There are a lot of candy swaps on Swap-bot, but most of them are for chocolate. Let's do something different! The catch is you must send candies packaged in colored wrappers using one of each of the colors of the rainbow. The idea is to open a package full of color and to send and receive as much variety as possible. Try to send something gummy, something sour, some hard candies, some gum, etc. Chocolates are allowed, but let's try to limit it to two. A lot of variety with this swap!!

Sender's Choice! You will need to send seven full-sized candies packaged in wrappers in one of each of these following colors:

  • Red
  • Orange
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Blue
  • Indigo/Violet (send purple!)
  • Sender's Choice color. Could be pink, black, brown, silver, etc. Not one listed from above.

No fun size or minis, and no individually wrapped candies from larger bags are allowed. This is for full-sized bars/packs/tubes only! Pretty much anything sold at checkout counters is game!!

Please remember to include a note with the swap name and your user name.

Amount spent before shipping should be around $5-7 USD. Please note, this is an international swap and plan for shipping costs accordingly.

Swap requirements: At least a 4.8 rating. No 1s and no 3s allowed without explaination. Must have completed at least 15 Type 3: Package swaps. I will remove anyone that I feel is not acceptable. I will ask for angels, if necessary.

Happy Swapping!

Has the candy got to match the colour of the wrapper?

Great Idea! Love the name! This is going to be a really fun swap. Thanks for setting it up. Postage shouldn't be too bad either!

AnnaLou 01/30/2010 #

No, the contents do not have to match the wrapper color. The colored wrappers are just a way to ensure a variety.

AnnaLou 01/30/2010 #

@craftymomme08 I love international candies and am hoping to get an international partner, but no, not at all, please do!! Would you mind linking back to my international swap, as to maybe generate more interest? Thanks!
