Candy Purchasing Tips

It is always best to find a few local sources so that you can quickly purchase candy as needed, and to avoid shipping costs.

Bring a calculator, pen and a pad of paper to record the different prices. Watch for fliers, coupons and store specials to get even greater discounts.

You should be paying between 1 cents to 5 cents per piece of candy. Route drivers commonly charge "50c or three for $1.00" (as you can see, there is a nice profit margin).
