Halloween is fast approaching, and with all of the trick-or-treaters in Katy, you need a lot of candy! We decided to buy online this year through Amazon, and I wanted to write a quick review because our experience was very positive.
We ordered four types of chocolate candy, all for unbeatable prices. The bags came in one big box surrounded by about fifteen ice packs to keep the sweets from melting. If you get Super Saver Shipping (which is free shipping) you really could not ask for a better deal. Now, I do not have to worry about stocking up on overpriced candy, and I have a lifetime supply of lunch bag coolers!
