We ship via UPS, Fedex, and USPS. We pick the most economical shipment method based upon your order. Shipping charges are calculated and shown during checkout prior to payment and order completion. Ground flat rates are based upon total order cost, and 2nd Day and Next Day rates are based on the weight and destination of the package. All orders are shipped from Bryan, Ohio. If you require a specific shipping method, please contact Customer Service.
Who can order from this web site? Is it for businesses only?
We sell to individual consumers, organizations, and businesses. You can order by the bag, box, or bulk case. We have no minimum order requirement. Ordering multiple quantities of an item helps lower your shipping cost as compared to the total order cost. You can also place an order and have it shipped to another location - such as a business or to a friend as a gift.
Where do I include delivery instructions for UPS?
We sometimes get requests to deliver before a certain time, leave the package in a specific location, etc. Currently, we are not able to pass these instructions on to UPS. You can give delivery instructions that will stay in UPS's files by calling 1-800-PICK-UPS or setting up a UPS account.
Can I pick up my candy order myself at your warehouse?
Right now we do not have a pick-up option available. However, you can purchase candy items, including bulk lollipop cases, at our Store & Museum in Bryan, Ohio during business hours. Please see our store and museum page for information and location.
Why is shipping so expensive?
We have developed a competitive ground flat rate based upon your total order cost. Next Day and 2nd Day orders are calculated by weight and location. Bulk candy is heavy, so shipping costs can be high compared to other lighter items you may purchase on a web site such as jewelry, CDs, electronics, clothing, or flowers.
To lower your shipping costs, we use a ground flat rate for items up to $250 and standard ground delivery. We use a flat reduced percentage for orders over $250.
A 5% discount is applied to all items ordered if you are signed up for our Spangler Auto-Ship program. Take the hassle out of keeping track of it - we will do it for you! Simply tell us what item, what quantity, and how often, and we will set up an auto-ship & bill program for your company and any branches or subsidiaries if applicable. Contact Customer Service at 1-800-628-2639 to subscribe to this easy program.
Special discounts apply to yearly dollar volume customers over $25k per year - please contact our Customer Service for details.
For most items shipped via UPS, Fedex, or USPS, you will receive an email with your tracking number included (if you provide your proper email address during checkout).
When will I receive my order?
We ship within 1-2 business days. Your package will take between 1-5 days in transit, depending on your location (2/3rds of the US is 1-3 days with the Western states being 4-5 days).

Do not include Saturday or Sunday in your order processing or shipment calculations. Next Day and 2nd Day orders take priority and are processed first each business day.

Order Guarantee - Returns/Exchanges
Satisfaction is guaranteed on all orders. If you receive an order with candy that is missing, damaged, or not the item you ordered, please call or email us within 5 business days of the receipt of the order, as determined by our shipment tracking information. Note that large orders may be shipped in several different boxes and arrive on different days. Please also note on flavor assortment items that not all flavors will be in every bag or box. Sometimes, due to wrapper changes, one or more of the flavors may not be packed out for a short period of time.
We cannot guarantee any meltable items. We cannot accept returns on opened candy. For returns or exchanges on unopened candy packages, please call us with your order information.
