If you have not ALREADY invested a lot of time and money, then cut your losses. These people are showing their true colors before there is any profits. How will they behave when real money is at stake? You will be in a much bigger headache in a couple of years once real cash flow starts coming. I would walk away. Then I would start a new website specialcandies.com (people always search in plurals for some reason) and make my own business without them, if I was so passionate about these candies.
That'll give them something to sue you over later :)
