Default Sweetwater’s Sweets

I know those little bags of Halloween candy from Sweetwater have come up a few times here… but I was surprised to find a bag included with a $6 set of bridge pins that shipped for free. The bag of candy was bigger and heavier than the actual order. Pretty cool gesture, even though I probably will give away the candy.

There are many reasons to order from them but none better.

We shop there in person and so can usually dodge the candy. Even so, there's 3 or 4 bags around the house.

I give the bags of candy to my daughter. She's 26 now and still loves them.

Before I retired I'd put them out in the hall and students would take them away.

I know it's silly but I'm just a big kid at heart. The packs of candy always make me smile and I'm not even going to be the one that eats it.

I am a "sucker" for their branding even though I do not partake. I have even had a call from the Prez thanking me for my purchases over the years. Now that is something. I am a fan

It’s amazing how much good will gets generated at very low cost with those bags of candy. It’s a win-win for Sweetwater, no question about it.

I agree with all the above. At heart, we’re all just overgrown kids!

Hi all

My wife loves them! And I sent something from Sweetwater to my kids, and the grandkids loved the candy too!

The candy didn't make it into the last order I made a few months ago, so I wondered if they'd phased it out. Glad they still seem to be doing it, it's a fun little extra.

My kids love the candy but I always snag the Bit-O-Honey before I give it to them!

I was very disappointed that my last order from them didn't include candy. It was one of those Hercules 5-guitar racks that shipped in the manufacturers box.
