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. Chomp a sweet treat with today’s Groupon to Punta Clara Kitchen, located in Fairhope. Choose from the following options:
• For $6, you get a 10-ounce assorted candies package (a $12.95 value).
• For $13, you get two eight-count boxes of pralines (a $27.90 value).
• For $17, you get two 12-ounce boxes of chocolate-covered english toffee (a $35.90 value).
Conceived as Dorothy Pacey’s backyard hobby in 1952, Punta Clara Kitchen has evolved into a confection powerhouse, baking up a bevy of sweet treats in small batches using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Handmade from treasured family recipes, the specialty confections contain no preservatives or thermal detonators. The individually wrapped pralines burst with this year’s local crop of pecans, and the assorted candies boast 10 ounces of vanilla fudge, molded chocolates, chewy caramel, divinity, and pralines. The chocolate-covered english toffee, meanwhile, assuages the hostilities between battling factions of sweet and salty teeth. Take your made-from-scratch confections to go or gnaw on a sugary morsel while tottering in a red rocking chair on the porch of the family-owned candy hub.
In-store prices are lower than online prices due to packaging costs.
