This is an international swap.

A friend of mine is traveling through Asia for a year and he has been sending me candy about twice a month. His awesome packages made me want to start a candy swap! So, here are the rules...

Each swapper will send 3 different candies to 2 partners. Try to find types of candies or chocolate that are made in your area or country so that your partners will have a chance to try something new.

Update! -How much is one candy?- Good question: One regular sized candy (or chocolate) bar can count as 'one candy'. If you send hard candies/caramels then 4-5 would count as 'one candy'.

Important: If you have a peanut or other allergy you should post a message below to let your partners know! Likewise, post a message if you do not eat gelatin or any other ingredients.

Is this swap a candy bar like swap? Is the candy around that size?

swapperk 03/ 1/2007 #

Sounds great! I don't care for black licorice, dark or white chocolate! You can't have too much candy on hand!!

user5257 03/ 1/2007 #

I would like to sign up but, is everyone welcome? What about people with no sends, and newbies with barely filled out profiles?

alliec 03/ 1/2007 #

Baglady: It can be candy bars, hard candy, fudge too I suppose. Anything sweet and decadent! Thanks for the questions, I've updated the information for the swap to include an answer.

Anisa: Newsbies can definitely join. We all have to start somewhere, right?

Brittercat 03/ 3/2007 #

The only kinds of candy I don't like is dark chocolate, black liccorice, and peppermint.

craftywitchygirl 03/ 6/2007 #

I love all kinds of Yummi candies: Hard candy, sour candy, fruit flavored candy, caramels, chocolate, etc. I would like something that it's traditional from your place. Something that you know that only exists there. But any candy is awsome!

user5455 03/ 7/2007 #

What a wonderful swap! I love all kinds of candy but especially chocolate.

BUT, I am gluten intolerant so please try to find something without wheat, corn, rye or oats! And if you can't find anything....I have two kids who loves candy too :)

alliec 03/ 7/2007 #

I don't eat gelatin and I hate black licorice. Everything else is great.

bethanne 03/ 8/2007 #

Anything without hazelnuts is great for me! I can't wait!

craftersbag 03/ 8/2007 #

I love dark chocolate,milk chocolate,almonds and coffee flavors.

nylelyn23 03/10/2007 #

I don't wish to receive licorice or anything with alcohol or liqour in it. Tootsie pops are great. Or anything fruity or chocolate mints. Everything, basically! =D

user4986 03/13/2007 #

hello I have to buy yesterday by making my races my sucreires and especially specialities of France I await with impatince it my my girlfriend

Aerochik 03/14/2007 #

Great idea, this will be a special treat for my kiddos, I try not buy too much, but this way I can say it was a gift for them and I don't have to feel guilty keeping it away from them!!!!

Tunrida 03/15/2007 #

No sweets with gelatin or liquor on them for me, please.

msteacher 03/17/2007 #

The only problem you will have if you send chocolate-keep in mind some states in the lower climes are starting to warm up. Shipping chocolate requires a cold pack from April-October.

user6663 03/17/2007 #


lastslade 03/18/2007 #

I love chocolate - whom am I kidding I love all candies- it is getting warm here in Florida so chocolate would not be good... darn. Please no hard candies and candies with nuts in it, thanks!

shopinc 03/18/2007 #

Anything's great for me! :)

Goddess 03/18/2007 #

I'm excited about this swap. I'm a huge sweets freak especially candy! I'm open to any type of candy. I love surprises. :)

nazca 03/19/2007 #

DylansMama 03/20/2007 #

My first Swap! Im so excited. I cant wait to see what kind of crazy candy people come up with!

nylelyn23 03/20/2007 #

I'd also like to add that preferably no gelatin in the candy, unless it's from vegetable sources. Thanks!

btw, when is the partnering results gonna come out? i'm anxious!

user7101 03/20/2007 #

Hooray! I'm a newbie too but can't wait to send some yummies from this part of the forest your way. I've no allergies and will eat just about anything chocolate,fruit flavored or in a brightly coloured wrapper. Thanks Allie!

April7x 03/21/2007 #

Just letting you all know, I have no allergies so knock your socks off!

uncoiledtiger 03/22/2007 #

craftersbag 03/31/2007 #

nylelyn23 04/ 3/2007 #

Dear allie and craftersbag, I hope you'll wait at least sometime til the swaps goodies arrive. I think it will take 10days. please don't worry, i did send them out. so i hope i don't get a no-send. :)

user7007 04/ 3/2007 #

I received my swap from noon in pajamas yesterday. Wow! I think you sent three times the required amount of candy. But oh what fun to go through the box!! Thanks so much, my boyfriend has already devoured the orchard jellies, and I fell in love with the little chocolate mushrooms! - so cute!

craftersbag 04/ 3/2007 #

It's cool nylelyn I understand about shipping. Mine went to Canada and Finland so it might be awhile before they get there things too.

nazca 04/ 4/2007 #

I received today a very beautiful and delicious letter from Anna thanks a lot, I like peanut butter...

Engflo 04/ 4/2007 #

Packages to Fiona and Dana were sent out today. Finally!! Hope they arrive soon...

lottebees 04/ 5/2007 #

I noticed it kinda takes a while for my things to get outside Europe. So to Tartlover07 and nylelyn. Your things did go out in time, I'm just hoping it wil get to you quickly.

Tryph 04/11/2007 #

What a lovely end to my first swap: great packages from Nazac and Aerochik. Thanks!

user7101 04/13/2007 #

Hmmmmm...almost 3 weeks after the deadline and still no package from isabelled...(looks out of window wistfully)

user7007 04/13/2007 #

I am also waiting for a package from isabelled. I did send an email this morning, hope to hear back soon. K-ROCK Oh also Vee, have you received my emails or package? I sent it to arrive within 9 days.

user7007 04/13/2007 #

Nine days from 3/26/07 that is.

user5455 04/16/2007 #

I do hope that my packages have reached their destinations by now. I have not received any ratings nor do I see anything written about it here. Usually it only takes a few days for mail to reach the US from here...

craftersbag 04/16/2007 #

I never received anything from Tartlover what a disappointment.

user7007 04/17/2007 #

I looked at the list for this swap, and some people still say not sent. Craftersbag - it looks like Tartlover fell off the face of the Earth. I still have not received rating or a response to any of my emails from Vee, and I still have not received a package from Isabelled, or a response to my email. P.U. love, K-ROCK

Petra 05/ 4/2007 #

It seems like my other partner, LoveAnatomy hasn´t even send her swaps yet... Great.

Engflo 05/14/2007 #

Yattaaaa!!! I love the package I received today!!! Thanks Tunrida!! The candies are soooo beautiful! (`.´)/

user5455 05/19/2007 #

Strange, I sent my packages a month ago and still no feedback....I do not even know if my packages have reached their destinations :( I know for a fact that it only takes about 2-5 days for a package from here to the us.
