Hey everybody!

I have been looking for a simple and sweet candy swap for ages now.. SO, i simply decided to organize my own..

So, for this swap, all we need to do is- visit a store and get crazy in the candy section :D Buy all that many different types of candy whether it is gummy, hard, sour, sweet, lollipops, caramels, chocolate, chewing gum.. Try to buy smaller packages of candy, therefore you can create a more various candy package for your partner.. and more different things for him to try!

But don't get too crazy, because the package weight limit should be within 250 and 500g (meaning 0.5 - 1lbs).

The rules aren't all that difficult, and the things you should send aren't hard to find at all (you can do this shopping in 15min anywhere), therefore there is one week time for shipping of this sweet package.

This swap is a 100% senders choice, but do look out for the possible allergies or diabetes listed on your partners profile, and in that case always consult with your partner before shopping (and shipping).

I will personally check out all the people who apply and see if they are honest about swapping, and not flaking. I really hope you are as excited about this sweeeeet swap as much as I am.. :)

I wish you all sweet swapping!!

Pam!!! You crazy candy lover :p If you're my partner for this swap, you'll have to send me that crispy/popping chocolate only you croatian know how to make ^^ LOL That's a really nice swap // I'm definitely in :)

Obstminkerl 02/ 3/2011 #

Is it sender's choice? [please say YES ;o)]

charmpam 02/ 3/2011 #

hahahaha.. Oli, how did you find this one out? :D :D Yea, i have a popping candy chocolate already ready to send out, to whoever my partner will be.. @Gusti of course it is.. Just watch out for the possible allergies on your partners` side, kay?

PinkBubble 02/ 3/2011 #

@Charmpam well I'm a member of the European swappers group and received your message about the swap 3 times =] I took it as a sign that I should sign up :D haha I hope I'll be your partner :p haha

charmpam 02/ 4/2011 #

oh, i didnt know you were a part of that group.. hahaha..

Oh gosh, i tried sending it once.. and the entire page froze.. than i tried once again and it went through.. have no idea where the 3rd one showed up from.. lol.. :D

Poing 02/ 4/2011 #

I am still a little hesitating... I wonder if Belgian chocolate would survive international mail very well.

charmpam 02/ 4/2011 #

@Poing huh, Belgian chocolate surely is something that would be a shame to have melted in transport.. But i actually did this swap now because it`s still winter.. therefore there is certainly less chances of that happening now than in the summer..

patumma 02/ 5/2011 #

I am in canada and have received Belgian chocolate in the mail a couple times and it survived just yummy...i mean just fine! ha ha ha

AmiMelody 02/ 5/2011 #

Hi! I'm so excited about this swap! I LOVE candy! Quick Q: I know theres a weight limit, but is there an approximate spending limit/requirement? Thank! :D

charmpam 02/ 5/2011 #

@AmiMelody Well, i set the weight limit as the only one.. because i assume that people cannot reach that amount of candy in a package that is cheaper than 10$.. At least i know i can`t.. so, a certain amount of money is really not a requirement.. just the creativity and the weight..

Naeco 02/ 5/2011 #

I'm in Florida...I would join but I would be scared to receive a box of muddy chocolate! Hahah.

Naeco 02/ 5/2011 #

charmpam 02/ 6/2011 #

@Naeco you shouldnt think like that about the swap.. accidents can happen to every package, there is never a guarantee it will arrive safe and sound.. But i am sure it doesnt happen THAT often as you would assume..

ShabbyJules 02/ 6/2011 #

sounds fun anyone sending to Australia remember it isnr winter here its a heatwave worst we have ever had at present hehe

salex 02/ 6/2011 #

We have amazing candy options here like Gardner's, Hershey's and Gene & Boots so I just can't wait to let others have a taste of them!

charmpam 02/ 7/2011 #

I just wish there was a way to mail ice cream.. coz i never had a chance to taste Ben & Jerry's... and i really wish i could.. maybe one day.. :D

cheriexx 02/ 7/2011 #

I can't wait to shop for this!

fairieangel80 02/ 7/2011 #

this candy swap sound like fun, b/c i love candie...

jenchaos77 02/ 7/2011 #

DIABETIC-So please send a few of the candies sugar free. the ones with sugar I will give to my 6 year old :o)

charmpam 02/ 8/2011 #

@cheriexx - hahaha, i know how you feel.. thats why i created this swap.. I actually already have the big bubble-wrap envelope out and filling it little by little.. just waiting for that partner address.. :D @jenchaos77 - good point, i absolutely forgot to mention it in my swap details.. but do send a message to your partner as soon as they are signed up.. so that he/she has it on their mind while shopping.. :)

Sillyna511 02/ 8/2011 #

I would do this if I could afford to spend over $10 just for shipping, on top of the money spent to buy 1 lb of candy... :( Maybe a regional one sometime?

sosiejude 02/ 8/2011 #

Im up and ready to shop cant wait!hope you will host this monthly......plz as we have some lovlely candy comes out for Easter in March ...Fingers crossed you will...he he thanks

sosiejude 02/ 8/2011 #

Nothing like UK cadbury's chocolate ....yummmy....

charmpam 02/ 9/2011 #

@Sillyna511 unfortunately, i am not from the US, so i am not really able to make a regional swap for that area.. But if someone wants to organize it regionally for USA, they are welcome to do so..

As for organizing this swap on a monthly basis.. Well, we will see how it works out this month.. and than, if people get it right and most of us are pleased with how it turned out, i would L-O-V-E to make this once a month.. except for the extremely hot summer months of course..

Tickyboo 02/ 9/2011 #

hi can you still get big red chewing gum in america? just curious :)

charmpam 02/ 9/2011 #

@tickyboo we even have big red in Croatia, so im pretty sure US has it too still.. :D

Tickyboo 02/10/2011 #

thanks id love to recieve some we dont have it here in the uk anymore :(

salex 02/10/2011 #

I will gladly make a regional for te US once I get one more rating :) I've sent out like 5 things so far, but have to wait for the snail mail to get to them! Haha.

And I can't wait to get my partner (:

And yes, we can get Big red here.

Onaki 02/10/2011 #

I'm allergic to milk chocolate, but I can have anything thats dark chocolate. :) Something about the chemicals they use in milk chocolate makes me ill.

charmpam 02/11/2011 #

@Onaki - make sure you contact your partner about your allergies when the partners are assigned, okay? Because not all of the signed up people take a peek at this comment section.. So make sure you do message them..

Thimblefairy 02/11/2011 #

Can a newbie, like me, join?

charmpam 02/11/2011 #

@Thimblefairy this swap is newbie friendly, but only if you can assure me you are an honest swapper and will send your swap the way it is described..

Thimblefairy 02/11/2011 #

YAY! Thank you!!!

salex 02/12/2011 #

So I picked some candy up today. And if my person can't eat it, more for me! xD

Mammamuh 02/12/2011 #

charmpam 02/12/2011 #

I went shopping the first thing today.. :) and my package is already packed and ready.. :D I just have to wait for monday to mail it, coz our post offices dont work weekends..

Thimblefairy 02/12/2011 #

salex 02/12/2011 #

I have to wait as well :( But Monday, it will be sent (:
