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. Nibble on a futuristic find with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of sweet treats at Snacks by the Pound located in Feasterville.
Snacks by the Pound's shop houses a hodgepodge of old-time candy, homemade fudge, novelty treats, and more for any confectionary connoisseur. Fill an empty jar or a court judge's pockets with gourmet goodies such as the chocolate-covered pretzels ($15.95/lb.), gummy bears ($6/lb.), Swedish fish ($6/lb.), and Bonomo's Turkish taffy ($1.75 each). Or feast eyes on the colorful, custom-made gift baskets, packed with delicious treats and unique treasures all delicately wrapped in a swaddle of cellophane for any occasion. Snacks by the Pound's devotion to dessert has helped sate the sweet teeth of esteemed clients such as the Philadelphia 76'ers hoopsters and the governor of Pennsylvania, as recent reform calls for bills to be written in Fun Dip.
