Shipping & Returns

SHIPPING

USPS, UPS, & FedEx? We let you choose! You can ship Next Day, Second Day, Third Day, or Ground Shipping. This insures that our customers get the cheapest shipping prices possible.

We do not look to make money on shipping; instead we simply pass on the costs. No handling or packaging costs are charged. So All shipping charges are calculated using USPS, UPS, & FedEx shipping tables in the m account page.

 

Please keep in mind the following:

*We require up to 2 business days to process your order (even with expedited orders) If you need an order to be processed earlier please contact us immediately and we will try to do our best to process the order within the limited time frame but cant guarantee. An order must be received by 12:00 p.m. (PST) for the day the order was placed to qualify as a “business day”

*We can’t guarantee of shipment and reserve the right to cancel or modify orders depending on availability. We carry thousands of products and to make our inventory is fresh we may at times not have certain items in stock.

Returns & Refunds

All returns exclude shipping costs and it is the customers’ responsibility to pay for shipping the products back. A 20% restocking fee will be applied to all returns.

Before placing orders we recommend you keep all of following in mind as we do not accept returns for food products or melted candy (please feel free to call us before placing your order)

 

  1. Quantity: ordering for an event or project can be difficult sometimes, so ensure you think through and calculate the amount you will need.
  2. Taste: Rarely but sometimes manufacturers will change their recipes and your taste buds change too.
  3. Color: from one computer monitor to the next the colors may look different and some of our products are hand-made so colors may vary slightly.
  4. Brand Variance: All brands of candies do not have the same texture, consistency, firmness, etc. For example, 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 or get expedited mail which comes with free cold packs (this method minimizes the chances of candy melting as cold packs melt within 2-3 days)
  6. Mistakes: Before submitting orders please double check for accuracy

 

If for any reason we make a mistake with your order, we will take full responsibility. Please make sure to contact us within 10 business days of receiving your order, as we will not be able to approve any request for refund/reships after such time.
