Shipping Times & Methods
We ship via UPS, USPS, and Fedex (if required). We pick the most economical shipment method based upon your order. Free ground shipping is included for all orders in the United States (Alaska and Hawaii excluded). Expedited 2- Day and 1-Day shipping methods are available for an extra charge. These expedited charges are based on order weight, destination, and speed. All orders are shipped from Bryan, Ohio. If you require a specific shipping method, please contact Customer Service.
We process most orders within 1 business day. Your package will take between 1-4 business days in transit, depending on your location. If you have supplied your proper email, you will receive tracking information to determine the shipment location and arrival time. Large orders may be shipped in several different boxes and arrive on different days.
For standard ground shipments, we choose the shipping carrier that is least expensive and will get your shipment to you on time. For rush shipments, we generally use UPS. To request a specific shipper, or to have the shipment billed to your shipping account, please contact us.
We offer Next Day and 2nd Day options for rush shipments. Add 2 business days for order processing and pick the appropriate shipping priority. 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. The cut-off time for order processing each day is 12:00 noon.
Pick-up Option not Available
We do not have a pick-up option available. A new Candy World store and museum will be opening on the downtown square in Bryan, OH in late 2023. Check the store and museum page for details.
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. We are not able to pass these instructions on to UPS. You can give delivery instructions that will stay in the UPS files by calling 1-800-PICK-UPS or setting up a UPS account.
Why is shipping so expensive?
Free Standard Ground shipping is included with your order for all orders in the United States (excluding Alaska and Hawaii). Expedited 2-Day and 1-Day shipping methods are available for an extra charge, and are calculated by weight, destination, and speed. Bulk candy is heavy, so shipping costs can be high compared to other lighter items you may purchase online such as jewelry, CDs, electronics, clothing, or flowers.
