Help! My Mushroom tin won’t open!
Because of the mushroom cap design of the tin, sometimes these make a vacuum seal that makes it hard to open! One trick we’ve found with the tins is to push them in first – you’ll hear a click (that is the vacuum being broken) – then pop the top off. After that, it’s easiest to turn them counter-clockwise to pull them off.
I have one of your products – how can I tell when it expires?
Our candies have a code printed on the back or the edge of the tin which indicates the date it was produced. It should be a 4 or 5 digit code. The first two numbers (or first number) indicates the year. The last three numbers indicate the day of the year (1 – 365).
As an example, a candy that has a code of 11070 would indicate that this was made on the 70th day of the year (March 11th) in 2011. Our candies have a 3 year shelf life before they go stale.
The Duff energy drinks have a similar code printed on the bottom of the can (YYDDD) and they have an 18 month shelf life.
All of the other Boston America drinks have a different code on the bottom of the can.
An example: C1124BA-G:
C stands for March
(3rd letter of the alphabet and 3rd month)
11 stands for 2011
24 stands for the 24th day of the month
and BA is Boston America
G is the color of the drink (Green/melon, Red/cherry, Blue/raspberry, Yellow/citrus, or Pink/bubblegum)
In this example the drink flavor is melon flavored and it was produced on March 24, 2011
Do the lip balms expire?
No. Our lip balms do not contain SPF, which is the only active ingredient that would expire. Please note that lip balms are heat sensitive and will melt if left in the sun or in an environment over 90 degrees.
Do you make custom tinned candies or drinks?
No. Our company is not suited to produce custom or private label items.
Are your energy drinks safe for children?
No. We recommend that children and pre-teens should avoid consuming energy drinks due to the high content of caffeine, sugar, B-vitamins and other supplemental herbs such as guarana and taurine which may be harmful to growing children. These drinks may also be harmful to individuals who are sensitive to caffeine, sugar and energy supplements.
Do you have any drinks without caffeine?
Yes. Our Hello Kitty Fizzy Pop and Rainbow Dash Fizzy Cherry Splash drinks are both non-caffeinated.
I am having a party (wedding, bar mitzvah, birthday, etc.) and cannot find enough of your items in the stores that I can use for favors. Can I buy from you directly in bulk?
Are any of your candies sugar-free?
Are your flavored lip balms safe to consume?
While they are very tasty and safe for licking your lips, we do not recommend eating the lip balm. It is a flavored/scented cosmetic item, not a food.
Are any of your items made in the USA?
Yes. All of our drinks and many of our lip balms (General Mills, Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, Candy Land and Sour Punch) are made in the United States.
