Adults eat candy as a deserved break from the day, whereas children eat candy to fuel high-stakes games of hopscotch and all-nighters spent finding a way to hide underreported lemonade-stand income. Fuel the day with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of candy at Sugar Mountain Confectionery, with locations on Corydon Avenue and Forks Market Road.
Sugar Mountain Confectionery stocks its shelves with domestic and imported retro treats from the United States and the United Kingdom, as well as mountains of Jelly Bellies and troves of sugar-free sweets. Bulk options let connoisseurs stock up on a single favourite or mix and match to their sugar-buzzing content for $.02 per gram, as Sour Patch Kids, Boston Baked Beans, and Whoppers patiently wait to be scooped into shopping bags or hollowed-out wooden legs. Bar-shaped bites include vintage Koo Koo bars ($0.99) and Abba-Zaba bars ($1.89), whose creamy peanut-butter centres have rewarded devoted fans for more than 60 years. Shoppers can adorn their throats or busts of Sir Winston Churchill with candy necklaces ($0.79) or wake up sleepy palates with a packet of Razzles, fruity candies that morph into chewing gum ($1.99).
