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 $15, you get one ticket to a sweets tour of Kensington Market from Tasty Tours (a $30 value). Children ages 7-12 regularly receive admission for $5 and free for children under 7. Samples of sweets such as chocolates, cupcakes, and pastries are provided on the tour.
Tasty Tours' guides escort up to 10 sightseers on 90-minute jaunts to five of Kensington Market's finest bakeries, chocolatiers, and sweet shops. Each tour is chaperoned by a knowledgeable guide who regales groups with facts about the history and finer points of confections. Tourists sample selections and re-sprinkle their powdered wigs with confectioner's sugar at Blue Banana Market, Butterfly Bakery, Chocolate Addict, Miss Cora's Kitchen, and Pancho's Bakery. While collecting samples from each sugar-haven, those on tour will have the opportunity to make purchases at the shops and take advantage of discounts from select merchants.
