Some examples include but are not limited to: Famous Amos Cookies, Little Bite Muffins, Cracker Jacks, Big Texas Cinnamon Rolls, Fruit Roll Ups, Cheeze Its etc.
Order Cancellations - If you decide for whatever reason to cancel an order after it is placed within 24-48 hours but have cancelled it before it has shipped we have the right to pass along our credit card processing fees to the customer. The fees are as follows American Express is 4.75% of the sale and .30 per transaction. Visa, MasterCard and Discover are 3.75% of the sale and .30 per transaction. There are no fees associated with PayPal or PayPal Express checkout. If an order status is in Processing that means that items have been pulled from inventory and the order is ready to be packed.

FREE SHIPPING ON ORDERS OVER $100.00 - only applies to orders shipping to the contiguous U.S.. During the warmer months of the year free shipping is offered for all customers whose orders meet the requirements - however that does not mean that for chocolate or other meltable items that free shipping will prevent the orders from melting. Please read below about shipping during the warmer summer months or into warmer climates.
Here Are Some Things To Know About Shipping Candy Into Warmer Climates - For chocolate candies being shipped between May 15th - Sept 15th we strongly suggest using FedEx Overnight or 2nd Day Air. If your temperatures are over 80 degrees at any time of the year then the Summer Shipping Rules would apply to you year round. We recommend 1 (one) Ice Pack per chocolate item ordered. These ice packs last approximately last 18-24 hours in 80-89 degree heat, when fully frozen and they are reusable for lunch boxes and coolers.
When shipping into warmer weather climates or during the summer months please make sure that the items are shipped to a location somewhere where they can be directly taken inside and allowed to cool to room temperature undisturbed. Items ordered in warmer weather and left on your front porch until you come home from work will simply not survive the summer heat.
The Candyland Store will do its best to assure safe delivery of your candies but the ultimate responsibility for the safe delivery lies with the customer to make sure that the proper arrangements are made for receiving the goods and bringing them into a cooler environment. Melted chocolate, gummies, jelly beans or other such items are not considered damaged goods and claims will not be honored on such items.
