Pecans are widely celebrated for their rich taste, high protein level, and ability to be whittled into squirrel canoes. Set your taste buds afloat with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet treats at Tanner's Pecans and Candies, which has three convenient locations: one primary location on Springdale Boulevard and one at Holiday Place on Old Shell Road in Mobile, and one at the Tanger Outlet Center in Foley.
Tanner's assortment of handcrafted candies, pies, and gift baskets cast a spotlight on fresh, locally grown pecans. Wrap your smile around forkfuls of chocolate chip pecan pie ($19.50), a deep-dish taste explosion of nut and rich cocoa, or surprise a fellow dessert fanatic with the maple pecan fudge gift box ($17.95). Containers of praline candied pecans ($15.95) showcase Rubenesque nuts flaunting Creole-spiced sugar gowns. Sugar-free and kosher items also abound in the treat emporium. Swing by one of Tanner's shops to pick up gourmet confections before the holidays, when confections are notoriously scarce.
