Although candy often resembles animals, science still maintains that you can't catch a Swedish fish with a gummy worm or raise a Peep on circus peanuts alone. Celebrate candied curiosities with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of candy, nuts, and dried fruit at Sweettooth in Fort Myers Beach.
Sweettooth buoys the spirits of its beachside clientele with a bevy of high-quality snacks and confections. Rock candies ($9/lb.) crunch with crystalline sweetness in watermelon, blue raspberry, cherry, and lemon flavors. Nostalgic candies such as wax bottles ($7/lb.) take taste buds back in time to an era when candy and steak were America's two principal food groups, and Jelly Belly jelly beans ($8/lb.) are sorted according to flavor to save eaters the trouble of searching for their favorites. Like freshly latexed gloves, sugar-free candies such as root-beer barrels ($9/lb.) and gummy bears ($7/lb.) provide a surefire way to perk up a despondent dentist.
Surrounded by non-gummy palm trees, Sweettooth's exterior sports pink and purple shutters set against green and yellow walls. Inside, metal shelves guard baskets of candy, nuts, and swirled lollipops, and blue walls gaze peacefully upon shoppers as they trek across the white-and-yellow floors.
