Frequently Asked Questions
Where do you get your products from?
We source locally and also import our candy.
How fresh is your candy?

I'm not sure if I will like a particular sweet. Can you send me a sample?
Sorry, we do not send out samples.
Why is your American candy more expensive than other products?
Our range of American candy is imported and so the cost of shipping and import duty is built into the price. If we did not do this, we would not be able to offer these products. However, we make sure our American products are priced fairly and competitively.
How much does shipping cost?
Shipping costs vary according to location. See our delivery section for a breakdown of shipping costs.
I live outside Ireland and the UK, why is shipping more expensive?
Unfortunately, shipping to countries in mainland Europe and to the USA is more expensive due to the greater distance the products must travel and also due to the weight of the products. Candy and soda can weigh quite heavy when ordered in large amounts.
