Like Ponce de Leon, elderly goats often disappear in shame after searching for the fountain of youth in human candy shops. Find your inner kid again with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of candy and treats at Sweet Spot in West Broad Village. Hurry to get your sweet tooth on, since this Groupon only lasts three months.
Sweet Spot keeps the quintessential candy shop spirit alive with modern, fresh twists. Hand-selected unusual eats and traditional treats stock Sweet Spot's shelves with a range of bricolage of goodies ($0.25 to $30). Any self-respecting food pyramid will flip on its pointy ear to accommodate both the bulk candy ($2.75 per 1/4 lb.) and bulk chocolate ($3.25 per 1/4 lb.). A multicolored mélange of clear jars stand out against the crisp orange-creamsicle walls of the boutique interior. Sugar rushes commence atop metal stools and a crisp white candy consumption counter, beneath a glow-giving globe lamp. The shop continues to radiate its friendly vibe through in-store events for families, like its upcoming candy bingo night and its fundraiser for the societal acceptance of sour patch adults.
