About

Living the Sweet Life

My connection with candy comes from my roots. Particularly, the burnt sugar. I have childhood memories of my siblings and I taking a spoonful of sugar and holding it over the gas stove until it melted and burned. We would then let it cool and eat it right off the spoon. I was too young to remember the candy of my native country, Romania, but my older siblings fondly recall the candy of their childhood. They would often talk about it and wish they could find the same candy of their childhood to enjoy and share with their own children. I have come up with a recipe that is all my own, but yet still preserves the traditional barley candy that is well loved by so many. ~Doina

Payment
• You may cancel an order at any time. However, once I start processing your custom order, it no longer qualifies for cancellation.

• PLEASE CHECK YOUR ETSY MESSAGES after you place an order. Often times I need more information before I can process your order. For example: Your color/flavor combination may not be compatible and a new color or flavor must be chosen. Unanswered questions about your order will place your order on hold for up to 3 days. APFOS reserves the right to make decisions for you or cancel your order.
Shipping
• You will receive an automated e-mail with a tracking # once your order has shipped. IT IS THE CLIENT'S RESPONSIBILITY TO TRACK THEIR PACKAGE AND RETRIEVE IT THE DAY OF DELIVERY. (please see refund policy below)

• PLEASE NOTE: Since the USPS does not guarantee delivery within 2-5 day time frame, I don't either. In the event that your order is delayed by the carrier, and does not make it in time for your event, there will be NO refunds, shop credit, etc.

• PACKAGING FEES: Packaging materials and handling fees are included in all shipping costs. Occasionally, especially with the larger orders, shipping cost adds up to an excessive amount. In this case, I will issue a refund for the excess shipping charges when your order ships. However, be prepared to pay what you're being charged just in case.

• UNDELIVERABLE ADDRESS: It is the buyer's responsibility to provide/confirm the correct shipping address during check out. Shipping cost of a returned package due to an incorrect address is the buyer's responsibility. Please see our NO REFUND policy below.

• INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: After many inquries about shipping internationally, I decided to give it a try! Only the isomalt sugar gems/diamonds are available for international shipping at this time. When ordering, please consider the climate you live in. Delivery can take up to 3 weeks. Order at your own risk. All sales final. Buyer is responsible for any custom or duty fees that may be charged to them upon receipt of their package. You may find the isomalt sugar gems here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/APocketFullofSweets?ref=hdr_shop_menu§ion_id=21602172
Refunds and Exchanges
• THE UNPLEASANT: (but must be stated)
Due to the fact that I produce custom made, edible products, I can not accept returns, exchange or give refunds. NO EXCEPTIONS.

• ORDER CANCELLATIONS:
If you do not agree with my policies or you want to cancel an order, please contact me ASAP. A full refund will be issued as long as your order hasn't been processed yet. In the event that your order has already been processed, it will no longer be eligible for cancellation/refund.
Thank you for understanding. :-)

• POSSIBLE MELTING:
I've shipped thousands of orders here on Etsy through all seasons with great success. IT IS THE CLIENT'S RESPONSIBILITY TO TRACK THEIR PACKAGE AND RETRIEVE IT THE DAY OF DELIVERY. Even an overnight delay in a hot climate can make a difference. If you contact me the DAY OF CONFIRMED DELIVERY, I will work with you concerning any possible melting. For claims purposes, clear photographs MUST be attached to your first/original claim. I will not accept photos from days or weeks later.

• Once the candy is in the client's possession, it is the client's responsibility to store the candy per the included instructions. I do not replace, give refunds, issue shop credit due to negligence.

• JEWELS/GEMS/DIAMONDS:
Many of my clients have used my sugar gems for cake decorating with great success. Unfortunately some have not been so lucky. There are many factors that can cause the gems to melt such as environment, humidity and type of icing used. It is the client's responsibility to do their own research. I do not replace, issue refunds, or shop credit if the gems melt while in use.

• MILITARY ADDRESS: (overseas)
Delivery overseas can take up to 3 weeks and when it's hot, the risk of melting/damage is high. Order at your own risk.

**I take every precaution necessary to package the candy with the utmost care. In the unlikely event of breakage, all packages are insured (included in shipping) up to a $100 value. You may purchase additional insurance to exceed the $100. (please contact for info) All damage claims must be handled by the client through the USPS. I do not issue refunds or offer replacements for broken pops/damaged/lost packages.
Additional policies and FAQs
• FOOD ALLERGIES:
Please be advised that the candy is produced in a facility that processes the top 8 allergens. However, equipment is not shared and there is very little possibility of cross-contamination. Due to the Barley being used to make the candy, my candy also contains Gluten.

• TURNAROUND TIME: Please see the shop announcement on the shop's main page or the FAQ section located at the bottom of each listing. I keep this info updated. If you're in a hurry and need your order sooner than what's stated, please consider the "Rush Order Processing Fee" found in the "Add on" Section of the shop.

• HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I ORDER?
To secure an order with me and avoid Rush Fees later, consider placing an order approx. 2 - 3 months in advance. Specify an "event date" or a "receive by" date when checking out. Your order will be placed into my scheduling queue and shipped approx. 10-14 days prior to the date you give me. (please allow 2-5 days for delivery)

• LARGE ORDERS AND WHOLESALE:
I do not offer wholesale or bulk discounts. The price per pop is the same whether you purchase 1 dozen or 100 dozens. My candy is made in small batches, hand poured and packaged. The same care and attention to detail goes into each and every order, regardless of size. :-)

• I WANT TO ORDER ONLY ONE SET OF LOLLIPOPS BUT WANT DIFFERENT COLORS AND FLAVORS:
Since my products are custom made per order, the minimum is 1 color and 1 flavor per set as listed. However, I usually offer the most popular listings in an assortment of colors/flavors. You may find them in the READY TO SHIP section of the shop. https://www.etsy.com/shop/APocketFullofSweets?section_id=11797341

• FREE SAMPLES:
I do not offer free samples or products for blog reviews. Legitimate bloggers understand that there's a conflict of interest if they're offering reviews for free products.
I personally wouldn't trust the integrity of a review when the product was given for free in exchange for the review. An unbiased review is so much more meaningful.

• LETTER POPS (custom phrases and words):
Under NO circumstances will I create a custom order of the letter pops to spell or phrase any type of profanity, hate and/or discrimination. APFOS® reserves the right to define what is profanity, hate or discrimination.
