Kings are often faced with difficult challenges, such as subduing an uprising of the Gingerbread People and marrying off a daughter to Lord Licorice to regain control of Candyland. Make a candy-driven power play with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of candy and gifts at The Sugar Shack in Bastrop.
Voted Small Business of the Year by the Tri-County Small Business Summit, The Sugar Shack satisfies sweet tooths and tongues with mouthwatering candy displays, homemade goodies, and thoughtful gifts. Fans of well-dressed fruit can fill empty paws with hand-dipped chocolate-covered strawberries ($10 for six). As with training for a marathon or sumo competition, sugar supporters should start small, easing their way into snack bliss with tiny treats such as Jelly Belly jellybeans ($4.50/lb.) and chocolate-covered peanuts ($4.50 for 1/2 lb.) before moving on to more challenging comestibles such as chocolate malt balls ($4.50 for 1/2 lb.) and jawbreakers ($5.99 for 1/2 lb.). In addition to display cases laden with trays of homemade white-, milk-, and dark-chocolate bites, visitors will find classic packaged candies such as Skittles and Hershey bars ($1.29–$1.59). A wealth of cheerful gifts such as 22 oz. Yankee Candles ($24.99) adorn the walls, ensuring no birthday or dog obedience-school graduation goes unappreciated.
The roadside confectionery ranch emblazoned with the Texas flag is surrounded by ample parking and boasts a comfortable back porch seating area with free WiFi. Enter this sweetopia and indulge in the deluge of colors and infatuating smells, taking care not to get lost amid the towering wall of candies, lollipop-tree stands, and white-water chocolate river.
