Halloween candy replenishments: just another way drone delivery can help

I wanted to share a little bit about a helpful new drone delivery service that we’re trying out today: halloween candy refills.

I think we’ve all been there, when you underestimate the number of trick-or-treaters and suddenly your entire street is crawling with more little ghosts and goblins than you’ve ever seen before. Pretty soon, you realize you’re starting to run low on candy and the big kids haven’t even hit the block yet.

Up until now, you had a limited number of options: run to the store in the middle of all the excitement, or turn off your lights and become forever known as “that house.”

But that’s why this year we worked with Walmart to add halloween candy to the drone delivery catalog in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The service is live right now, and real families are keeping their candy bowls stocked with drone delivery in 30 minutes or less.

It may just be one night a year, but this is the latest example of one of the little ways drone delivery can make life easier. So to all our orderers out there, I hope you have a safe, enjoyable, and candy-filled halloween!
