About

Sugar and Crystals and Sparkle, oh my!

Sweet Caroline Confections was certainly a sweet accident. I had been making jewelry for about 2 years, and loved doing craft shows and art fairs. Fast forward to Halloween 2012: the largest craft fair in Ft. Lauderdale was right around the corner and I wanted to create something both sweet and eye-catching as a giveaway for our jewelry customers to enjoy. I decided to make lollipops. I had no molds, and didn't make any special flavors. But despite that, our customers LOVED our candies (jewelry? what jewelry?!). I left jewelry behind and decided to pursue candy making, hard candy lollipops to be exact.

Almost four years later (Sweet Caroline Confections was established in 2012 in Miami, Florida), and our business is doing better than ever. 100% of our business is internet based. We ship all over the world, and have worked closely with high end clients such as Martha Stewart's very own Darcy Miller, Hayley Paige, Today.com, Brides Magazine, Marc Jacobs, Cynthia Rowley's Curious Candy, Miu Miu, GUESS, to mention a few (see them all here->http://www.sweetcarolineconfections.com/#!pressandmedia/c7h8)

We are currently working on opening up a storefront in beautiful Denver, Colorado. We have so many plans and goals for the next few years of our business, we feel like a small storefront in a good area would be the next step to growing our business. This makes us very excited as we love interacting with our customers (when we do shows and fairs).

We truly have a passion for what we do.
Let us create something unique and amazing for your next event.

May your day Sparkle,

Andrea Caroline and Team

DUE TO THE EDIBLE NATURE OF OUR PRODUCTS, WE HAVE A NO REFUND POLICY ONCE YOUR ORDER HAS BEEN MADE. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS. BY PURCHASING FROM SWEET CAROLINE CONFECTIONS, YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS.

IF YOU REQUEST TO CANCEL AND YOUR ORDER HAS NOT BEEN MADE, THE FOLLOWING CANCELLATION FEES WILL BE APPLIED TO YOUR ORDER:

REFUND ON CUSTOM ORDERS:
If your order involves custom designs (such as a design that was created specifically for you that was not previously in our shop, or if it required a custom tag or edible art design) we only refund 50% of your order.

REFUND ON EXISTING DESIGNS (non-custom orders):
If your order has been purchased directly from our shop and involved no custom designing, we reserve the right to withhold 20% of the total amount of your order.

****Please remember that your order has been added to our orders queue the moment you placed your order, therefore reserving a spot that could have belonged to another customer. We appreciate SERIOUS purchases only.

We package each and every order with care (and plenty of bubble wrap and silica gel packs) and have no control over the way the package is handled once it leaves our hands.

Additional policies and FAQs
WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF YOUR LOLLIPOPS?

*Our lollipops do not contain any preservatives; therefore, they are always shipped 7-10 DAYS (2-3 weeks if you are outside of the USA) before the event that they are intended for.

The shelf life of our product varies by location.
Why? Because humidity and heat are hard candy’s worst nightmare, the less they are exposed to, the
longer they may last. A rule of thumb is 2-3 months after production.
DOUBLE BAGGING is available (and recommended) as an add-on to make your candy last even longer (50 cents additional per lollipop).


I WOULD LOVE TO PURCHASE 30 LOLLIPOPS, MAY I HAVE A DISCOUNT?

*Discounts are offered only to orders over 75 lollipops, regardless of lollipop size.
All orders under 75 lollipops do not qualify for any discounts.

GIVEAWAYS, PRODUCT TRADING, EXCHANGES, FREE SAMPLES, PRODUCT CRITIQUES FOR WEBSITES AND BLOGS, AND PHOTOSHOOTS:

*Please note that we do not give our product away; customers are more than welcome to purchase a set(s) of lollipops for any of the reasons listed.


HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I PLACE MY ORDER?

*We always suggest that you place your order as soon as you can. We book several months in advance, and since most of the orders that we receive have a delayed delivery date, there is a chance that we may get fully booked for the month that you are ordering for. Placing your order as soon as you can ensures that you will have a reserved place in our orders queue for that month.

I ONLY WANT ONE LOLLIPOP OR ONE FLAVOR SAMPLE. DO YOU OFFER A SAMPLE BUNDLE WHERE I CAN GET AN ASSORTMENT OF FLAVORS VERSUS HAVING TO BUY SIX MINI LOLLIPOPS OF ONLY ONE FLAVOR?

*All lollipops are fresh and made-to-order, therefore, all lollipops, including flavor samples, are sold in a minimum of 6 lollipops per flavor/design/size.


ARE THE IMAGES IN YOUR LOLLIPOPS EDIBLE? ARE THEY OUTSIDE OR INSIDE THE LOLLIPOP?

*Yes, the images are 100% edible, and they go inside of the candy.


WHAT ARE YOUR MOST POPULAR FLAVORS? WHAT ARE YOUR CLEAREST FLAVORS?

*Passion Fruit, Mandarin, Cotton candy. All of our flavors are delicious, we do not sell a flavor that we do not enjoy ourselves.


WHAT IS YOUR MOST POPULAR SIZE?

*Flat Round Medium is the most popular size and our best seller.
