Without candy, trick-or-treaters would go door-to-door filling their pillow cases with apples, paperback copies of The Hardy Boys, and sadness. Experience sugar highs instead of sugar lows with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of confections from Sweet Candy Company.
The crew at Sweet Candy Company, which was founded in 1892, stocks a 180,000-square-foot facility with an expanding selection of confectionery treats, including more than 50 flavors of taffy that satisfy manifold sweet-tooth desires. Get your hands sticky digging into a mixed bag of saltwater taffy ($11 / 2.5 lb.), containing a choice of up to four flavors such as rum, raspberry, chocolate, or venetian blind. The gourmet chocolate sticks conceal orange, raspberry, and cherry jelly in shells of milk or dark chocolate ($4.49 / 10.5-oz. package), and the cinnamon bears fuse sweet and spicy heat to tingle dormant taste buds ($13 / 5-lb. bag). A menagerie of sugar-free treats such as caramel taffy whirls ($17.95 / 3-lb. bag) leaves plenty of room for extra servings of sugar cubes when visiting horse country.
