Returns & Refund Policy
Due to candy being a perishable item and in compliance with The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) policies, candystoreforme.com does not accept any return on candy products. Edible (ALL CONSUMABLE FOOD PRODUCTS) may NOT be returned. All return/refund requests must be made to our Customer Care department within 7 business days of receipt of your order (determined by Fed Ex tracking) AND must be authorized by customer service in advance. To protect our customers’ health and safety, candystoreforme.com only accepts returns of non-edible items that have not been worn or used (apparel, accessories, etc.). Refunds for returns exclude shipping costs, and the customer is responsible for shipping the products back to us in their original condition. In some cases a 20% restocking fee will be applied, but rarely charged. 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):
Think through and calculate how much candy you will need for an event or project.
Manufacturers sometimes change their recipes, and your taste buds change too.
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.
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).
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.
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 7 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, there will be a 20% restocking fee, and the original cost of shipping, to and from, will be deducted from refund amount from the purchaser's original form of payment.
We will often pull, pack, and ship an order within minutes of our customers placing it. As soon as an order is "complete" into our fulfillment system (which can be seconds after you push that submit button), it cannot be cancelled. Of course you are welcome to call us and check whether an order has been completed and if it has not, we are happy to process your cancellation. However, if a customer care representative sees the order has been "completed" into our fulfillment system, they will be unable to cancel it. We have spent an extremely large amount of resources to develop and create this extremely quick and efficient automated turn-around system and if we were to cancel an order already completed, that one act would interrupt our entire fulfillment cycle (potentially affecting hundreds of other orders). We appreciate your understanding on this matter and we urge you to please take the time to carefully make your selections before hitting that submit button!! If you are unable to cancel your order but still want to return the products, you have the option of returning or refusing the package once it arrives at your destination (see details above regarding returns and refusing packages). If the order is en route and delivery is refused, you will be responsible for shipping costs as well as the cost of return service. If the order qualified for Free Delivery when offered you will be credited the cost of merchandise, less the 20% restocking fee, less the actual cost of shipping, to and from, as determined by candystoreforme.com

Timely DeliveryWe cannot issue credits or refunds for orders not delivered on specific dates unless (1) you notified us that you needed the order by a certain date AND (2) the order is shipped via Fed Ex Next Day or Fed Ex 2 Day.
