Seal the bag and suck out the remaining air. This will keep the candy fresh and soft for longer period of time. After sealing the plastic bag, keep the candies in a small cardboard box. If you are sending the purchased candies, you can ship them in their original packaging.

  • Wrap the box in two to three layers of bubble wrap. Tape the bubble wrap tightly around the box.

  • If you are shipping during summer time, you can add cool packs. Add them just before shipping the candies. This will keep the candy fresh. Put the cool packs in the plastic bubble wrap close to, but not touching the boxes. You can also use insulated bubble material or bubble envelopes for temperature control.

  • Now you need to fill the shipping box. You can fill it with craft paper, bubble wrap, old newspaper or any other packing material. Make sure to pack it firmly so that it creates a good bed for the candies.

  • Keep the bubble wrapped candies into the box. Cover it with more packing materials in order to prevent any sort of breakage during transport.
