Walter W. Reid Jr. founded the Charms Candy Company in 1912.The company was originally called Tropical Charms, a reference to the individually wrapped square shaped hard candies, which were one of the first to be individually wrapped in cellophane. Tropical Charms was founded in Bloomfield, NJ. The company name was eventually shortened to Charms. During World War II, the U.S. Army began including Charms candies in combat rations as a supplemental energy form.
IMPORTANT! Here is what you need to know when you have to have a melt-able product and it is just plain hot out!
If you take the these precautions as follows:
- Ship to a valid business address where someone is there to receive the package on the first attempt and get it into a cool room.
- Purchase our ice pack protection, which is offered in the shopping cart page
... and if your candy STILL melts, we will provide a refund for the melted item. We will not reship these items. If you do not take these precautions we cannot assume any risk of melting and cannot issue a refund or product replacement.
To avoid melting on idle delivery trucks over the weekend, melt-able orders will not be shipped when the ETA includes transport over a weekend. If you are unsure of ground transit times please call us at 888-729-1960.
