Like Ponce de León, 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 in Short Pump. Hurry to get your sweet tooth on, since this Groupon expires on December 31, 2011.
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 bricolage of goodies ($0.25–$30). Any self-respecting food pyramid will flip on its pointy ear to accommodate both the bulk candy ($2.50 per 1/4 lb.) and the bulk chocolate ($3.25 per 1/4 lb.). A multicolored mélange of clear jars stands out against the crisp orange-creamsicle walls of the boutique’s interior. Sugar rushes commence atop metal stools at 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, such as its monthly candy-bingo nights and its fundraiser for the societal acceptance of sour-patch adults.
