Frequently asked questions


I'm pretty fussy about my candy. How do you pick your products?

Totally understand. We are also VERY fussy. We follow simple rules when choosing the 12 to 15 products for each box:

  • Our biggest crushes - like licorice, gummies, anything marshmallow (preferably covered in chocolate), crunchy sours, anything with voltage fruit get the idea
  • Decent quantities - not just a few pieces of candy...but the whole package
  • Some English chocolate or candy - life's just not complete with some British candy goodness. We always like to add some international flair!

Is your candy and chocolate suitable for vegans and vegetarians?

Absolutely. We have one-time and subscription boxes completely vegan friendly and vegetarian. Please contact us at with any specific questions about ingredients. These boxes make wonderful and thoughtful gifts for those special vegans or vegetarians in your life (or yourself, for that matter...)

If you are a pure vegan (no dairy), please drop us a line at to make sure we meet your needs.

Do you have anything sugar-free?

Yes! We have The Diabetic Nibbler Box containing sugar-free sweets from around the world. Expect 10 packages and individually wrapped candy and chocolate such as Russell Stover, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Jolly Ranchers and Life Savers. Carbs information included in each box.

How long does it take for the candy to show up?

When you order a one-time box - regular or vegan/vegetarian - we ship within 24 hours on business days.

When you place a subscription order - for three, six or 12 months - we ship on the 8th day of each month.

We use Canada Post's expedited service so that your box arrives as soon as possible.

What is your privacy policy?

We collect personal information that identifies you as an individual, for example, your name, address or e-mail address that you voluntarily provide to us through orders, responses to surveys or contests. Information submitted may be used for marketing and promotional purposes in Canada by Aaron's Sweet Shop. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Do I get the same stuff every month?

No, if you take out any of our subscriptions to Aaron's Sweet Shop candy boxes, you will receive a varied rotation of the good stuff each month. You can expect a few surprises thrown in with your subscriptions addition to all that sugar goodness, of course.


Do you ship chocolate in the summer?

In times of hot weather and humidity, we will ship only candy because of the likelihood of chocolate melting! Nothing says I care like a box of melted chocolate....NOT!!

What about specific dietary needs?

Please contact us at with any specific questions regarding your requirements. We will try our best to help you out and will be in touch. Our philosophy is to share our joy and love of all things sweet and we totally respect that this means getting you awesome and appropriate candy and chocolate.

Do you give away free boxes for charities or special events?

We do supply complimentary boxes on occasion. As you can imagine, given that EVERYONE loves candy and chocolate, we get quite a number of requests for free boxes. While we cannot say yes to everyone, we will provide a complimentary box when we can.
