Candy by nature is a heavy product. The size of the package depends on the product itself as items can vary in size. For visual purposes, a 5-pound bag of gummy bears may fit inside a 2-Liter soda bottle, whereas a 10-pound box of jelly beans may also fit in the same-sized container.
Although we do not have a physical location where customers can come to view or pick up products, all of our products are conveniently accessible at the Candy.com website [http:www.Candy.com]. Our website offers more than 6,000 products with high-quality pictures, sizes, prices, and descriptions. We also offer highly competitive shipping rates for our customers. If there are any details for a product that you need further information, please contact our friendly customer service staff at 781-335-2200.
We would recommend that at a minimum you place an order with our company at least 3 to 4 weeks in advance of a special occasion to ensure:
Shop around our website as we do offer many of our candies in different pack sizes. If you see an item in only one size, we can only ship that size. It is one way we keep our prices low.
Unfortunately, we currently do not offer samples of our candy products. You would need to contact the manufacturer of a certain candy to obtain samples.
Candy.com does offer an assortment of Kosher candy products. We try to consistently update our products to ensure their accuracy especially in terms of it being kosher. We have double-checked each and every item that makes it into our kosher category, but from time-to-time, manufacturers may change the status of their products without notice. We cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in these terms. For more information regarding the kosher status of a product, feel free to contact a customer service representative and we’ll be glad to do some research for you.
The information listed on the product descriptions should only be used as a reference. For the safety of all candy-fans, we highly recommended that you contact the manufacturer directly to obtain allergen statements and updated ingredient listings for any concerns regarding allergies. Although the description may not state the allergen, the manufacturer would have the best knowledge on the current status of allergens for their products.
Candy.com does allow you to filter on specific food groups and allergens to help you make your choices.
If you are looking for a specific type of product, please use our easy to navigate categories on the Candy.com website. There you will be able to find a vary of labels including gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, and even sugar-free confections.
In the unlikely case an item is out of stock, Candy.com will notify you within 24 hours of processing your purchase. In the case of an out-of-stock item, your account will be refunded the purchase price of the item as well as the shipping costs associated with the out-of-stock item. In many cases we carry "like items," which are very similar items, but manufactured by different companies. We will also make you aware of these options.
There may be several reasons why the product may taste or look different than the candy you purchased at the store.
If Appearance: The product that you ordered may be manufacture by a different company- the products may have slight differences in ingredients and how they were made. For example, you might think there is only one company that produces a gummy bear, but on Candy.com, we have over 15 different manufacturers of gummy bears. Please double-check that the product you are purchasing is manufactured by the same company.
If Texture: Some variances in texture may be due to the temperature of the product. For example, a gummy that was just delivered to a cold location, may be harder in texture than a gummy that has been stored in room temperature for at least 24 hours. HINT: Try to leave the product properly sealed at room temperature for a day or so, this will allow the product to rest correctly and will have that delicious taste and feel you have grown to love. Caramels fall into this category.
As a general rule of thumb, expect that most guests may take about 4oz of candy each. If you are making the goodie-bags, buy one pound of candy per three guests. You will need to pre-assort the selection prior to distributing the goodie-bags. However, for those who are setting up a candy buffet, you may want to purchase one pound of candy per two guests. This calculation will allow for the jars and containers to appear full as well as account for guests that may take more than 4oz each.
As we are trying to be a green company, we have decided not to print a catalog. If we were to print a catalog, it would be thicker than a telephone book. Every day we increase the selection of sweet products and want our customers to have all of the most updated information when they purchase at Candy.com. All of our products are located on our user-friendly website. Guests are encouraged to customize the view through categories and colors to find that perfect candy for their needs. Our customer service representatives are also available to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have and will also be able to give recommendations on other similar items.

Shipping costs for any carrier rely heavily on three factors: the weight of the box (the heavier the package, the more expensive the cost), the destination of the package (the further away from the East Coast to ship, the more expensive the cost), and the speed of the service (the faster to deliver the package, the more expensive it may be).
At the moment, FedEx requires a physical address to make a delivery. No deliveries will be made to POBOX or APO addresses.

Let’s face it, no one likes melted chocolate (unless you are making chocolate fondue). We recommend storing all heat-sensitive products in a cool, ventilated area. Temperatures above 75 degrees and sunny areas typically will cause candy to melt. During warmer weather months, we strongly urge you to be careful when you are ordering heat-sensitive items. Candy.com cannot guarantee from meltage or heat-damage. To minimize any damages, please select an expedited shipping method such as 2 day shipping. Our heat resistant packaging is only good up to 48 hours.
We do not recommend that you store chocolate or gummies in the refrigerator or freezer. Doing some may cause chocolates to develop a thin white film on the outside (called blooming). During the defrosting process, chocolate and gummies will begin to sweat and will also affect the aesthetic appearances of the candies. Although it will still taste good, it may not look too appealing.

Okay, let’s double check the item you received against the invoice for your purchase first. If the item purchase is the same item then this might be a match color variance (for example, if you purchased pink gummies and received a package of a lighter shade of pink gummies). Because manufacturers produce candies in large batches, the color of the finished product may appear slightly different from one batch to another. Additionally, you may want to look at the item on a different computer monitor to confirm appearance as monitor settings may alter the color of the picture being viewed. If the color appears to be extremely different than the represented item on Candy.com, please contact a customer service representative for assistance. Please do not open or consume the product if you believe the product is incorrect – items without the original manufacturer seal will be void of any claim.
