A word for kids … of all ages!

Welcome to the official consumer website of the National Confectioners Association! We are proud to have this opportunity to tell you a little about the wonderful world of candy. Along the way, we also hope you have some fun. However, before you begin exploring, we’d like to share with you the steps we have taken to ensure that our online visitors have a safe and enjoyable experience.

Our Websites and Kids

We take seriously our responsibility to our many young consumers. Our sites have been designed to be fun, accessible, and safe for kids of all ages. As members of the Children’s Advertising Review Unit (CARU) division of the Better Business Bureau, we strive to adhere to their guidelines. If you are 18 years of age or younger, take a moment to review this information with your parents. And, please, get your parents’ permission before providing any personal information by e-mail – not only on our websites, but everywhere.


Our Web server automatically recognizes a visitor’s domain name. However, it does not recognize visitors’ e-mail addresses. Domain name information, aggregate information about which pages consumers access or visit, and any information volunteered by visitors is used only for internal review as we continue to improve our Website. E-mail addresses of those corresponding via this site are discarded after we respond. Information gathered from these sites is not shared with other organizations for any other purposes.


We do not require visitors to register before entering the CandyUSA site. E-mail addresses are only requested for special contests. Information collected from contest participants is discarded by NCA following each contest period. When winning entries are posted on the site only first name, city and state shall be used.

Any personal information you provide is used only to supply the information or services you request. It is not shared with other organizations for commercial purposes, nor is it used for unsolicited follow-up contacts from us.


Our policy is to NewLink only to other sites which maintain the same safety and privacy standards to which we adhere.

If you have any additional questions about our privacy policy, please don’t hesitate to contact us by e-mail at: info@candyusa.org or write to the address below:
