's cup ($2.95) to an adult regular ($4.95) to straight into cupped hands (price negotiable). To-go pints are also available for picnics, birthdays, or igloo-apartment ribbon-cutting ceremonies ($7.95/pint).
- Michael Powell, president and CEO, and Print Cates, director of franchise operations, couldn’t be happier with their 18-store enterprise, Powell’s Sweet Shoppe. The themed stores deliver a moment in time, 5,200 different candies, and perma-grins all over the West Coast. – Sue Gillerlain, Professional Candy Buyer
- This is exactly what Clovis needs: family-owned specialty shops. I was so happy to see Powell's get into the new, improved SVM complex. They've got everything the other reviews describe...my favorites are the novelty and specialty drinks, the bulk jelly beans (try the 'hot buttered popcorn' flavor...seriously), and GELATO. – Philip T., Yelp
