I was worried about the condition the candies would come in, since they are very fragile. Candy Crate did an excellent job making sure they were protected from rough travel. Thanks!

It arrived as a gift to a friend earlier than I thought which was GREAT, especially since it went to Hawaii. My brother-in-law loved it - not only the novelty of it, but the candy was really good too.

Excellent... I pleased with how quickly my order was shipped & how cheap your products were compaired to other websites. Thank You for everything.
Dear Candy Crate, I recently ordered from you and just wanted you to know how delighted I was not only with the candy and it's freshness but also the SHIPPING! I am in Texas and it is hot here. I did order the 2 day faster shipping with the ice pack - and the candy arrived in tip-top shape - fresh and crisp in each box upon arrival. The candy was a BIG hit - something the recipient had not seen since childhood - she was delighted !!!!
