When you visit the Instacandi site, you have your choice of nine different options (a tenth option exists for bulk orders for businesses). Once you pick, you write a personalized message, and identify where you plan on shipping the package. All this costs $9.99, including shipping.
What you get in your package is about twenty-five candies, some recent but mostly from yesteryears. Most of the candies are paired off, like two Mary Janes, two Laffy Taffy (though different flavors), two Tootsie Rolls, two giant life savers, and so on. It comes with a card that you personalized during the ordering process.
The ordering process was the most difficult part of trying out the product. Not that there was anything wrong with the process. Just that there were too many choices, that were different but not that different. You have your pick of nine packages:
- Sweet Treats
- Birthday Bits
- Thankful Things
- Happy Candiversary
- I Heart You
- Sorry Sweeties
- Congrats Candi
- Get Well Goodies
- Mindful Mix
The only real difference with the packages is the candy involved. To try out, I went with Sorry Sweeties since I liked the candy mixture the best. The web site offers a simple description of what is offered in the packages. However, you don't have to really see the treats as There is nothing wrong with sending I Heart You for someone's birthday, for instance.
For me, the package arrived via first class mail. In addition to the goodies and card, the bright pink envelope was full of confetti. Time to celebrate.
Overall, it is a nice "bouquet" to send to that someone with a sweet tooth who loves candy. I had to share, but most of these candies I snack on regularly. Greet treat.
Now, here's your chance to win your own choice of Instacandi packages. The giveaway runs at 11:59pm on 4/13/15. You must be US based, or at least the recipient of the package must. Good luck.
