    That is a "sweet" margin indeed.

    My sales rep once included my wife's favorite candy, banana Laffy Taffy's, and I had commented on that kind of as a joke. But from that point on every order has had a disproportionately heavy helping of those candies.

    $800 worth of lights got a nice big bag of them, my wife was thrilled!

    Man...I only ever get one single bag regardless of how much stuff I order.

    It's not a huge deal though, I only ever eat the laffy taffy.

    I once got "stiffed" on one order with a bag of nothing but peppermints. I jokingly complained to a friend who worked in reception. Next orders, I've been overloaded with the candies I do like.

    I'n diabetic. But, my wife isn't. I have a few times returned items from Sweetwater, and usually when I do that, I put the candy back in the package, figuring the person opening the box is doing me a favor, and might need a snack. But one time, I went to return something, and...my wife had already eaten the candy. To Sweetwater's credit, they still processed the return and gave me my money back. Now I hide the candy for a few days just in case.

    Sweetwater candies are the silliest thing ever conceived in retail history.
