A 20% restocking fee and the shipping charges to and from our warehouse will be applied to candy received back at our warehouse due to undeliverable addresses or customer refusal of packages.

Since food products cannot be returned, and we do not refund for melting, please take care when placing an order and keep in mind the following (if you have any concerns or specific requirements, please call us before you place your order): We do offer ice packs for sale.
1. Quantity: Think through and calculate how much candy you will need for an event or project.
2. Taste: Manufacturers sometimes change their recipes, and your taste buds change too.
3. Color: Some of our products are hand-made in batches and color may vary. Colors may also look different from one computer monitor to the next.
4. Brand Variance: Different brands of candy like gummies, taffies, caramels, etc. vary in consistency, texture, firmness, etc. So, the same types of candies made by different brands will not always taste the same (e.g., European-brand gummies tend to be harder than American-brand gummies).
5. Heat: If it is warm in your area, stay away from heat-sensitive items as we do not refund for melting! And always make sure someone is around to receive the package. We do not ship over the weekend during warm months. We also sell ice packs and insulated foam during hot weather months.
6. Mistakes: Double check your online order before hitting that submit button!
Of course, if we make any mistakes with your order, we will take full responsibility – just make sure that you contact us within 2 business days of receiving your order, as we cannot approve any requests for refunds/reships after such time.
REFUSAL OF PACKAGE:
If parcels are refused, original and return shipping costs will be charged to the purchaser's original form of payment.
As soon as an order is processed into our fulfillment system (which can be seconds after you push that submit button), it cannot be cancelled.
