Closing Date: Sep 27, 2021

Expected Ship Date: Jul 2022

📅 May 25, 2022 - CandyBars will be done by the end of the week! They are scheduled to make it on our next shipment, and we are hoping to have this by July. Until our shipment is on a boat, this is just a hopeful guesstimation but we are working very hard to make it happen. 

📅 Apr 29, 2022 - China's COVID shutdowns have delayed Candybar production. While they are making progress, there has been some delays with the packaging. We are hopeful to have these fully finished and shipped whenever we are able to schedule our next shipment, but at this time we just wait for our week to week updates. 

📅 Mar 18, 2022 — The product of CandyBar R3 is still ongoing. Cases have been completed, and look great. The factory faced a new round of COVID delays and had to shutdown. We are currently waiting on some other items to be complete, such as PCB's, and packaging. We will provide updates as we get them. 

📅 Feb 26, 2022 — The product of CandyBar R3 is still ongoing, we are hoping to have them completed by end of March. Unfortunately, our factory faced another shut down due to COVID which has caused delays we were not expecting. As production finishes, we will have a better estimate on shipping and fulfillment. 

📅 Jan 31, 2022 — Nothing significant to report on the production of CandyBar R3. We are still waiting to hear an estimated fulfillment date, and will continue to provide updates.

📅 Dec 23, 2021 — CandyBar production is going smoothly. We have progressed to machining the cases and are excited to see some of the preliminary final products. We are still waiting to hear an estimated fulfillment date, and will continue to provide updates.

📅 Dec 01, 2021 — No significant updates on CandyBar Round 3. It is in production, but with ongoing delays in shipping, and the power outages throughout China, a final fulfillment date is hard to predict. 

📅 Nov 05, 2021 — No significant updates on CandyBar Round 3. It is in production, but with ongoing delays in shipping, and the power outages throughout China, a final fulfillment date is hard to predict. 

📅 Oct 13, 2021 — The group buy for CandyBar Round 3, including all of the offered products, closed in September, 2021. Production has already started, but with ongoing delays in shipping, and the power outages throughout China, a final fulfillment date is hard to predict. We are hoping for a timeframe within Q2 of 2022, but that is optimistic. As production progresses, we will keep you updated. 

📅 Sep 3, 2021 — CandyBar Round 3, and all associated products are open until 27 Sep 2021. Check out all the options, even a la carte options!
