TikTokers call out Scammy Candy Planet “bucket” ad

Aside from cheating headphones and questionable hoodies, there is one more cheating TikTok ad to watch out for: a bucket of candy.

As detailed in a series of Vireal TikTok videos by user Hope (@imurlasthope), an ad for Candy Planet circulated on the app touting a $51 “candy bucket” containing a variety of gummy candies. From the way the “bucket” is framed in the ad, it looks pretty big. But when Hope finally received the candy, she said the container looked more like a tub of frozen yogurt.

“I could have gotten that amount of candy for two dollars at the dollar store,” she says.

Other TikTokers have posted similar videos, explaining that they thought they would get the advertised bucket, but they received something much smaller, often half full.

There also seems to be some confusion about weight and size. Another TikToker went through the Candy Planet website’s terms of service and showed the fine print, which appears to exempt the brand from having to make returns or sell what it’s actually promoting. The Candy Planet TikTok account has been gone since Friday morning, but the site is still live and promoting a “jumbo bucket.” The Daily Dot emailed Candy Planet for comment.

In another video, Hope says the candy is only “mediocre” and definitely not worth $50. The Daily Dot emailed Hope for comment.
