"There’s nothing like waking to the sweet aroma of honey, cinnamon and spices in the air. My mom would bake her beloved gingerbread cookies while my brothers and I slept, hiding them in our stockings to be discovered in the morning. My mouth waters just thinking of that ooey gooey goodness. Crafted with nibbles of scrumptious gingerbread cookies enveloped in my blend of creamy milk chocolate, this bar is my way of sharing with you one of my favorite Christmas memories. My hope is that, in every delectable bite, you’ll find a little joy. And joy, my friends, is deliciously contagious. Wishing you the happiest of holidays and a very sweet New Year, Chef Michael Antonorsi"
Orders are shipped from San Diego, CA Monday-Thursday. No orders are shipped Friday through Sunday in an effort to protect the integrity of the chocolate and avoid possible heat damage associated with shipments in transit over the weekend.

Shipping chocolate in hot weather can be tricky. We take extra precautions when the temperature rises above 72 degrees (the temperature chocolate starts to melt) to make sure our chocolate gets to you in the best possible condition.
Ground Shipping may not be an available shipping option: Our team diligently tracks weather patterns across the U.S. If the route to your location crosses a warm area, we remove Ground as a shipping option to ensure your chocolate arrives in the best possible condition.
Ship to a Business Address: We ship with ice packs and insulated bags to help make sure your chocolate arrives just the way it should. However, even with ice packs, your chocolate may melt if left out in the hot sun. We highly recommend shipping to a business address instead of residential so that your chocolate can be brought inside quickly. We are not responsible for melted chocolate if the package has been left outside.
We may need to upgrade your shipping: Sometimes, your shipping may need to be upgraded to expedited or overnight shipping due to hot weather. In these cases, we will always call and confirm if this is ok with you. Increased shipping charges may apply.
Saturday delivery is only available via USPS.
